From the VAULT /// Proper Spinal Alignment for the Pull Up

Share This Post

This week on the blog, Dr. Claudia Chaloner is joined by Nicole Zapoli to talk about proper spinal positioning for the pull up! Training the pull up in all its many variations is a super effective way for building full body strength, especially throughout the lats, trunk/core, shoulder girdle, grip, and so much more!

Here are a few coaching and training tips:

  • Wrap your thumbs 
  • Pull your shoulders down and away from your ears
  • Keep your lats and shoulder girdle activated
  • Hold your tight hollow body position all the way through
  • Aim for full ROM every rep

Modify with ring rows or inverted rows. Walk your feet back as much as needed. Body position stays the same no matter what variation you do.
