The one arm pull up is, to put it simply, impressive. It represents an unusual kind of strength that seems to go beyond what a normal human can accomplish, and crosses into something animal. It's a goal that many people have, but few spend any real time on it because it's hard to know where to start. That difficulty stems from two main reasons: 1) Not many people know how to train for a one arm pull up or chin up, so there aren't a lot of resources out there to help someone who wants to learn the correct exercises. 2) The one arm pull up (and one arm pull up training) requires you to put a lot more strain on your joints and muscles than you would during normal exercise—in other words, if you don't know what you're doing, you can really hurt yourself. The trial-and-error approach to one arm pull up and chin up training can take a long time, and—if you hurt yourself—it can leave you worse off than you were when you started. This book is designed to be the practical resource you need to help you achieve your goal in a way that maximizes your results, and minimizes headaches.

Dear friend and FELLOW pull-up ENTHUSIAST, If there EVER was an exercise that lends itself to unending awe, speculation - and AMAZEMENT (at being performed RIGHT) - it is the mighty PULL-UP. If there EVER was an exercise that builds strength in your upper body to near LEGENDARY "King Kong" like levels - it is the ALMIGHTY pull-up. If there EVER, EVER was ONE exercise that you would want to MASTER - in all it's forms, shapes and guises - it is this - the PULL-UP! If you want gorilla like traps - and FOREARMS - and a mighty, rugged, MUSCULAR chest - and lat spread that looks like you'd need to turn around sideways to get into the average door - you need to get good - VERY good indeed - at ONE exercise - the PULL-UP! If there EVER was an exercise that built outrageous abdominal STRENGTH - insane "twelve pack like" definition - and got rid of fat SUPER QUICK - all over your upper body - it is well - I think you've guessed it. If there ever was, ... ah, but while I could write several tomes on the pull-up and still NOT be done, I think you get the drift.Pull-ups, my friend are not only the most complete ADVANCED upper body exercise there is - but they are also one of the misunderstood, badly performed (kipping - ugh!) and "awe inspiring" exercises out there. Every man wants to be able to bang out at least 10 pull-ups EFFORTLESSLY in letter perfect form, but lets face it. Most modern day "men" (I use quotes for a damned good reason) would do well to hang on to the chinning bar for any length of time - let alone with the right GRIP - and as for performing a pull-up - or half pull-up - or quarter? Well, my friend - the VAST majority of modern day "men" (again, I use quotes for a reason) would be unable to even muster up the strength to pull their saggy, bloated asses up even an inch or two (without straining a tricep or two - or more).And most modern day men that TRY to do pull-ups (as opposed to actually DO even half a REAL pull-up) remain sore for DAYS after their first attempt. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Yeah. I thought so....! Wouldnt YOU want to be lean and mean - a fighting MACHINE - like the soliders in the Marines and elite forces are around the world? Would you NOT want the ability to take punches to your midsection from PROFESSIONAL hitters - - and have them "bounce off ya" like they were nothing. As a friend of mine once told me, "I'd be wasting my time by hitting there!" Would you not want the twelve pack - and corrugated CORE - and extreme upper body "ape like strength" and definition that most "men" can only DREAM of? Of course you would. WHAT THIS TUTORIAL CONTAINS - The path breaking "Pull-ups from DUD to STUD - - within a matter of WEEKS" - - a course that truly HAS brought folks from "zero to hero" level at pull-ups - - in RECORD TIME. The "torch bearing" ADVANCED COURSE ON pull-ups - - Pull-ups from STUD to SUPER STUD - - that has turned previous fit folks into FREAKS of nature, my friend - with ape like upper body strength and "black smith like IRONMONGER style"grip that the average man can only dream of - and MARVEL at. And as if that wasn't enough, there is also a "FAQ" section on pull-ups - - which addresses ALL the most commonly asked questions that folks have on pull-ups. I guarantee you - you ain't gonna find a more complete compilation on FAQ's (in terms of pull-ups) ANYWHERE ELSE. In fact this alone probably justifies more than at least half the price of the course, if I were to be very frank and brutally honest with ya! Grab it now, my friend - it truly IS a "one of kind" tutorial out there - - and combined with the FAQ section, it truly IS the - BEST - I repeat - VERY BEST course out there on pull-ups - I challenge you to prove me otherwise! To your success, Rahul Mookerjee

