A classic and basic part of any strength and fitness program... the pullup. These videos take you from not being able to do one single pullup to advanced variations. Pullups strengthan many parts of our upper body, and in capoeira play an important role in many movements when we are on our hands. For example, pullups train your back muscles which are important for maintaining stability in a bananeira (handstand).
Remember patience and gradual progress are your friends when trying to build the kind of strength we use in capoeira. Imagine where you will be in not too long with the conditioning we do at the end of class! Woohooo!
Here's what our Navy SEALS have to say about pullups and variations. Pretty cool.
