Hey there . My name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister. And today, I'm going to demonstrate two exercises that will help you perform pull-ups better. Now pull-ups are one of the best upper body builders. Hands down. Now the reason why most people shy away from pull-ups is because they're actually very tough to do. You're called on pulling up your own body weight and that's an exercise that we typically don't do. Our sedentary lifestyles don't really call for a whole lot of climbing anymore. So we don't activate those muscles typically that help pull up our bodies. So today I am going to show you two exercises right quick that will help you be able to perform pull-ups better. The first one we are going to start with a 25 pound dumbbell. We are going to open our legs, bend over, core back. Back is nice and flat. And we are going to just pull up, pull up. Again we are just working the pull mechanism in our back. Then we do the same thing on the other side. We are using one dumbbell at a time so we can isolate one side and force the body to actually engage on all levels. Now that's the first exercise. So we have a pull-up bar here. What I am going to do is jump and hang. Jump and hang. Just so I can get an opportunity to work that mechanism and feel how it activates. And the more I do this the higher I'll be able to get. So I'm jumping for the bar and all I want to do is pull as high as I can, and down. Pull as high as I can. And now you are working those muscles, squeezing those shoulder blades back so you ultimately be able to come all the way up. My name is Jay Jones, celebrity peak performance coach and fitness minister. And those are just two exercises that you can do to help build your pull-up power.
