Movement Monday: Negative Pull Ups

Looking to build strength by integrating pull ups into your routing....but you can't quite get your chin up to the bar?

No worries. Negatives in physical training are known for their massive effect on the body and this technique can also be applied to building strength to full pull-ups. 

How to do the Negative Pull-Up:

  1. Stand up on a platform or box and grab onto the the pull up bar with your palms facing away from you.
  2. Hold your chin at bar level and step off the box/step.
  3. Slowly let yourself down until your arms are fully extended.
  4. This completes one repetition.

Challenge yourself and your fitness by integrating negative pull ups into your workout routine.
