    Great article! No doubt the pull-up will yield amazing upper body strength. It has helped my swimming immensely. I add pushups and it helped me to assist myself in a s***storm of trouble in the water. Grip goes 1st on a pull-up. Improve the grip, become a beast on the bar.

      Thanks for the feedback, Frank! Yes, this principle demonstrates how grip strength will enhance your strength pulling yourself up with the bar and I’ve noticed it also aids in other lifts that we might not relate to it like the barbell back squat I posted about in the article. Surprisingly I’ve noticed that grip strength has a much bigger impact on that than most would think.
