The Pull-up Solution by John Sifferman
Want to do more pull-ups?
To the Man or Woman who can do ZERO Pull-ups and Wants to do Sets of 10, 20, 30, or More: Learn How I Dramatically Improved my Pull-up Performance and Have Helped Hundreds of People do the Same With a Unique Twist on Pull-up Training.
If you’ve been struggling to get better at pull-ups and chin-ups, then I’d really like the opportunity to help you succeed – and I’m confident that I can.
Over the years, I’ve discovered a number of key components that are essential to pull-up training success, that unfortunately, most people either don’t know about, or at the very least, don’t use. And thus, they perpetually struggle with exercises like pull-ups among others. But when all of these key components are integrated into one comprehensive system – when you connect the dots – pull-up training success is guaranteed. And on this page, I’m going to help you understand why.
You see, I’m a fitness coach who has loved pull-up training ever since I was a kid, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked about how to get better at pull-ups and chin-ups over the years. From the many times I’ve been ambushed beneath the pull-up bar at various gyms to the countless questions I’ve received online since I started publishing fitness articles in 2008, it’s been overwhelming. And after answering the same questions over and over again about how to get better at pull-ups, I realized that, “hey, I could do something with my unique twist on pull-up training and maybe even help a lot of people.”
So, I decided to create a comprehensive pull-up training system called The Pull-up Solution that can help practically anyone improve their pull-up numbers using a unique system that works better than anything else currently available.
You see, unlike every other pull-up training book, e-book, DVD, or digital product, The Pull-up Solution is a fully-customizable, do-it-yourself coaching system to help you rapidly improve your pull-up numbers safely and effectively using methods I’ve learned from various fitness professionals, athletes, martial artists, special operations personnel, and yes, even some of my personal training clients. Sometimes, I think they teach me more than I teach them!
And over the years, I’ve learned that most people need more than just a generic, cookie-cutter workout program to help them reach their goals – whether for improving pull-ups or otherwise. Perhaps 1 in 10 people can make that work, but it’s the other 9 who struggle over and over again that I’ve worked with the most. You know – normal people. And there are a lot of obvious reasons why they’ve been struggling!
Because let’s face it. Pull-ups are HARD, and most people struggle with them because of that reason alone. You can’t just take weight plates off to make the exercise more manageable, and so there is a much higher barrier to entry when it comes to pull-ups. Not to mention it takes a little bit of discipline and hard work applied consistently over time to build up your pull-up strength and maintain it. It should go without saying that getting better at pull-ups doesn’t happen by accident. It takes time, humility, and a lot of patience. And you have to be very intentional and systematic about it every step of the way.
And in a similar vein, some people think that working hard is all you have to do, and if you only worked harder, then you would succeed. But this isn’t true either. You have to work hard and smart to succeed with pull-ups.
Now, not only are pull-ups hard in-and-of-themselves, but most people perform them improperly – and not just the technique of the exercise itself, but with poor exercise programming, too. They either “wing it” and get no results, poor results, or random results OR they follow a generic, cookie-cutter program that isn’t suited for their unique needs and circumstances hoping that it will magically help them achieve their goals. But that’s like playing the lottery with your results – the odds are against you. And maybe you’ve had this mentality before, as I have. But when you really think about it, that’s not exactly the best approach. Is it?
So, no wonder most people struggle with pull-ups!
And this problem is further compounded by the fact that most people don’t get the right kind of help. They try to do it alone. They don’t hire a coach. They go looking online and think that reading one article or watching one video once in awhile will provide the solution they’ve been searching for and solve their problem instantly.
Maybe that’s you. And you know how that usually goes.
The truth is that there’s more to performing a pull-up than simply getting your chin over the bar – a lot more. But you won’t learn the best techniques and training strategies in an exercise textbook or an online video. And chances are, your personal trainer may know the basics, but won’t have any advanced solutions or, more importantly, the right personal touch, to help you reach a whole new level.
This is why I created The Pull-up Solution for people like you. Because I might not know everything there is to know about exercise, but I do know a heck-of-a-lot about pull-up training and have a long track record of helping people get really good at them quickly and safely. This is something I’ve been really good at for a long time, and I’ve finally put all of my methods into one affordable package so that this is the last pull-up training resource you ever need.
