Pull-ups are a required test of strength and an essential tool to developing a powerful upper body. Marines perform pull-ups on the annual PFT, directly affecting their ability to promote. Recruits and poolees must be able to perform mandatory minimums or risk being dropped.
Building a strong upper-body is a must in order to ensure Marines are capable of carrying a heavy pack, dragging a downed buddy, negotiating obstacles, or winning in a fight. Pull-ups are one of the best ways to develop a strong, resilient back.
Regardless of starting point or gender, this plan has helped hundreds of Marines and poolees go from few or no pull-ups to more than 20. All you need is a pen, this plan, and a pull-up bar. If you're starting at zero pull-ups, you'll want to purchase a band to help accomodate some of your weight.
We guarantee success if you follow this plan and have personally used it to max PFT's for years.
