Pull-Ups Exercise Videos and Tips

Awesome Pull-Ups Exercise Videos and Tips

When it comes to upper body development, pull-ups can be very effective. However, pull-ups are oftentimes an overlooked exercise. As we mentioned in the Bodyweight Training Videos and Tips blog post, pull-ups are one of the three fundamental bodyweight training exercises that build muscle and strength. They are known to develop upper body muscles, including biceps, triceps, lats, traps and abs.

Whether you're a bodybuilder, fitness trainer or just want a great workout, pull-ups should be an integral part of your strength training regimen. They're ideal to warm up and cool down for upper-body sessions, and are a great way to add variety to your workout routine. In addition, you can easily increase the difficulty by performing weighted pull-ups by adding a weight belt around your waist, wearing a weight vest, or holding a dumbbell between your ankles or knees.

We've gathered a few videos about pull-ups for you, including one that shows the difference between chin-ups and pull-ups and another that shows common mistakes. Plus, we found a video that talks about the recent Guinness World Record holder for pull-ups. We've also created a dedicated Pinterest board with Pull-Ups Tips and Videos.

What’s the Difference Between Pull-Ups and Chin-Ups?

Get the lowdown on the major distinctions between a pull-up, chin-up and neutral-grip pull-up. They all concentrate on the biceps, lats, traps, brachialis and posterior delts. You’ll find that the pecs and traps are activated first, followed by the biceps and lats. However, it’s all in where the emphasis is. For example, when we look at the overhand pull-up, we notice that it is easier on the wrists and elbows, while focusing on the forearm flexors, brachialis, brachioradialis and lower traps. Now, when it comes to the neutral chin-up or neutral pull-up, the palms are facing each other, and there is more emphasis on the rhomboid and lats. Whereas the underhand grip chin-up focuses on the biceps and lats more than a neutral pull-up, while also targeting the teres major, posterior delt, rhomboids and lower traps.

How to Avoid Common Mistakes When Doing Pull-ups

While pull-ups are an excellent indication of overall strength and a great exercise to build back muscles, there are five common mistakes people make when doing them. One of the Buff Dudes take us through the most frequent faux pas to help you avoid making them when performing this exercise. In the video, they discuss these five common pull-ups exercise mistakes:

1. Using Your Momentum
2. Elbows in Wrong Position
3. Not Pulling Your Shoulders Down and Back
4. Not Performing Full Range of Motion
5. Not Being Able to Complete a Pull-Up

Breaking the Guinness World Record for Pull-Ups

How many pull-ups can you do in a 24-hour period? When 54-year-old Mark Jordan from Corpus Christi, Texas answers this question, he breaks records. He spent a year preparing for this moment. Not only did he work out and practice, but he also focused on a solid strategy. In November of 2014, Mark was put to the test for a chance to break the Guinness World Record and succeeded by accomplishing a total of 4,321 pull-ups in 24 hours. In March of 2015, Guinness World Records confirmed that Mark Jordan holds the record for Most Pull-ups in 24 hours. Check out his achievement with this video report from USA Today.