Click Play to watch me do 30 pull-ups.
Now, I won’t lie to you and claim that I’m some big-dog personal trainer to the celebrities. I don’t have a long list of super-clients ranging from movie stars to rock stars to Navy SEALS. The truth is that I’m just your average fitness professional from the backwoods of small-town New Hampshire who happens to know a heck-of-a-lot about pull-up training. And I’d estimate that 90% of my personal training clients over the years have been ordinary folks just looking to get healthier, stronger, and leaner – not super-athletes or some genetic elite.
And so, with this never-seen-before, one-of-a-kind system that I made for anyone with two good arms, you can become extremely proficient in the pull-up exercise – to perform sets of 10, 20, 30, or more reps – and reap all the benefits that comes with that kind of conditioning: strong and defined arms, shoulders, back, and core musculature. Not to mention better posture and serious pound-for-pound strength that will let you progress to more advanced exercises, too.
Just do more pull-ups. (BIG FAT LIE!)
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen an article from a fitness trainer or strength coach who says that you “just need to do more pull-ups” if you want to get better at them.
Unfortunately, it’s just not that simple.
Sure. That advice might seem to work for some people, for a little while. But this usually happens despite their simplified approach, and when it does, the results seldom last. Not to mention that this advice isn’t applicable to people who can’t do any pull-ups yet – or practically anyone else with special considerations, for that matter.
You see, getting really good at pull-up training and succeeding over the long term requires the integration of several key components that are essential to pull-up training success. In other words, if you don’t get all of these right, then you can forget about succeeding. It just won’t happen – at least, not in my experience.
Because in every single case I’ve ever encountered where someone was struggling to get better at pull-ups, there was at least one – and usually more – of these components missing from their approach. The good news is that when we identify what it is and make some simple changes to their approach, the results finally start coming in.
And I’m not talking about some trendy tips or secrets, but the laws of conditioning and principles of training. Things like the proper use of progression, overload, and periodization, among others. And if you’re missing even just one of the components, then at best, you’ll get sub-par or even no results, whatsoever – wasting your time and energy on something that won’t pay off. And at worst, you may experience overtraining, injuries, or other problems. And many people do!
So, in The Pull-up Solution, I’ve made it my goal to seamlessly integrate all of these key components into one holistic system so that your results are practically guaranteed – and you don’t even have to think about it because it’s all been done for you.
All but one of the keys, that is. The last key component of pull-up training success is hard work, and YOU are in charge of that one! I can throw out words like progression and overload, yadda yadda yadda, but if you’re not willing to work hard, you can forget about succeeding. As I’ve said before, you have to work hard and smart with pull-up training, and nobody gets better at them by accident.
So, how did this product come about?
Ever since I started publishing fitness articles and videos online, one of the most common questions I’ve received is on how to get better at pull-ups. So, I found myself creating pull-up training articles and videos, and that would cause even more questions to come in.
I also had other website owners contact me and pay me to write pull-up training articles for their readers, too. Before long, I was starting to be known as an unconventional pull-up training expert in a few corners of the Internet.
And then it happened. I decided to publish my very own pull-up workout program with a twist – combining some of my best pull-up training strategies into one program and also including some special instructions for customizing the workouts to better suit my web visitor’s needs.
And that blogpost went absolutely viral in every sense of the word. It didn’t just start getting hundreds of hits per day, it started getting tens of thousands of visitors each day. It was shared thousands of times through various social media services. And to this day, it’s still my highest-viewed webpage with over 1 million views.
So, a few months after that happened, I thought to myself, “maybe I have something here that can really help people.” I know. I’m a little slow. But that’s when the idea for The Pull-up Solution was born, and the official beta-testing began. I started working with people to see how well my program worked for my online clients, for men, women, old, young, soldiers, and law enforcement officers, among others.
I wanted to find out if my program was more effective than the alternatives they’d tried in the past. And to say it was would be an understatement. The truth is that the positive feedback was overwhelming!
