My goal is 4 unassisted pull-ups. This was 4 with assistance of 20lbs by the machine. If I weighed 20 lbs less then I'd be there fam! Jk I don't want to weigh 20 lbs less. I'm working on the lat strength 2x a week and practicing daily, so I know I'll get there, but damn they are hard! #slap45days1 #slapnutrition #pullups #latstrength #spreadyourwings #leanback #ilikethelookofbackmuscles #fitmom #fitnessmotivation #goals #backgains #girlswholift #fueledbyslapaminos

Single arm low cable row- 10 reps on each arm. Gain #latstrength for proper positioning in the saddle #equestrianfitness

Finally stringing my butterflies in sets of 10! #crossfitter #strongmoms #latstrength #colossalcrossfit

No short cuts. No quick fixes. Just hard work

Working on grip strength hanging on the bar. Starting with overhand, going to underhand, then switching to eagle with internal rotation at the shoulder joint.

Why to have a chin up bar at home? Not for chin ups only, actually mostly to hang. Some control abdominal work, stretch my rhomboid , lats, QL ... you name it...length my spine ... kind of a meditation relaxation ❀️🎢 and also strength after it all ☺️ #chinupbar #bodystretch #meditation #relaxation #hanging #shoulderstrength #gripstrength #forearmstrength #latstrength #holistictraineroz #stephaniepettersen #yamba

Derek Davis modelling the new pulley system!
This is an excellent way to build up the pulling strength in your lats, for all your gymnastics and stabilizing overhead lifts.

3-4 sets of 8-12 reps is all you need πŸ’ͺ🏻

Working on that last activation and strength. I am also trying to focus on not making my neck muscles so damn tense. #gopt #latactivation #latstrength #betterclimber #betterswimmer #jetcitycrossfit

Just playing around on the pull up bar after some training this past weekend. I always like throwing in some #pullup variation to exert more stress and tension on the lats.

Additionally good lat strength will also enhance other movements such as #kettlebell snatches and deadlifts...and even push related movement such as the bench press.
If you want to increase your performance then focus building strong lats. It's a win/win decision.

Brilliant exercise here for strength development and flexibility of the lats. Engages the core and adopts the hinge position required in posture.
You’ll need good Lats for power and speed and being able to get the club to the top of the backswing. ➑️ Keep arms locked out and pull the bar to the top of the thigh - lift the chest and squeeze under the armpits. ➑️ Keeping the arms straight slowly return to the start stretching on your way up. ➑️ Maintain posture throughout and repeat for 15 reps πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻 #golffit #golffitness #golfworkout #lats #latstrength #speed #power #backswing #golfworkout #flexibility #posteriorchain #posture #instagolf #swingfaster #hitfurther

Sending one of my YMCA clients a couple of descriptive images and a video of the proper technique on the Machine Seated Row ⚠️ The most common compensation is the shoulders "hiking up" as the client pulls. It takes about 6 to 8 sessions for new trainees to learn the proper pattern of pulling the shoulder blades together and downward ⏩ I use upper back exercises such as these together with hip (glute) strengthening exercises whenever I develop programs to decrease lower back pain πŸ”΄

Did somebody order up a heavy farmer's walk? πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻 #WarriorRoom #CoreStrength #LatStrength #GripStrength #GetSome

The single arm kettlebell row progression. The "cranking the lawnmower" motion stretches the lats and strengthens it through a full ROM allowing for greater shoulder stability.
This exercise will not only enhance your ability to pull and perform the almighty #pullup, but it will also set you up for greater #pressing as well.
Greater shoulder back strength equals greater shoulder stability. Greater shoulder stability equals greater pushing and greater pulling.

Ever wondered why the side stretch is such a hard move?
As humans, we mostly move in #straightlines - mostly forwards and backwards (known as the sagittal plane). E.g. We sit on a chair with our legs in front of us, walk forwards not sideways, and when we exercise most of us walk, run, get on bikes, cross trainers or rowing machines...all forwards and backwards straight line movement. This tightens up some key muscle groups such as our hip flexors, our lower back, our inner thighs/adductors in the lower body, and our posterior neck muscles, chest, anterior shoulders and upper abs in the upper body.
πŸ’₯Try this side opener DAILY for 10 days, holding for 45 seconds each side to pull yourself into an open sideways posture. This will help you alleviate the tightness in these poor muscles. ☝️Aim for your chest to be open towards the wall in front and if you can, open it towards the ceiling (as I fail to do here! 😬)
☝️Place the elbow on the knee to help pull your chest open can help you extend this move.
☝️if legs struggle to be straight, bend the legs at first as you do this. If legs can be straight, push the knees down into the floor to extend the inner thigh stretch...it'll feel lovely
☝️DON'T be disheartened- little and often on this one is the πŸ”‘ πŸ™Žβ€β™‚οΈGreat for all of these sports: πŸšΆπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸŒοΈβ€β™€οΈπŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸš£β€β™€οΈπŸ‡πŸš΅

#BRF strength student, Muay Thai/MMA fighter Jeremy making the gains with pull ups.
Latissimus Dorsi... Latissimus Dorsi--The word "latissimus" Latin means "broadest." The word "dorsum" latin means back. Dorsi is the plural form. So latissimus dorsi is the broadest muscle of the back.

