Hey, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister. And today, I'm going to demonstrate how you can do pull-ups with a dumbbell. Now, once again, the pull-up is one of my favorite upper body builders, but it's also one of the toughest. But, there are those who have mastered the pull-ups to such degree that they need external weight to help make their exercise even more effective. Alright. So, I'm going to demonstrate for that select group of people how you maximize your pull up with the dumbbell. Today, I'm going to have a 25-pound partner ride with me when I go up on my pull-up bar. Alright. So, you don't have to start with the 25, you can actually start with a five and work your way up once you get to about eight to ten pull ups unweighted, alright. Once you get to that level, you're ready to add some extra resistance. So, here we go. I'm going to step up on my box because I can't jump. I'm going to pin the weight between my thighs, I've got my gloves on because I know this is going to be a nice ride. Put your hands on the bar, extend your legs and one, arms all the way down, exhale coming up, two, arms all the way down, exhale coming up, "Phhhhh", three. One more for good measure. Pull all the way up, "Phhhh", and four. Excellent! Then we come down, bring the dumbbell down. Whew! My name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister and that is how you perform a pull-up with a dumbbell.
