Pull-Ups: Get Your Feet Off the Floor

Feel the strain in your arms as they bear your whole body weight. Feel yourself being raised from the ground by your own muscle strength, again and again. If feeling creative, a whole array of exercises can be performed, exploring several muscle groups.

Feeling tired after a short while pumping? It only gets worse if your hands are taped to the bar and you cannot let go, if it is no longer up to you whether it has been enough or not, if failure to perform correctly is punished hard, if you can't afford to stop and pain is generously added somewhere else on your sweating moving body to help you forget the pain in your arms and focus on what really matters: working out as told.
