My First 2024 Pull Up Workout!


My First 2024 Pull Up Workout!

I had to step back a bit from training my upper body for the last 4 weeks of 2023.

This was due to different minor injuries, some tendonitis and chronic fatigue, after a full 2023 year of constant, non-stop work and workouts.

I stayed active everyday and arranged my workouts around legs, running and core during the month of December.

I also did some rehab work with bands and active mobility (wrists, shoulders, hips, knees and feet).

Today was my first “real” pull-push day in a month. It was great to be back at it!

I used an additional gripping tool that you simply wrap up around the pull up bar to make the bar thicker and harder to grip.

It makes it almost impossible to wrap your thumb around the bar making the forearms and the entire pulling muscle chain work much harder.

The "fat grip" pull ups are a great tool if you want to build strong forearms and increase your pull ups. They make pull ups twice as hard!

Here is what my full workout looks like: 200 pull ups, 100 dips and 100 leg raises.

I broke it down as follow:

  • 100 “fat grip” pull ups: 10 x 10
  • 100 Large band assist pull ups: 20-20-15-15-15-15
  • 100 dips: 10 x 10
  • 100 leg raises: 20 x 5

I took 45-90 seconds rest between sets.
