Strict pull ups are one movement that everyone has as a goal at some point in their CrossFit career. And then once you have one, it’s like tattoos, you need more. And for good reason. The more strict pull ups you have, the more kipping you’ll have. The more strict pull ups you have, the more muscle ups you’ll have. The more strict pull ups you have, the more money you’ll have. Ok fine. I made that last one up, but pull ups are a great test of upper body strength and are used as barriers to entry across many professions. The problem with strict pull ups is that you can’t finesse them, you have to work at them. And work at them hard! The program at the link below will get you results, but it’s not for the faint of heart. It requires dedication, consistency and some tolerance for pain. And it will work if you don’t have your first strict pull up yet. Just substitute assisted pull ups or ring rows for strict and watch your numbers grow. So if you’re serious about seeing gains in that upper body pulling, then dive right in.
