Benefits of Pull-Ups

Pull-up athlete
Pull-ups (also called Chin-Ups) are one of the best exercises for building upper body, back and core strength.

Benefit of Pull-Ups # 1

Pull-ups are simple to do and require a very simple piece of exercise equipment: a pull-up bar.

Benefit of Pull-Ups # 2

They're an important part of any well-rounded strength training program and one of the best ways to keep your back healthy, strong, and free of injury. With a little creativity and a few basic equipment additions (resistance bands, Ab straps) you can perform a workout that targets your whole body.

Benefit of Pull-Ups # 3

Pull-ups work multiple muscles including your Latissimus Dorsi, Biceps, Forearm and Upper back Muscles. This not only makes for a more efficient workout, but it also makes for a more effective fat burning workout. The reason for that is simple: Muscles need calories to work, and the more muscles you use, the more calories you burn.

Combine pull-ups with push-ups and sit-ups and you have the perfect home workout at very little cost.

*   Always talk with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