I never thought a single blogpost with a workout program could bring in so many success stories. But over the next two years, I worked with dozens of people to see how the program went in order to improve it and turn it into a comprehensive product.
Some of my beta-testers kept in very close contact with me via email and Skype throughout the process, but most of them followed the program almost entirely on their own – sending me an update on their progress and an occasional question once in awhile.
Note: you can see some of their results further down this page.
To my delight, the program has been a complete success! I’ve received dozens of confirmed success stories from people who were ecstatic from the results. And to this day, I’ve only received one negative report from someone who didn’t succeed with it. Needless to say, I’m pretty satisfied with those results.
And so, I’ve spent the last two years refining that original program with the help of my beta-testers to create a much more comprehensive, no-nonsense system for mastering pull-ups.
The Pull-up Solution gives YOU the keys to create a customized workout program using a tested-and-proven system that addresses your unique needs, goals, and circumstances.
Because the fact of the matter is that not everyone can do pull-ups. And not everyone progresses at the same pace or using the same route. Also, some people have pre-existing conditions and injuries that they have to work around, or past injuries they don’t want to experience again. And some people have a deadline to meet for a fitness test or athletic event.
Needless to say, the need for personalization is huge! And since I can’t necessarily work with you in person (unless you live in the Northeast USA), it would be ridiculous for me to ask you to follow a specific workout program that isn’t catered to your needs.
And seriously, who can afford to spend a fortune on a coach just to help them get better at pull-ups? Not too many people I know.
And that’s why I took one aspect of this product very seriously: personalization.
Sure, a good program will often work well enough for most people, if they can follow it. But a small touch of personalization goes a really long way. And I’ve done everything I can to make this program as customizable as possible to make it as easy as possible for you to succeed.
In fact, one of my ultimate goals in creating this product was to make it so user-friendly and customizable, that it was almost like hiring me as your full-time pull-up training coach. More specifically, I wanted this do-it-yourself training system to come as close to having a coach as possible, without actually having one (or having to pay for one!).
And so, The Pull-up Solution gives you the keys to create your own custom pull-up training program based on YOU – your needs, goals, and circumstances. Because no two people should follow the same exact program.
So, what does this personalization actually look like in practical terms?
Well, first, unlike most cookie-cutter pull-up workout programs, The Pull-up Solution meets you where you are today and gives you exercises that will match both your skill level and conditioning level. In other words, you won’t be asked (i.e. forced) to do an exercise you can’t already do.
So, nowhere in the program will I be telling you to do “3 sets of 5 pull-ups” or some other generic recommendation of sets and reps.
Instead, I’ve included some simple workout programming strategies that anyone can apply to help you customize the program to your skill and conditioning level. These are the same strategies I’ve been using with my own personal training clients for years. And believe me, you don’t need a PhD in exercise science to use them – an understanding of third-grade math will be sufficient.
Secondly, I’ve tried to make the program as easy to implement into your daily schedule as possible. You get to decide not only when you do your workouts, but also for how long. You can even shorten or extend specific training phases to meet your schedule, and I’ve provided an easy-to-read chart in an appendix to help you figure out the best training schedule for you in less than a minute. I’ve tried to incorporate as many time-saving benefits as possible because I know you’re busy.
Thirdly, I’ve made it customizable to not only your goals, but also your starting point. So, if you just want to get your first pull-up, then this will give you the tools and a blueprint for how to make that happen. And if you want to score your first 10 or 20 reps, then this product will show you the way. If you want to use pull-ups to get stronger and lay a foundation for more advanced exercises, then that’s in here, too. So, needless to say, if you have a goal at-all related to improving your pull-up performance, then this system was created for you.
Finally, this is not just a workout program that tells you to “do this, not that, etc.” This is an entire system containing progressive, scalable, customizable workouts, video instruction, coaching tips, and a unique personalization guide, among many other elements.
Basically, I’ve taken everything necessary or otherwise very important for pull-up training success, and compiled it into a step-by-step comprehensive system that can work for practically anyone who is able to follow instructions, and more importantly, willing to work hard.
