Yes it is for beginners, but only if you start negative. The technique makes it applicable for beginner-training.

Feb 24, 2016 10:50 AM: This is supposedly Intermediate program, but I don't quite understand 50 pullups in 1 set?? Very confused here, is this a typo, I don't think I've ever known anyone with any strength/endurance level to do 50 pull ups.

Please explain or correct.

Thank you.

Jun 21, 2014 7:57 AM: Are pull ups more challenging, than chin ups? Or, the opposite? Can anyone give tips on which one or both to do during upper body day? Do they work the same muscle groups?

May 5, 2014 6:23 PM: Great for your lats. I see a lot of people talking about it working your biceps more. If you use a closer grip it works more of your biceps. Use a wider grip and you'll work more of your back. I do 4 sets of 10 reps when I work back. They've gotten much easier and at work we have a pull up bar,...+See More

Dec 12, 2013 12:38 PM: I'm having trouble 'activating', or concentrating on my lats. It seems like I can't use them consciously. So when I do this exercise I end up working out my biceps... Are there any tips for solving this problem?

Aug 29, 2013 8:37 PM: This is a good exercise for the lats, no doubt. It's however, getting to easy for me haha. I try to make it more difficult by controlling the negative to really focus on the lats. Might add weight as well soon. Funny thing is though, I remember back in the day when it was either 2 or 3rd grade in PE...+See More

Apr 9, 2013 4:18 PM: A staple for any back routine. Start off your back routine with this exercise and eventually when you have built up the necessary strength, use a dip belt with added weight plates. Remember to arch your back and stick your chest up throughout the motion to fully work your back!
