Video: Two Pull-up Variations for Strength & Power

The pull-up is the most basic exercise for climbers—the problem is, once you can do 15 pull-ups the exercise loses its effectiveness to develop maximum strength (although high-rep pull-up training will build endurance). The solution is…weighted pull-ups and the “power pull-up”, which I demonstrate in this video.

Do a few sets of these two exercises three days per week and you will get much stronger! (Of course, there are many other useful exercises you can employ…but begin with these two and check back for future videos to learn many others!) As a bonus: I describe how advance climbers to dovetail these two exercises into a highly effective training “complex”.