So, believe me when I say that you’ve never seen another pull-up training program like this before. It is truly one-of-a-kind. And I would know since I’ve purchased and reviewed every single pull-up training resource out there – books, DVD’s, digital products, Kindle e-books, etc. In fact, I’ve got a whole stack of pull-up training resources on my bookshelf that I bought and devoured in order to help me make this product as useful and valuable as possible for you.
And the best part is that I’m offering the entire system at a very affordable price. For less than the cost of a single personal training session, you can get the entire system that has taken me years to research, test, refine, and systematize.
So, all that said, please allow me to introduce you to The Pull-up Solution – the last program you’ll ever need to master the pull-up and chin-up exercises.
There are three main components contained inside The Pull-up Solution: the manual, the video database, and the progress tracking journal.
This 45-page e-book will guide you through the process of using this system. It was written and formatted with simplicity in mind so that you can work through it quickly. Plus, with the Quick-Start Guide, you can begin training in minutes if you want to. It will literally take you by the hand and show you exactly what you need to do each and every day so that there is no guesswork involved – just follow the instructions. Again, my goal was to provide a resource that was so comprehensive that it’s as close to having a coach as possible, without actually having one.
The manual also contains the actual 12-week workout program you’ll be going through with detailed instructions to help you make the most of each and every training session.
There are also various features to help you customize it to your needs:
There are over thirty instructional videos in four distinct categories included in the system. All videos were created to be short and to the point so you’re not wasting your time trying to find the information you need.
The 8 Key Components of Optimal Pull-up Technique – These will help you learn both the main points and the subtle nuances of pull-up technique to make sure you’re performing each exercise not just properly, but optimally.
These videos will help you…
Warmup and Cooldown Instructional Videos for Pull-up Pre-hab and Injury-Prevention – Using state-of-the-art training modalities, these two follow along videos will guide you step-by-step through a precision warmup and cooldown protocol that was custom-made for pull-up trainees.
These videos will help you…
Exercise Technique Instructional Videos – Learn exactly how to perform all of the exercises in the program with these short and to-the-point videos.
These videos will help you…
Tips, Tricks, and Techniques Videos to Improve Pull-up Performance
These videos will help you…
The last element of the program is the Progress Tracking Journal, which will help you keep track of your improvements each time you train. It’s available in both printable and digital format, and has been pre-formatted so that all you need to do is enter your data as you go along – saving you time so that you can get back to your life once you’re done training.
I’ve also included some additional bonuses in the package deal – just because I like you so much and really want you to succeed. These are not necessary to complete the program, but they will absolutely help you in your pull-up training endeavors. You can think of these as my way of saying “thanks” for investing in my program.

Hi John, When I started I could just about do 1 pull-up. Slightly embarrassing but that was my starting point. 😉 At the end of month 1, I can do 5 with proper form. I’m double happy. Thanks for your help, it’s much appreciated. -Dom
I finished month one of the pull ups program 4 days ago. My goal was to do 15 pull ups by the end of the first month–I could do 8 when I started. Today I warmed up with some stretching, and calesthetics. Did a one rep set, and then a 4 rep set of pull ups, then rested. Then I went for a max set–I did 15 good reps, and had my chin within an inch of the bar for a 16th rep. So, I am well satisfied with the progress I made. My goal will be to hit a 20 rep max set by the end of month two. – Norm
There’s something about pullups, pushups, 1 leg squats and other bodyweight exercises that just makes me feel STRONG all the time. It’s great to know I can jump up and grab a ledge, bar or tree and pull myself up anytime. – Steve in Florida
Thank you so much for this workout, my pull-ups increased from 3 to 6 in just 1 week. Now i can get better marks at school. I’m 14 and this program works great so far. –Tom
My Results: I went from 11 chin ups to 17 chin ups in about 10 weeks. Pretty impressive in my book. I skipped the first month. Other than that, I followed the plan pretty closely except I added a week or so to month 2 and month 3. I also did these workouts along with a pushup workout so the intensity was perhaps a little less than for someone who treated this as a workout program in-itself. – Ben
