Targeted muscles: Back, shoulders, biceps
Assume neutral grip (palms facing each other) on pull-up bar
Without swinging body, pull yourself up until chin is above bar
Lower with control until arms are straight
The Word: “Pull-ups are one of the best scapular exercises you can do if you have healthy shoulders. We first use Keiser machines for assistance and gradually work toward using them for resistance. The neutral grip frees up the motion and decreases the chance of shoulder or elbow impingement.”
*If neutral grip is not available, loop two towels around bar.
