How to get Ultimate Pull-up Strength
When I coached gymnastics, one of the first exercises the kids learned was pullups. Pullups are so important that they had to learn them as early as possible.
Why? Pullups are one of the foundations of supreme strength and athleticism, for any sport. They balance out the body, they build the entire upper body – from hands to core – in a different way you can’t get from other exercises.
Their compound movement is key for developing functional strength and athleticism. Also, they’re one of the best muscle-builders out there.
I’m good at pullups, and I know how to coach them, I understand how to get strong and stay injury free. But I admit when someone is much better at it than I. And I’ll gladly share their secrets if it’ll help someone else.
My friend Garin Bader has teamed up with Dutch gymnast and acrobat Cees de Kok to create the most phenomenally phenomenal program Ultimate Pull-Up Strength Training.
Cees is a master at pullups. He was a Dutch gymnastics champion. He’s still so good at them he does them professionally, in a way. He “flies” for a living as an acrobat in a Cirque du Soleil type show in Las Vegas.
But, okay, he’s great at pullups. That’s impressive and all but can he teach? Can he coach other people to get good at them?
That’s the important question. Not all athletes can share their knowledge in a simple way where even the pure beginner can understand. I’m more interested in what kind of a teacher someone is rather than his resume. Can Cees coach?
The answer is YES, Cees can teach. Both he and Garin are fantastic teachers for all levels, beginner through advanced, regardless of whether you can do a single pullup or are a high level gymnast. Their instruction is awesome.
Garin and Cees have the art of pullups down to a science. They make getting strong in pullups so simple and brain dead – something perfect for me – that anyone can get good fast.
Simple tweaks and techniques that will get you strong faster without any injury. In fact, I don’t train my pullups any other way now.
