Simranjot S. Josan's curator insight, April 9, 2013 1:25 PM

When it comes to pull ups, it's always easier for the skinnier people to do but when it comes to the bigger guys it's always a challenge. This article gives great advice on how to solve that very problem. The key is actually to work your way up. The article suggest sfor start off by training the muscles with other free wiehgts first then start with resistance bands that support your knees, kind of acting like an assistant pull-up machine because it is easier to lower your own body weight than to lift it. "Negatives" are basically the opposite of the original workout. So instead ot lifting yuorself, you would use a chair or some sort of support to lift yourself up and then you would lower yourself without the support. Then you could do chin ups, just pull ups to your chin and using an underhanded grip to allow greater use of your biceps. Then after those steps, the article states how to correct your form by practicing and then you're on track to improving your pull-ups!
