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.
