Any Buddy can do a pull-up!!
I am constantly asked the question “what do you do with your kids?” I do all the exercises that are efficient and effective but also the ones that everyone wants to do; the ones that increase confidence and cause those uncontrolled reactions of excitement as if you’ve just won a gold medal. One such exercise is the pull-up. There is just something about pulling yourself up over the bar for the first time, smiling on the other side, and then doing it over and over again. It’s contagious. It’s motivating. I’ve had numerous clients who have said “oh that’s not for me” or “I’ll never be able to do that” but after they witness client after client (and clients of all shapes, sizes and ages) do a pull up, they’re sold. I want in!
FITBuddies are the same way. The look around the gym and want to do everything everyone else is doing. I want them to do everything everyone else is and I also know if taught properly, in stages, they CAN do it. I do not change what I teach them versus what I teach my other clients to do. I change HOW I teach them. There’s a difference. A very big difference.
You may be thinking yourself, “I can’t do a pull-up.” As my FITBuddies would say, “if we can do it, so can you.” There are TONS of ways to progress to a pull-up. Whether you are doing pull ups from rings, a bar, jumping from a box, using bands, or an assisted machine, the feeling of accomplishment is the same: get your chin over the bar and smile, you’ve reached the other side and trust me, someone in the gym just noticed you and was inspired by you.
