How to do a Pull-up with Steve

Technique

As part of our workout Metabolic Effect post with Steve he recommended doing pull-ups as part of a combination of moves and here he breaks it down for us.

Begin from a dead hang: arms fully extended, hands about shoulder width apart (palms facing out for pull-ups, elbows straight, chest up, shoulders back and tight, eyes trained on the bar above (palms facing out for pull-ups, elbows straight, chest up, shoulders back and tight, eyes trained on the bar above).

Pull yourself up toward the bar, leading with the chest and keeping your eyes focused on the bar. Drive your elbows toward the floor.

Clear the bar with your chin.

Lower yourself in a controlled fashion, then repeat the process.
