Auxiliary Exercises for Pull-Up Volume

Auxiliary Exercises for Pull-Up Volume

 

Chances are, if you have gotten your clients to that first, seemingly mythical pull-up, the next thing they are going to be concentrating on is 2 pull-ups, and then 3 pull ups, etc. They will want to raise the volume of repetitions almost immediately, and this will pose a problem.

How do you increase the amount of pull-ups you see your clients doing? The simple answer would be volume work. However, anyone who has been training for a while understands that this is simply not the answer.

More volume on the movement itself will not necessarily be the thing to get your clients a higher rep count.

Instead, what you can do is auxiliary work to build up the stabilizer muscles used in the movement itself. This will help with the pull and the volume count.

Specifically for the pull up, one thing you can check into is this double kettlebell swing movement. Enjoy!
