How To Increase Your Pull-Up Count

do more pull-ups

There are exercises that ALWAYS separate the men from the boys in the gym — pull-ups and kettle bell pirouettes. But let’s concentrate on pull-ups for now, prima ballerina.

Pull-ups are the ultimate upper body exercise, so if you can’t do more than a couple in a row, you’re probably weak sauce. It’s fine. Just like every other exercise, there’s a learning process. But how can you do more pull-ups with those straw arms? Simple.

Check out this handy video from Art Of Manliness that outlines a simple plan to do more pull-ups in no time. For those in the audience without much time to watch a 3 minute video (I like to call them short-cut takers), here’s the “do more pull-ups” plan:

Week 4: 3 sets of 6 reps with :45 rest
Week 5: 5 sets of 10 reps with :45 rest

Now that you can do more pull-ups, it might be time to work on those kettlebell pirouettes. No, no, no, put down those 5lb bells. Let’s start with 50lb. kettlebells, you wuss.
