Rich doing 24kg weighted pull ups!

 

Not bad eh? This is my client Rich doing 24kg weighted pull ups! Thats and extra 4 stone to his body weight of around 80kg (12 stone 6 pounds). So that makes him 104kg (16 stone 3 pounds)! 

Most people find it hard to do a pull up let alone adding additional weight. Rich had been training hard with me during his 90 day challenge which ends on the 24th of July. Results photos will be posted then. He has been sticking to his diet set by me, been training between 3-5 times a week with myself and has shown great dedication and desire to truly change his physique for the better. His weighted pull ups are a testimony to how hard he has been training and how hard he continues to train. Adding additional weight when performing a pull up will help force the body to continue to build muscle, increase in muscular strength, bone density and reduce body fat. Pull ups are a great way to build serious strength, they are an excellent bodyweight exercise that incorporate a whole lot of muscles at the same time. This will give you real world strength. So when it comes to moving and lifting in a real situation you will be able to lift the weight in question or even lift your own bodyweight. When you compare weighted pull up strength to say a lat pull down on a machine, there is no comparison. Lat pull downs are useless, you are wasting your time and energy on something that will make you less functional and provide you will false strength and a lack of understanding on how to effectively use your body. As much as possible use your body as a weight, train with it, understand it and use it, do not lose it :).

Great work Rich keep it up.
