This is no secret or magic trick, increasing your pull ups isn’t as difficult as many people believe it is. The reason why many people struggle is because they’re training and doing the wrong things. This technique has been proven to work and I have used it myself and with my clients to increase their pull ups, its called “grease the groove (GTG)”.
The majority of the fitness industry is all about H.I.I.T , cardio, bodybuilding or training until you puke. I’m not a fan of this, not because there’s anything wrong with these types of training but because this is all we’re exposed too. There’s so many different ways to train and your training should always match your goals. The goal I’m covering here is increasing the number of pull ups you can complete consecutively, so those styles I mentioned wont work!
Another method I have experienced myself to be ineffective (takes to long) is the general 3 sets of 5–10 reps. With this method your attempting to increase the number of reps you do each week, 3x5, 3x6, 3x7, etc. What normally happens is you can do the 1st set fine but in the 2nd and 3rd set the reps have a big drop off and fast! Eventually people hit a plateau and get stuck around the same number of reps which leads to frustration.
