If you have mastered a Pull Up, keep reading this applies to any skill or goal you are chasing.
Pull ups are a staple movement in many sports, they demonstrate a good base level of bodyweight strength, control, core and shoulder health. They are also an essential movement for developing other gymnastics based skills.
We have helped hundreds of women and men get their first, second, third and beyond Strict Pull up. In our eyes, guess who is the most impressive?
Back to our question, what have you done in the past 3 months to get your first strict pull up? The reason we pose this question is that many people that come to Dalecki Strength for help with goals like this, they train daily doing CrossFit, pole dancing, boxing or yoga etc, but daily training is often not enough for a specific goal.
We have found a sweet spot, for most people doing 2-3 days of “specific” training toward your pull up. Other days can be spent doing your chosen sport.
Here is our quick checklist to help you on your way:
Dedicate time, put it in your calendar
Check in with yourself weekly to ensure you have done your best towards your goal
Nutrition, this is whole other topic, but keep in mind that nutrition is extremely important, not just for pull ups and gymnastics but every sport will have a different nutritional needs. For gymnastics, lean muscle is essential.
Program, ensure your program takes care of the following elements, joint mobility and stability, core, well rounded strength and skills.