After 4 weeks I definitely made significant progress from where I began doing 2-3 iffy pullups to being able to do 7 complete dead hangs slowly. – Mike
Your pullup program is super awesome!! Just reviewing your detailed program changed my mindset on how to do a proper pullup. Thanks. – Michael S Navalta, Texas
“Current pull-up count is 12…” (one month later) I entered a chin-up contest for fun and did pretty well. I did 19 (really good for me, though they weren’t doing full extension, so I cheated on form as well) and I was running on 4 hours of sleep and was dehydrated, so I’m convinced I could do more! I’m still planning on finishing the 3 month program. – Marcus Fluty
With this program, I increased my one rep max from 8 to 13, that is a 62% increase. I would say I followed it about 90% of the way, I didn’t rest as much for the last day as he advised to and I did gain maybe two pounds while doing it (maybe muscle?). Despite my modest gains, I recommend this program. I really liked the first month, I could see some size gains after day 30 for sure! I am now going to try the Armstrong program. -Matt Garza
I work as an aerialist and found this tutorial through an aerial site. Even with that background I think I was doing just about everything wrong that I could have been. I tried doing it the way you taught and I noticed an immediate difference. Thank you so much for a brilliant tutorial video. -Ben
I did John’s 3-month pullup regimen, and at the time, I could only do 2-3 pullups. After the regimen, my max is now 6 and it definitely helped me lose some weight and give my upper body a nice V-shape (along with cardio & weight training and proper diet). You can see my experience on my blog (see blog archives from april 2012): mitsk2002.wordpress.com. John is a great resource. -Mitsu
And here’s the video Kristian sent me of Eva’s progress…
I’ve since heard from Kristian that they absolutely love The Pull-up Solution, and now Eva is working on a weighted pull-ups training program to prepare for her next fitness competition…because regular pull-ups are just too easy for her now!
Chase Cullinan followed the beta-version of The Pull-up Solution and achieved exceptional results. He is a good example of some of the best results that can be obtained using the program.
And not only did he drastically increase his pull-up numbers, but he did so with very little help from me. In fact, I didn’t even hear from him – or even know he was using my program – until he was already half-way through the program. Here is what he sent me…
I found this program and decided to use it as I prepare for U.S. Marine Corps Officer Candidate Course. My goal is to blast away 20 with ease. This scores 100% for the pull-up portion of the Physical Fitness Test. I have combined this program with running, rucking with weight, and cross-training and am at the half-way point for this program. I began at 4 dead-hang pull-ups as my max and can now do 3x that many. I have done the single step pyramid to 10 a few times and have been able to hit 10 each time. While I have not maxed out since I began, knowing that I can do 10 after having already completed 40 in pyramid increments, I am sure that I could do 12 or more for a max set. This program is great and I am striving to hit the 30 rep mark by the end of the next month and a half. Thanks for sharing the plan. – Chase Cullinan Third Generation Deputy Sheriff. Criminal Justice and Sociology Double Major. #USMC OCS Applicant and Hopeful future MARSOC Officer. Augusta, GA
Shortly after sending that message, Chase sent me this video of his progress. His goal for this set was 16 reps, but as you can see, he flew right past that…
He kept me posted on his progress via Twitter – making notes of his continuing success…
After he finally took the U.S. Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test, he sent me this Tweet…
And now he’s moving on to even greater goals on his own…
I wanted to share both Chase and Eva’s stories with you not only because of how well they’ve done but also because they both followed a bare-bones version of my program completely on their own and still did amazing. And I believe you can, too, especially since The Pull-up Solution is a new-and-improved, massively-updated system that has been – dare I say – nearly perfected for the aspiring pull-up trainee.
Now, these results are definitely not typical because most people who buy a fitness program don’t even start it, and many of the ones who do start don’t finish it! But Chase and Eva found a good program, took action, and worked hard over a period of months – and got the results to prove it. If you want results like they got, then you should follow their example and do the same.
You’ll get out of this program what you put into it.
I’ll give it to you straight. I don’t want you to just be satisfied with your purchase. I want to impress you. I want you to feel like you got the better deal and walk away amazed at the value of your investment.
