Hey there, my name is Jay Jones, Celebrity Peak Performance and today, I'm going to demonstrate how you can add external weight to dips, pull-ups and push-ups. Now, whenever you get to the point where you feel like your body weight is just not enough to push you to that muscle building level that you want to achieve, then you can always add external weight to dips, push-ups and pull-ups. So, since I'm here at the pull-up bar, I'm going to demonstrate what that looks like for your pull-ups, but you can add an external weight to any of the three mentioned. Now, I'm going to start with a nine-pound medicine ball and what I'm all I'm going to do is I'm going to stick it right between my knees and I'm going to squeeze, squeeze the ball down, so I'm working my thighs and I;m working my upper body at the same time. So, then I'm in a pull-up position, cross my legs, down and up. Down and up. Down and up as we continue to build. Now, we're maximizing not only our upper body, but we're also building our lower body simultaneously. My name is Jay Jones, Peak Performance Coach and Fitness Minister and that is how you add external weight to help enhance your pull-ups, push-ups or dips.
