Do More Pull Ups ! - By doing more Push ups!
Yes, this may sound strange but it is true. In this post, I will talk about what kind of exercises which you can do to improve in your pull ups.
The first exercise is actually push ups. Many people are not able to do pull ups because they lack the arm power. In order to increase your arm power, the first basic exercise you should start with is push ups. Again, like pull ups, there are many different kind of push ups that trains different muscle groups. I am going to list a few:
-Normal Push Ups: This push up is done with your hands placed shoulder width apart. Lower yourself down until your face is close to the floor, and your elbows are at least 90 degrees. Then push yourself up. This is counted as a normal push up.
-Wide Arm Push Ups: This push up is done with your hands placed wide apart, wider than your shoulder width. Lower yourself down until your face is close to the floor, and your elbows are at least 90 degrees. Then push yourself up. This is counted as a wide arm push up. Wide arm push ups trains more of your chest muscle as it works the chest more. You should be able to feel the strain on your chest after doing wide arm push ups.
-Diamond Push Ups: This push up is done with your palms placed close to each other, and forming a diamond shape with your index fingers and thumbs. Lower yourself down like a normal push up, and you will feel the strain on your triceps. Diamond push ups are very good in training your triceps.
The 3 push ups stated above are very good push ups that helps to build up your arm power. Therefore, do them in sets of 10 reps if you are a starter, and then gradually increase them as you improve gradually.
In time to come, your armpower will increase and then doing pull ups will be much easier for you!
Train hard and put in effort, your hardwork will certainly pay off.
