Avoid: Improper Pull-Ups

Anderson says that pull-ups are probably one of the all-time best exercises you can do for overall upper body strength, but that he sees them performed improperly way too often. “For instance, many people are not quite strong enough to do a proper pull-up,” he says. “I give them full credit for trying, but if you are barely going through any range of motion or swinging so violently in order to get yourself up to the bar there may be a better alternative until you build up your strength.”
