The Secret To Be Good At Pull Ups

Uncategorized Jan 12, 2022

Let's talk about the secret to get good at pull ups: the "false" grip.

Many people want to do pull ups but their grip strength gives up after a few repetitions.

Keep in mind that your grip is one of the most important component of strength, and being able to hold a bar with a "false grip" will dramatically improve the quality of all your movements.

This will increase your pull ups, muscle ups, as well as push ups, handstands and more.

The "False" grip generates a lot of contraction in the forearms and forces us to use more of our forearm extensors, while these are usually under trained with a "classic" grip.

You will find 3 different levels of training for your false grip:

  • Beginner: 0'
  • Intermediate: 2'58
  • Advanced: 6'13

Practice at the level that suits you, and work your way up progressively!

Have a good workout!

How To Improve Your Squats

Uncategorized Nov 28, 2020

The short answer is: better ankle mobility.

I highly recommend to get some video footage of your training sessions with your phone, when you have a chance. Not for Instagram, but to help you picture your movement while you are performing it.

It's actually how pro athletes train, with more cameras. Attention to details will increase your results. It is simple and does wonders to your workouts and progress over time.

You can take a few 10-15 sec highlight snippets, of any movement, to check your form, and see where you can make progress, then adjust your form next time you train. 

Here is the latest video I posted on our channel to improve something very important: ankle mobility. 

This will make your legs more mobile and improve your squat!

Watch it here. 

Have a good squat session later!
