How to get your first pull up.
-Pull up progression.
The first step of learning the pull up is being able to hold yourself for atleast 30 seconds. Once you feel comfortable you can move on to the next progression.
2-NEGATIVE PULL UPS
In the negative pull up you should jump on to the bar and hold yourself with bent arms and chin over the bar as long as you can. Once you feel like you cant hold it anymore slowly but having control lower yourself down. You should be able to do atleast 10 of these and hold each for 20 seconds if you want the next exercise to be as little challenging as possible.
3-RESISTANCE BAND PULL UP
In this exercise you will need a band. If you dont have one they are cheap online. You should choose the weight yourself. If your really struggling I would suggest a 30 or 20 kg once. If your confortable you should get a 5 or 10 kg one. In this exercise you step on the band and do as many pull ups as you can. Once you feel confortable you should move on.
I think One the hardest things in life is to find good people who have got good morals & know how to treat other people properly, it’s even harder to find a girlfriend or boyfriend who’s a good person & your compatible with. -
My Old pal who’s a few years older than me told me years ago that if you ever finds a good woman make sure you treat her right & don’t take her for granted coz of her kindness but the most important thing is do not f#*k it up coz you’ll be really gutted when she gone

The HeSPU is an awesome move to challenge your body control while building your strength for more advanced moves like Handstand Push Ups (HSPU). There’s a great deal of balance, strength, and technique involved to accomplish this. -
Now, to build strength for this, we want to find a pressing movement that mimics the HSPU. To build the strength, I much prefer the Inverted Press. If done correctly, the Inverted Press can get your feet to literally float while not worrying as much about balance and more about strength. -
The biggest issue I see with people working up to HeSPU is that they try to rush to the next “progression”. You might feel that you need try a bunch of things to see progress but that’s not what you need for the HSPU. What you need is a consistent HS hold and a ton of pushing strength. The Inverted Press IMO is much harder (strength wise) and could be made infinitely harder by training more depth, leaning further forward, and bringing your feet closer to your hands. If you can HS and build enough strength, it’s only a matter of time. -
Here’s a little story about my buddy Justin @j_cas_ At one point he was able to Military Press his BW for 10 reps. With no bodyweight training prior to his HSPU attempts, literally learned to HS and HSPU in a few weeks by training shoulder stands and grinding a press out. He’d lose balance for sure (bc HSPU is harder due to balance/technique) but in a couple weeks learned to grip the Parallettes just by refusal to fall. Point of the story: Build enough strength, and skill training becomes much easier. -
