Hey there. My name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister, and today I'm going to demonstrate what exactly is a strict pull-up. Now pull-ups, once again, you heard me say it a thousand and one times, and I'm going to continue to echo the sentiment that pull-ups are one of the best exercises you can do for your upper body. Not only for your back to create that beautiful V that all men want and women want as well to see. You got to also build your shoulders, your biceps and even some of your core muscles in this pull-up exercise. So I'm going to demonstrate what a real pull-up looks like. A lot of people do pull-ups, but a lot of people aren't doing them right. So this is how a real pull-up looks. Now you use two grips. You can either put your hands around the bar with thumbs around. Or you can put your thumbs on the same side as the rest of your fingers. I like to go with thumbs on the same side as the rest of my fingers. That's called a monkey grip. Alright, so we've got a grip here. And the idea is to extend your arms as long as you can get them. And then pull yourself up. And then down. All the way down. Now most people will do a move like this. They'll go half way up and half way down. Half way up and that's not a proper pull-up. A strict pull-up goes by the strict code of pulling your chin all the way to the bar, arms straight down. All the way up, all the way down. Last one, all the way up and my name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister. And that is how you execute a strict pull-up.