And honestly, I don’t want the price to be a primary factor in your buying decision. So, rather than try to squeeze a few bucks out of you, I’d rather earn your trust and inspire you to succeed. The way I see it, if I can provide you with the knowledge and resources you need to succeed and help you to trust in yourself and your ability to see a program like this through to completion, then I think we’ve both won.
Now, you and I both know that’s just not happening for the vast majority of people these days. And obviously, most people would think you’re crazy to spend that much money just on pull-up training. And that’s why I’m offering the entire package at a significantly discounted rate to get it into the hands of as many people as possible during it’s initial release.
Hey, John–first of all, no need to thank me for the comment – I should thank you for making such a great system. I’ve been working on calisthenics for about a year now and the only exercise I’ve struggled with is pull-ups. After watching one of your youtube videos recently, I literally increased my pullups by 40% just from changing my grip/wrists/tightening my body more. Hence my purchase of your system.
Just did my first run-through after buying the system and I have to say that the warmup and cooldown routines are so good they’re almost worth the price of admission alone. Wow! Also – the system looks great, I can’t wait to work my way up to 30+ reps. 🙂
I am so confident that my system will help you achieve your pullup and chinup performance goals, that I’ll let you try it for up to 60 days risk-free.
If for any reason, you are not totally satisfied (e.g. it doesn’t work for you, not what you were expecting, you never actually used it, you don’t like my New England accent or red hair, etc.), just contact me and I will get you a full refund – no questions asked.
I want you to feel comfortable making an online purchase from a stranger and that’s why I offer this 60-day unconditional, money-back guarantee. Take it or leave it. You have nothing to lose.
Listen. I know you’ve never met me before, and there’s absolutely no reason for you to trust me at all. I could be an out-of-shape marketing expert who has never done a pull-up my entire life and is trying to mislead as many people as possible during my short time here on Earth. I may even get sadistic pleasure from fooling you like so many other so-called “fitness gurus” do on a regular basis with their marketing scams. And in this day and age, a website like this could be a complete hoax!
So, if you’re skeptical. I get it. You should be!
But in the event that this sales page has stirred up even the faintest hint of trust in me – and showed you that I sincerely want to help you succeed – then please listen very carefully to what I’m about to tell you because it’s important.
I wouldn’t risk my reputation to make a few bucks, and I wouldn’t lie to you. The truth is that even though I’ve been a fitness author since 2008, this is the first fitness product I’ve ever created on my own and I want to do it right so that I can make more like it in the future (if you’ll let me!). So, I’m not some con-artist or snake-oil salesman trying to trick you out of a few bucks. I’m a real person and John Sifferman is my real name. Look me up. I’ve been helping people get fit for many years, and it shouldn’t be hard to find me.
You should also know that even though this is my first fitness product, I’m not offering some joke-of-a-product that was thrown together in one night and would make your high-school science project look good. This is the real deal and even before its release, it had a long track record of success with people from all around the world. But even though this is a great program, there’s something you should know about it before we wrap up.
Let me tell you straight.
This is not a quick-fix program. There are no shortcuts to getting better at pull-ups – period. So, don’t get me wrong and think that I’m offering some type of magic bullet or miracle solution because I’m not. And if that’s what you’re looking for, then you won’t find it here. Trust me.
But the fact of the matter is that The Pull-up Solution is a unique system that helps people rapidly increase their pull-up numbers better than anything else currently available because it was designed to take you right to your edge, and no further – each and every time you train – using the power of personalization.
But here’s the thing: just because it is the best, doesn’t mean it’s the best for you. Because let’s face it – nothing is a perfect fit for everybody.

I can do zero pull-ups or chin-ups and have struggled with them my entire life. Is this program for me?
A thousand times yes! The Pull-up Solution was created for beginners and even ultra-beginners who may struggle just hanging from the bar – let alone performing pull-ups. It has been designed to take you by the hand and show you exactly what you have to do each day so that you can make measurable progress each time you train.
Yes, but I’m __________ (overweight, weak, old, etc.), and I couldn’t even dream of doing full pull-ups. Is this program really for me?
Yep. As long as you’re healthy enough to exercise (i.e. doctor’s clearance for exercise and/or strength training activities), and you can support some of your weight while hanging from a bar, then yes, this program was created for people just like you.
