The Negative Pull-Up: Benefits, Technique, and How to Use in Your Workouts

How to Do A Negative Pull-up

Benefits, Technique, How to Use in Your Workouts

The negative pull-up is an eccentric movement that is extremely effective at teaching you the correct muscle engagement and form to do a PROPER pull-up. Unlike a band-assisted pull-up the negative pull-up still requires you to correctly engage abs, posterior chain, and legs.

Watch this video to learn the benefits, the technique, and my recommendations on how to incorporate the negative pull-up into your workout routine. The negative pull-up is especially effective because it is an eccentric motion that allows your body to do more than if you were to just do normal pull-ups.

Using negative pull-ups helps you get stronger more quickly, practice perfect pull-up form with better upper-back and shoulder engagement (less arms), and prevent injury in your shoulders. Pulling exercises are especially important for yoga practitioners to balance the pushing-dominant nature of yoga.
