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
