Recently STACK uploaded a new video to their blog showcasing Paul Rabil demonstrating the proper technique for pull-ups. STACK is the nation’s leading producer and distributor of performance, training and lifestyle content for active sports participants.
Performing exercises that target the entire upper body—not just the chest—sets true athletes apart from those concerned with just looking good. If your muscle group has a strength deficiency, you may be sabotaging the chance to execute a skill to your full potential. This exercise primarily targets your lats; however, other back, shoulder and arm muscles are also activated during the body’s ascent and descent. Furthermore, your shoulder stabilizers and core are engaged to keep the body steady during the movement.
