Mastering the pull-up

I’ve always been skinny. The only reason I started Freeletics is because I was getting a little beer belly. My arms have never had much muscle to them. My dad used to say my muscles were like “knots in cotton”. Thanks Dad.

So pull-ups have always alluded me. I just don’t have the strength to lift my body weight. Physically can’t do it.

You may remember a few weeks back I had to abort the 50 pull-ups Coach had given me.

I’m determined to master them. I feel stronger from my 12 or so weeks on Freeletics, but I need to pay more attention to shoulders, chest and arms of I’m to get those pull-ups down.

So I’ve decided to do 10 every day. Starting with jumping pull-ups for a couple of weeks and then working to proper ones. I’ll let you know how I get on.