If you’re reading this, chances are good you know what it feels like not to be able to do ONE single pull-up at this point in time. In fact, chances are that even hanging on to the pull-up bar for any length of time is an exercise in futility for you – and I can understand this predicament. The average Joe today can barely hold on to a chinning bar for more than a few seconds before having to let go, let alone pound out rep after perfect rep on the much feared/admired PULL-UP (or chin-up). If you're the guy that could barely pump out "one pull-up" in high school where the rest of the kids pumped 'em out AD INFINITUM, well, not to worry - THIS course will get you cranking 'em out IN NO TIME FLAT! But why just the average person, my friend?? Most gym goers these days are unable to pump out pull-ups in proper form and the right cadence. That guy with the “bulging” lats might be able to crank out heavy poundage’s on the lat pull-down machine, but position him at the pull-up station, and he’ll likely not even be able to do a single one. See that guy with the huge biceps repping out endless sets of dumbbell curls? Bring him over to the pull-up station, and chances are he won’t be able to hang onto the bar for any length of time, let alone pump out high reps. And that’s not good. Not good at all, because pull-ups are one of the best, if not THE best upper body exercises you can do, period. Along with the dip (another super exercise), the pull-up has often being referred to either as “the king of upper body exercises” or “the upper body equivalent of the squat” (which is an expression I prefer to reserve for the dip, but it can be used for pull-ups as well). Pull-ups are also a natural form of exercise - in fact, our bodies were MEANT to perform such exercises. Think about it for a minute - which is the animal in the wild that humans most "resemble" in terms of body structure? Apes - and what do apes (and monkeys) do all day long? Peform various types of pulling movements with their bodyweight - and just how STRONG is an ape? Well, the average gorilla is reputed to have the strength of EIGHT strong men, perhaps more when "aroused". It has been said that a chimpanzee is strong enough to kill a 1000+ kg crocodile with it's bare hands. And that's just off the top of my head - now, thats some SERIOUS strength there, doncha' think? Could the average 'bloated' bodybuilder with "bulging" muscles even come close?? Follow the way of the APE - order NOW - and get cracking on "dem pullups"! I look forward to hearing back about your pull-up MASTERY. Best, Rahul Mookerjee

One of the nation's elite strength and conditioning coaches presents a unique training program designed to help men achieve functional strength and muscular balance throughout their bodies For decades, the conventional measure of an individual's strength was the amount of weight he could bench press. Now, that measure is being challenged by expert trainers like Robert dos Remedios who argue that the variety of movement patterns used in functional training is the real key to getting bigger, stronger, and more powerful. In Men's Health Power Training, this acclaimed collegiate strength and conditioning coach describes in detail the methods he has used to develop hundreds of Division I scholarship athletes, including several current NFL players. The key features that make this book a standout in the fitness field include: • exercises geared toward functional strength that can be utilized in real-world situations, from playing sports to lifting furniture • training sessions that are short, intense, and highly effective • compound, multijoint exercises that replace the less-effective isolation exercises found in many fitness books • no-nonsense dietary information utilizing a new and innovative food pyramid developed by the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition that will optimize strength gains, recovery, and physical progress

* Will Gadd is an ESPN X Games and Ice World Cup winner * There are 1.1 million ice climbers in the U.S. (Outdoor Industry Association, 2001) * Seventh installment in The Mountaineers Outdoor Expert series "Mixed climbing is my favorite discipline. It's the most fun because it has the fewest rules-sort of like professional wrestling compared to boxing." So says Will Gadd, as profiled in Fifty Favorite Climbs. Here the champion ice climber presents the same techniques and veteran wisdom he imparts to those who attend his annual clinics. These include step-by-step instructions for the swing (ice axe), the kick (footwork), and putting it all together (tracking); how to "read" ice to select your line and follow it safely; and drytool techniques for mixed climbing. Training exercises and inspirational stories complete this seminal guide. Will Gadd won every major ice competition in the world in 1998 and 1999, as well as the 2000 Ice World Cup.
