One Arm Pull Up

If you consider yourself an athlete, one of the biggest challenges that you can give yourself is a one armed pull up. This is one of the most difficult exercises for any athlete to master and if you want to be proud of your he-man status, you will definitely want to learn how to do one of these on the Stud Bar. Though the motions of a one armed pull up looks easy enough, in this case, looks can be very deceiving. However, it is possible and if you want to be the envy of your friends thanks to your strength, step by step directions for this, are below:

Make Sure You are Ready

If you don’t use a pull up bar, like the Stud Bar, on a regular basis, odds are, you will not be able to do a one armed pull up if you can even do a pull up at all. Pull ups with both arms are hard enough for many people, so you can surely imagine how difficult a one armed  pull up would be.

In order to do this feat, you will likely need to train. In order to train, you will need to make sure that you have a high quality pull up bar, like the Stud Bar, and some time on your hands. When you start to train, you should do as many pull ups as you can, making your goal 100 pull ups each day on the Stud Bar. Though this may seem unattainable, if you are persistent, within a few months you should easily be able to reach that goal.

Once You Meet Your First Goal, Move on to the Next One

Once you have hit your 100 pull up a day goal on the Stud Bar, it is time to give yourself another challenge. Instead of doing 100 pull ups on a pull up bar, start adding weight and lowering reps. For example, you may want to try a 25 pound ankle weight but only do 50 reps. As a general rule of thumb, most people won’t be able to do a one armed pull up until they can do two armed pull ups with 100 pounds of weight, in addition to their own. Again, don’t let this statistic frighten you, you can do it if you stay persistent.

In the midst of all of this training, you should also mix it up by adding gorilla hangs, where you simply hold on to the bar with one arm and hang for as long as you can. This will help to strengthen your grip and help to make sure your body is used to the feeling of hanging with one arm.

Finally, once you have that all together, you can start trying to pull yourself up. If you keep up with your training, there is really no reason that you cannot do this extremely difficult, but very rewarding feat on the Stud Bar.
