If you don’t do Pull Ups you should! They are an easy and hugely beneficial exercise method that will get you results. Here are 5 reasons that YOU should include Pull Ups in your weekly workout plan….
- Fat Loss
Pull Ups really increase your heart rate and therefore burn fat. They will also burn fat in places that other, more aerobic ways of fat burning, wouldn’t. Think about how shredded a climber is! To increase fat loss decrease the time between pull up sets.
- It’s a Compound Exercise
Look at Pull Ups like squatting – they are both compact exercises that lead to huge growth. Pull Ups will grow your upper body more than other exercises
- You can control the intensity
We all know that increasing intensity is important. It is very easy to do this with a Pull Up. It is also a hugely convenient exercise to do.
Pull Ups increase your grip strength massively; if you want to be a body builder then you need a good grip – 2 birds, one stone!
You can vary your Pull Up technique to hone in on specific muscle groups. This allows you to improve your all over physique by working these different muscle groups.
