Widegrip Pullups

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Using a pullup apparatus, keep your thumbs at a wider distance than your outside shoulders with your thumbs toward the midline of your body, and your palms facing away from you.

2) Allow your shoulders to be extended as much as possible, and begin the motion by expanding your chest as much as possible while pulling upward.

3) The top of the movement should have your shoulders unable to move further backward, or your biceps to contract any further.

4) Come down in a controlled fashion and return to the start position, fully extended.

Any amount of movement with your legs or the use of your abs is undesirable.  The full extension and full contraction is most beneficial.  As always, if there is some cheat movement on your last rep, that is fine, just make sure that it isn’t every repetition.