Proper lat engagement will make you stronger in most any major lift including benching, squatting, and deadlifting. Make your lats stronger and learn how to activate them in order to leverage them to your benefit.

The function of the muscle is for shoulder flexion, extension, adduction, and internal rotation of the shoulder. In my opinion it's a powerhouse and is part of the framework on a sturdy foundation for building a super strong body.

So crush that bar and pull son! What are you doing to strengthen your lats today? #latstrength #noilshere #pullupexercises #backstrength #pullups #fitness #fitfam #atlantafitness #atlantastrengthandconditioning

Slow motion but not slow motion 😳😳😳😳 #muscleup #ringmuscleup #strictmuscleup #strictisking #pullingpower #latstrength #kakstrong

The #pullup is one of the toughest upper body movements, yet it should be as common as walking.
The lats are the broadest muscles in the back and are responsible for tremendous strength gains. This is the very reason we should be working on the pull up.

Put it in reverse with this #dailymusclemorsel.

Rows are a staple for any powerlifter, bodybuilder, or athlete looking to improve their bench press and increase upper body strength. Unfortunately many lifters have a difficult time transferring their lat strength and rowing mechanics to the actual bench press. However, as any powerlifter can tell you one of the most important cues on the bench press is to essentially use your back to row the weight into position. This produces maximal co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscle groups during the eccentric phase.
With this in mind it’s essential to transfer lat activation and proper rowing mechanics to the eccentric phase of the bench press. The more specifically we can customize a row to mimic the bench press, the better the transfer. With this in mind here are several variations of a rowing movement that I consider to be one of, if not the perfect rowing exercise to improve bench press technique and strength. I refer to it as the Reverse Inverted Row or Reverse Bench Press with bands as it provides the exact same bar path yet precise antagonistic activation patterns as the bench press. Also big shoutout to legendary world-famous strength coaches Josh Bryant @jailhousestrong and Alex Babin @alexbabin_ I highly recommend following them ASAP as they are some of the best in the business.

I am so excited that I've now graduated to the highest level of resistance band, doing most of my PT at home, and only having to go in for treatment once a week for 3 more weeks! Over the past two years, I've struggled with a degenerative disc, SI Joint Dysfunction and one of my hip bones tilted out of place. I even lost the ability to walk a couple of times. I feel so happy to have found the most amazing PT team here in LA to figure out the problem and get my body on the right track! β€πŸ‘ #pregnancyishardonyourbody! #dryneedling #stimandheat #corestrength #legstrength #latstrength

Check out James' progress on toes to bar just in one hour! The left video is one of his old toes to bar, and the right is a video of the new and improved toes to bar. Look at that lat strength! Pushing so far away from the bar!! Today James linked his toes to bar (5 at a time) for the first time and he did it in the wod! (Quite a surprisingly brutal wod too, AMRAP 18, 5 ttb, 10 power cleans, 15 box jumps). Progress every day!! Way to go James!

Slow but steady progression in the chins/pull-up departement.
The pace is around +1 kg's per week. I do 5x5, where the two first are pull-ups.

The #oddlift #bentpress this is ridiculously hard. 65 pounds was challenging. Was looking through #oldschool #strongman stuff and wanted to play with this. Extremely effective for showing you how weak you are. I tried these with a dumbbell first.

No short cuts. No quick fixes. Just hard work

Hurcules hoist WAS the hardest obstacle for me! Until I found out you don't need brute strength to complete it. For you low body weight OCR athletes incorporate lat pull downs BUT DON't USE THAT LEG ASSIST!! This forces your core into the movement to help you resist that heavy weight pulling against you. BTW that's my second set of 9 at 130lbs I'm roughly 140 😎 #fitlife #ocr #lowbodyfat #technique #spartanready #latstrength #gripstrength #ninjawarrior #getfit #liveyourdream #tuesdayliftday #1stform #ocrwc #ocrmedia #beetelite #barfreakz thanks @toomuchfitness_steedley the workout!!

Day Five is all about grip strength! Grip strength is an important factor when it comes to being able to do a pull-up or chin-up because you have to actually able to hold onto the bar to do one, right?! #

There are plenty of ways to work your grip. Just simply hanging from the bar for time is one way - make sure the lats are engaged and shoulders are packed. My favorite way though is carries. Farmer carries are great for grip strength AND your core. If you don't have farmer handles, no problem. Pick up some heavy kettlebells. Make sure to keep the shoulders packed and maintain good posture standing tall the entire time. Walk for distance or time.

#

No kettlebells either? No problem. Grab plates -the heaviest you can hold and do a "plate pinch". Pinch the edge of the plate with your fingers for as long as you can. Make sure to pinch the lip of the plate, not below it - no cheating! This also works great with dumbbells, (what's called a dumbbell head carry). Grab the head of the dumbbell and pinch with your fingers.
#

Aim to increase distance, time or weight every week. Got questions? Email me at Veronica.mcnelis@gmail.com
