A Pull Up Bar is ideal for building upper body muscle, which is one of the most popular improvements that most men want to make to their body. There are a number of ways of achieving this. But if you don’t wish to take up a gym membership, or don’t even have the time to go to the gym on a regular basis, then it gets difficult and just another barrier to stopping you achieving the body you wish for. If you want to embark on a process of building upper body muscles, one of the most important factors is no matter which type of routine you actually choose, you must do it on a regular basis, and this is where most people fail for a whole number of reasons.
You will find that pull-ups and chin ups are part of a large number of athletes regular exercise regimes and this is because a large number of sports require the athlete to push and pull. Upper body strength is good to have generally, just as functional strength, to be able to do many things on a daily basis easier and quicker.
The real beauty of the iron gym pull up bar is that it is small and compact and can easily be stored under the bed or in a cupboard yet made ready for instant use in just a few seconds. This means that not only can you exercise at home but also if you only have, say, 15 or 20 minutes to spare at some point in the day you can quickly get into exercise mode and when you have finished the equipment just stores away under the bed. Job done.
It’s specifically designed to work by attaching onto the door frame but in such a way that no damage is caused to any wood or plaster – so it really is just a matter of grabbing the Pull Up Bar, hooking up to the doorway, and away you go with your exercises. Another of the benefits is that small bursts of regular exercises are actually much more effective than one long session in a gym.
Chin Ups, I can hear you groaning already, but you have to admit that they are very effective and will quickly build big biceps and laterals and they also incorporate a lot of other muscles including, to a lesser degree, Abs, as you do this exercise.
The best way to do them is to grab the bar about shoulder width with your palms facing towards you and then lift as far as you possibly can and then hold that position for a few seconds and then lower yourself in a controlled way to as low as you can possibly go. This should be done in a smooth and even action and repeated as many times as you can, obviously you will find that you’ll be able to do more and more repetitions as your exercise regime continues.
Because this type of exercise is harder to do, drains you quicker and is much more tiring you will find a lot of guys in a gym just concentrate on push type exercises and miss out on more effective pull up types. The Pull Up Bar can be used for sit ups, push ups and dips too, although for the latter, the bar isn’t that effective.
In just minutes a day, you will build lean muscle and get ripped.
