All athletes should be doing some form of chin up or pull-up. Pulling action movements are one primary movement pattern that everyone needs. Weighted rows (Bent Over Row) and pulls (i.e. Lat Pull Down) should be part of an athlete’s regular program. Chin & Pull Ups are ideal for developing relative body weight strength. For some athletes, the pursuit of pull-ups can be intimidating. The video above is an excellent training program for developing pull-ups/chin-ups. If you are simply looking to increase the number of pull-ups, this program will improve your overall work capacity. Even if you can already do pull-ups, I still suggest breaking them down into phases like the video as part of a warm-up.
