Pullups: The Ultimate Test of Relative Body Strength

As you may or may not know, pullups are one of the best workouts that is not only convenient but yields amazing benefits.

Below are a list of the many benefits of doing pullups:

Benefit #1: Convenience

Pullups are one of the most convenient exercises around and can be done almost anywhere.  All you really need is a bar and your body.

Benefit #2: Compound Upper-body Exercise

Compound exercises target multiple muscle groups.  There is no other excise that will make your upper body grow quite like pullups. Specifically, pullups do a great job of targeting the back and biceps. If you want a V-taper physique, pullups are a must!

Benefit #3: Easily Increase Intensity

Regularly increasing the intensity of your workouts is one of the secrets to building muscle. You can boost the intensity of your back workout simply by strapping a weight plate to your waist or hanging a kettle bell or dumbbell from your feet.

Benefit #4: Many Variations

There are so many variations to pull ups.  The great thing is that one variation doesn’t require any additional equipment than another variation. All you’ve got to do is change up your grip.  The overhand pullup is the best variation for getting your lats to grow nice and wide.  Other variations are grip pullups and reverse grip pullups or chinups place more emphasis on the biceps.

Benefit #5: Grip Strength

Pullups are the perfect exercise for strengthening your grip.

Benefit #6: Fat Loss

Pullups will get your heart rate up and really kick your butt. If you want to boost the fat loss effects of pullups, decrease the time in-between sets or super-set your pullups with another exercise.

GHD Hip & Back Extension

The best thing about CrossFit is that i.t is a strength and conditioning program that creates a wide variety of functional exercises.  The back extension strengthens the posterior chain muscles including the glutes, hamstrings and lower back.  The hip extension builds the basic muscular control strength needed to making a neutral-spine position while the hip is in motion.

If you do not have a Roman chair or a back extension machine, Good Mornings and Supermans are appropriate substitutions, according to CrossFit.com.

Good Mornings Tutorial: 

Superman Tutorial:

In a Back extension, only the back is extending, the hips are trapped and neutral.

In a Hip extension, the back stays rigid and flat while just the hips rotate.

There is also something called a Hip/Back Extension that is a combination of both.

Check out the videos below to learn the proper forms for both exercises:
