Total Gym Single Arm Pullups - Mastering the 1 arm Pull-up

One arm pull-ups are an exercise that few will be able to do during their lifetime. You can use one grip pull-ups in which you grip with one arm but pull with both, or you can use the Total Gym. If you want to perform single arm pull-ups one day start using the Total Gym on a low angle and ensure you can keep proper form. A low level on the Total Gym may mean you are lifting less than 10% of your body weight but you have to start somewhere.

Even if doing a pull-up with one arm is not on your life's to-do list you can still use the Total Gym single arm pullups in your workout program to unilaterally strengthen your lats, biceps and forearms. You can choose to perform sets of single arm pull-ups or you can do multiple versions of the Total Gym pullups including the eccentric only one arm pull up.

Since the one pull-up is going to be the ultimate feat of human strength for most people, having the full supply of your energy stores is going to help so do these one arm pull-ups as the first exercise for back during any workout you do them in.
