The Pullup Exercise Anatomy


The Pullup Exercise Anatomy

The Pullup Exercise Anatomy

Pullups are recognized as the king of the bodyweight exercises. And some will even argue that it’s the king of upper body exercise. Pullup is also an incredible back and core stabilizer.Targeting your lats is important because it stabilize the body for the bigger lift, so you can lift more on your deadlifts, squats, and on your bent rows.

Pullups are a great indicator of your body composition and where you at the moment. A lot of big (heavy) guys can struggle doing pullups compare to guys that are big but muscular can do the pullup with ease.

Pullups are also used by the United States Marine Corps, as a vital way to determine strength among service members. This is determined by the amount of good form reps that can be done, commonly 20 to 25 pull ups in a row is the standard of perfect score in most of the physical condition tests and the minimum value is 3 full pull ups. This test is usually a non-timed event.

Pull up bar is worth buying and installing in your house if you want to work on your upper body. Alternatively, you can go to the nearest playground and use a monkey bar there.

Extend your arms and take a wide, overhead grip on the pullup bar:
– Inhale and pull yourself upward until your eyes are above the level of the bar
– Exhale as you complete the movement

The Adductors

Scientific Keys
Using the Adductor Muscles in Dog Pose, Tadasana and Urdhva Hastasana

Get a feel for isolating the proximal adductor group first in Utkatasana and Navasana. Once you gain awareness of these muscles, you can use them to refine Dog Pose. Do this by visualizing drawing the upper inner thighs towards one another. This contracts the adductors longus and brevis and pectineus, which adduct, flex, and externally rotate the femurs. You may recall a tip for activating the tensor fascia lata from our blog post, “Strong Thigh Muscles Benefit People with Knee Osteoarthritis.” Co-activate the adductor group with the tensor fascia lata to stabilize the pelvis, flex the hips, and balance internal and external rotation of the femurs.
