Hello, this is Bill Victor with VictorFitnessSystems.com, and I’m here today to talk to you a little bit about how you can increase your strength to be able to do pull-ups and chin-ups, or do more pull-ups and chin-ups. As you can see, I’m standing here in this pull-up rack, and what makes it important is that the best kind of pull-up or chin-up you can do is one that allows you to utilize what they call negative training. So, you want to be able to perform a negative by actually starting where you would finish the pull-up or chin-up and then lower yourself slowly. A negative movement is one where you resist the pull of gravity, and what many people don’t realize is that the negative movement uses about 40 percent more muscle to be able to slow down the speed at which you descend or finish the movement. So, in a pull-up or a chin-up it would look like this. I’m going to use a neutral grip just for the sake of this demonstration, but in a negative assisted movement, I would jump up, I would do it again, and continue to perform this movement as many times as possible so that I could eventually perform the positive part of the movement. Negative training is a great way to increase your pull-ups and chin-ups, build your back, build your arms, build your core. This is Bill Victor with Victor Fitness Systems wishing you a great day and a great workout.
