Pull-ups. You hate them or you love them. Or you love to hate them. Either way it’s an exercise that many people do, but the majority of people are doing them wrong. Yes, most of those people you see in the gym doing pull-ups are doing them wrong. Done properly, pull-ups can help build up muscle and strength in you shoulders, back and arms, but done wrong can lead to injury. Full range of motion down and up is important. Your shoulders need to be set properly when starting the pull-up. Choose the right variation for you current strength. Engage your shoulders at the top not at the start. No violent kipping motions, it’s not about speed it’s about doing the pull-ups properly.
