Chest to Bar Pull-up Stamina Exercise Improvement Program

Range of Motion’s Exercise Improvement Programs have been developed to assist in improving the ability to complete the movements that people most commonly struggle with. They are designed to be cycled through over time, with each session running for only five minutes. This allows them to be completed in addition to (not instead of) your regular programming.

  • Session 1: TEST: Max unbroken chest to bar pull-ups (two minute cap).
  • Session 2: Complete as many unbroken sets of ‘x’ chest to bar pull-ups in five minutes. Choose a number that will challenge you but still allow high volume.
  • Session 3: Max unbroken chest to bar pull-ups (60s cap). Rest 60s. Three rounds.
  • Session 4: ‘x’ chest to bar pull-ups every 15 seconds for five minutes. Choose a number that will challenge you.
  • Session 5: Every minute for five rounds complete ‘x’ chest to bar pull-ups. Choose a number that will challenge you.
  • Session 6: In five minutes, progress as far through an unbroken chest to bar pull-up ladder as possible. That is, one chest to bar pull-up pull-up, two unbroken, three unbroken etc. No extra kip between reps.
