DOING A PULL UP -> WITH A TWIST

7 Feb

No, no, no…. Not that kind of twist!

And, no, you don’t have to have an amazingly strong body as the woman in the picture to do what I’m talking about.

And, no, this post really isn’t even about doing pull ups. Yes, below there are some excellent detailed instructions for learning to do a pull up but that’s just an extra for those who are interested in that. I’m just using the desire to do a pull up as an example. You can apply this “twist” to learning anything new.
