Exercise of the Month:

Weighted Pull-Ups

Weighted pull-ups are a strength-training exercise in where weights are worn while performing a standard bodyweight pull-up. A weight belt or weighted vest supplies the added weight during the exercise, and this additional weight helps you build even more muscle during your pull-up workout. Weighted pull-ups are a great exercise for increasing upper-body strength.

* If you do not have access to a weight belt or weighted vest, you can perform weighted pull-ups using resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, a barbell, or a dip belt outfitted with barbell plates.

Get Creative!

3 Benefits of Weighted Pull-Ups

Weighted pull-ups improve core strength. When performed properly, weighted pull-ups offer added intensity to activated core muscles.

Weighted pull-ups can help you achieve defined back muscles. Weighted pull-ups intensify the activation of your back muscles—such as your rhomboids and trapezius muscles—giving your back muscles more definition.

Weighted pull-ups are a great exercise for a variety of athletes. The range of motion and grip strength required for weighted pull-ups can help improve the performance of rock climbers, gymnasts, and bodybuilders training for weightlifting.
