Pull ups are one of the most functional bodyweight exercises you can do.
We know that you want to be able to do them (or do more of them!), which is why we’re super excited to bring you the Fall Pull Up Challenge!
As cool as pull ups and chin ups are, they can also be quite intimidating. We can’t tell you how many people, and especially women, we have met who are convinced that they can never do a pull up. Throughout the month of October, we’re here to break this myth. You absolutely can do a pull up, no matter what you’ve been told or what you may have always believed. It just takes a lot of consistent work!
This 4-week Fall Pull Up Challenge is meant for beginner and intermediate athletes to help you:
1. Build strength to work towards your first pull up or chin up
2. Break past plateaus if you can already do one or a few pull ups
Get ready to work hard and have fun!
Note: This is not a specific training program. If you’re already very close to doing a pull up or a chin up or you can already do a few and you want to take your training to the next level, check out our Pull Up Mastery program instead or to do along with the challenge.
No matter where you are at in your pull up journey, you are of course welcome to take this challenge and use it as a great way to strengthen your upper body and core!
