Max-Reps: Pull Ups
Quickly measure and calculate your endurance
The Pull Up is an athletic movement that requires significant upper body strength. Progress is measured by increases in repetitions. Please keep in mind that even a single Pull Up requires a substantial amount of strength and is therefore considered to be a relatively advanced movement, particularly for women or above a certain age. A large proportion of the population can’t perform a single Pull Up
Max-Reps: Pull Ups Protocol
Evaluate the ability of the upper posterior chain muscle groups to sustain repeated contractions against body weight resistance for an extended period of time or until failure.
A horizontal bar should be mounted out of the participants reach if their upper arms extended over head. They begin by hanging from bar with arms fully extended and hands positioned slightly wider than shoulders and pronated. Instruct the participant to vertically pull their body straight upward until their chin is above the bar. To return to down position, the participant should lower their body down until arms are fully extended. The test is stopped if the he or she can not get their chin above the bar
