This simple yet powerful pull-up variation method was a gem when there was little to no time for gym. It’s very effective to build a massive back or arms.
I heard a first time about this method of an old MMA friend of mine who had done wrestling his whole life. He had a massive back and V-taper. My jaw dropped when I saw him first time without shirt. He was training like beast.
We used to talk a lot about training with him. At that time I had just started going to gym, and he gave me a great tips. One was this pull-up method.
He was a level of pro-athletics on his condition, but still said this is very hardcore method that get his arms and lats strained for days after.
So the method is simple:
Aim to do 100 pull-ups in about 10 minutes.
10 pull-ups, then one minute rest and repeat 10 times.
If you can do the full 100 you are a very tough guy. I’ve never get there by myself. But the point is to do as many pull-ups as you can 10x.
You can do first 10. Then rest a minute. Then push your limits again and do 8 if you can’t get the full 10. And 5 after the next minute. And so on.
You don’t even need to get the full 10 pull-ups on the first set. You can simply do a 3 if that’s the max you can do and rest a minute, then do again 3 or 2.
By doing this method once a week will have a great impact on your lats and acquiring the sexy V-taper.
If you want to go on beast mode, do this as the first method on the gym and then do the other back exercises you have on your routine.
Just wanted to share this quick and powerful training method. If you have no time to go for gym, you can still build a huge back at home with this routine.
If you have no pull-up bar at home, I highly recommend to get one. It’s very easy to setup. Takes about 5 minutes and you are ready to go for workout. The one I have in video is an old one, the newer I have is far better. You can can do with it all kinds of variations of pull-ups and hit every small muscle group on your lats to build a huge back and wide shoulders. And sexy V-taper of course.
