Went out with a bunch of friends tonight. The weather's been scorching so we decided to have dinner by the lake which also happened to have a monkey bar. I haven't been working out for some time. Bronchitis the culprit this time. So I stayed away from weights and focused on feeling 'normal' again.
But the monkey bar beckoned me. So I went and did a few pull-ups which left my friends - two of them 7 years my junior, one of them a regular gym-goer very impressed. They couldn't do a single pull-up. Not just yet, anyway. I'm sure if they knew the right technique they could also do pull-ups in no time.
But heck. It sure felt good trumping people much younger than me. Yes, this old lass still has it. Anyway, I learnt how to do pull-ups by watching the video below. Start from inverted rows. From there, you can progress to chin-ups and pull-ups pretty quickly, I reckon. Good luck!
