Just got done with a smashing “pre-festival of lights” workout here in Northern India – accomplished entirely in the dark in a park on my lonesome.
Or “by” my lonesome, I should say, hehe. I had myself, a straggler or two – and THICK, thick bars for company – and believe me now and trust me later, it was one of the best ones in recent times.
Thats a tip right there – a very important tip to getting better at not just pull-ups – but building a rock solid GRIP as well – and one covered in the Gorilla Grip compliation, but for now – back to “legs and pull-ups”.
In “Pull-ups from Dud to STUD – within a matter of WEEKS” I went into the right technique of doing pull-ups and covered the right way of doing them.
I’ve given you the exact technique on how to do ’em and have BROKEN the technique down “step by step” so that even a rank beginner can understand and progress in this excellent, excellent exercise – and truth be told, many a beginner HAS gone on to achieve “stud” level at pull-ups after implementing what I’ve told you in this course.
But what I’ve covered in the first course is just the tip of the iceberg, my friend.
In that book I told you that correct form for pull-ups entails keeping your ankles crossed as it “traditionally” taught – – so your legs form a “V” with the rest of your body – – and truth be told, this is precisely how a beginner (or even someone at intermediate level) at pull-ups should START off.
However, would you believe it that leg positioning can – and DOES – increase the difficulty of the pull-up and – IS – a hidden key to improving at this exercise?
Most of y’all reading this will nod and go “Yes”. He BE talking about “L-sit pull-ups” – or hanging leg raises, and while yes, these are excellent and advanced variations on the pull-up that isn’t what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about a style of pull-up that has the legs positioned such that your BUTTOCKS and CORE are taxed at a far, far greater level than in the regular pull-up.
A style of leg positioning that truly builds the base for something SUPERLATIVE when it comes to improving at pull-ups.
And a style of leg positioning that used to be a staple in old time strongman training – as well as in the military, but has, like many other excellent exercises and exercise variations of yore somehow lost favor – and has been replaced by the “easier” variant of the exercise.
You’ll have to crack open “Pull-ups – from STUD to SUPER STUD” to learn what this variant is – and believe me, if you’re looking to take your pull-ups to the next level – then THIS course – and all the different style of pull-ups mentioned therein are an absolute must to MASTER, my friend.
You might never get to mastery at all of them, or even one, of course, but the sheer process of getting there will build a solid base that few other exercise combos can when it comes to packing on lumps of muscle quickly onto your upper body – – and also – – hold on to your HATS – – give you a pretty good cardio workout with nothing other than pull-ups and the odd pushing movement (if you so choose).
Yes, that’s right – cardio with pull-ups.
And for the “Shirley Maclaine” types amongst you – I’ve even included a variant on the pull-up that might just have you “meditating” mid – pull-up – – and lest you think I’ve gone off my rocker here – – no I haven’t.
Crack open the book – and you’ll see what I mean!
Anyway, that’s it for now. My arms are still zinging, and I’m off for some R&R now!
