Everyone wants to be that guy. You know, the guy who hops up to the pullup bar and cranks out a dozen clean reps without even breaking a sweat.
According to Menshealth, Make 2018 the year you become that guy with these five moves, courtesy of Karen Smith, kettlebell instructor and chief bodyweight instructor with StrongFirst.
To elevate your pullup game, incorporate these exercises into your routine three to four times per week. If you’re already doing a lot of pulling work (i.e. deadlifts, pull-ups, rows) during your regular workouts, tackle these exercises only once or twice per week to avoid overtraining.
