Pull and Dip Variations at Home
I hope you're all doing as well as can be expected during these interesting times. Eat well, move your body, stay positive, and support each other - these are the best things we can do outside of the governments regulations!
For many of us, exercise is a tonic - it helps elevate our mood, distract us from stressors, and improves our healthy state in many ways. That's why we're doing our best to provide you all with at home options for training.
Our Zoom sessions have been really fun and are growing a bit as we go. If you need more info about our online programming, send us an email!
One of the harder groups of movements to get done at home are pulling exercises. If you have a pull up bar you're set for vertical pulls but maybe not for horizontal pulls. If you don't have a pullup bar, you'll need a sub for both!
Pulling movements offset pushing by helping to balance the musculature. All push is a recipe for sore shoulders and an unbalanced physique.
In the video below, I give some demos of both dips (featured in tomorrows online wod) and row/pullup options with minimal equipment. If you have a towel, band, and chairs, you're pretty much good to go!
Keep fit and have fun!
