LEVEL

◼︎ Beginner

DURATION

◼︎ 15 – 45 Minutes

DESCRIPTION

◼︎ Our Pull-Up Program is designed to assist you in achieving your first Pull-Up. The program is designed in 6 PHASES, each phase will build on the last.

WORKOUT FREQUENCY

◼︎ Like all of our programs, it is reasonably flexible in its application. It can be done as little as once per week with the ideal frequency being three times per week with at least one rest day between each workout.

◼︎ There is no set length to each phase. You will continue with that phase until you can complete all the allocated sets and reps. Once you reach this stage we want you to stay with that phase for another 2 weeks allowing your body to fully adapt before overloading it with the next phase.

SETS AND REPS

◼︎ The Sets are always fixed however the Repetitions give you a range that you can perform. That being said do not move on to the next phase before you can complete the sets with the high end of the rep range.

REST PERIODS

◼︎ In regards to rest periods again there is no set amount of rest time. Rest as long as needed to give the next set your full effort. Generally, this will be between 1 – 3 Mins.

EQUIPMENT

◼︎ Pull-Up Bar or Rig
◼︎ Box or Bench
◼︎ Gymnastic Rings or TRX
