Muscle Group: Back

Side-to-side Pull-Ups are a shock training exercise. Your body will have to adapt to an extremely different movement than it is used to. One of the benefits is that it stresses both sides of your back equally. You will be amazed by the growth you see using this variation of the pull-up. It will widen your upper back like never before!

  1. Position yourself into a wide-grip pull-up position.
  2. This exercise can be performed on an assisted pull up machine if you need one to reduce the load.
  3. Instead of pulling yourself straight up, pull toward one hand at a time. You might even want to touch your chin against each hand as you pull up to ensure full range of motion.
