Almost everyone should be familiar with the pull up. It’s considered one of the best overall exercises for developing the upper back and creating that desired V-shaped upper body. The great thing about the pull up too is that it’s also one of the best exercises for putting quality size onto your biceps.
So how do you perform pull ups at home? Luckily these days it’s easy to set up a safe way to do pull ups at home. The key here is safety. Don’t be the guy that tried to do pull ups in his bedroom using his bed, a ladder and an open door? Wait what? No I’m not kidding!
Ouch! Ok so now that you know how to not do pull ups at home lets look at some of the safe options we have to set up our very own pull up station.