I can already do several pull-ups in one set, but have struggled to make further gains. Is this program for me?
Another resounding yes! This program is meant to help you take your current pull-up training to the next level, whatever that may mean for you. And if you can already perform a few solid reps, then you’ve got a good head start.
I can already do 15-20+ pull-ups, and am looking for the next step, level or edge in my pull-up training. Is this program for me?
Yes, but with a big but… The Pull-up Solution was created for beginners and advanced trainees alike, but there is something all advanced trainees should know before investing in the product.
Once you’ve made not only your initial gains, but also further progress that has you nearing your peak potential, all future progress will come very slowly. And there is no way around this – no special tip, trick, hack, or programming secret to speed up your results. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t admit that. So, for example, if you can already do 20+ pull-ups, then don’t necessarily expect to double or triple your numbers your first time through this program. It may be possible, but it’s certainly not typical.
The fact of the matter is that going from one repetition to 10 is much easier than going from 20 repetitions to 30. And the further up the ladder you get, the harder the results become. Plus, it just takes more time. That said, if your goal is to keep getting stronger and adding numbers to your total, and lay a strong foundation for more advanced bar exercises (e.g. muscle ups) then this is a great program for that.
Hello John! Respect from Lithuania!
Thank you for posting this program, I became obsessed with it, and after two months my pull up count quintupled. Thanks again, I really appreciate your work. – Consistent one (username)
Does this program work for women?
It sure does. In fact, this is an ideal program for women because it gives you all the tools you need to maximize your results. And since women tend to have less upper body biomass (i.e., muscle) than men, every little bit of extra personalization helps.
Am I too old for this program?
I don’t know. You tell me! But seriously, if you are serious about getting better at pull-ups, and you are a bit past your prime, then you’ll be much better served by this program than any of the other pull-up training resources out there, and here’s why.
You see, The Pull-up Solution is a health-first fitness program that comes with built-in pre-habilitation methods to give you a toolbox of injury prevention and recovery strategies. The package also includes extremely detailed exercise technique instructions to help you perform the exercises safely and efficiently to help prevent both injuries and excessive wear and tear on your body. And while you will be instructed to perform exercises at moderate to high intensity during some of the workouts (see FAQ on High Intensity Training below for more info), this is certainly not a hardcore exercise program like some of the ones all the young whippersnappers are doing these days.
And don’t forget about the customizable nature of the program that suits it to your individual needs, including, but not limited to the Personalization Guide, which coincidentally, has a section for “Middle age persons and senior citizens.” This will give you some specific advice that is more appropriate for seasoned trainees. So, I’ve got you covered. And in all seriousness, it’s never too late to start training for more strength and better health. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
I have an ache, pain, injury, or other pre-existing condition. Can I still use this program?
If your doctor has cleared you for exercise, then you can still use this program. However, if your condition causes significant pain while performing pull-ups or other similar exercises, then it would be advisable to start this program after you have rehabilitated. That said, if you can perform pull-ups (or comparable exercises) with only mild discomfort, then you may be able to use the program safely and effectively. Please refer to the medical disclaimer for more details. And if you have a specific concern, feel free to contact me, and I’d be happy to tell you what I think – even if it means telling you that it would be best not to buy my program.
Yes, but I have a bad ___________ (shoulder, elbow, wrist, back, etc.). Can I really use the program?
As long as your pain does not exceed a three, on a scale of one to ten (10 being the worst pain you’ve ever felt, and 1 being no discomfort whatsoever), then yes, you can use this program.
I’m not an athlete, soldier, police officer, or fireman. Will this program still work for me?
You don’t have to be an Olympic Gold Medalist or Navy SEAL to use The Pull-up Solution. Hardly! This program was designed for anyone who wants to get better at pull-ups – period. And that includes normal people living ordinary lives. Besides, how many Navy SEALs do you know that are struggling to get better at pull-ups anyway?
I set myself a goal was to complete a proper pullup and I’ve just done that – my first ever unassisted, from hanging pullup. Wicked! Your proper explanation and understanding of body mechanics, posture etc is crucial for health and fitness and I thank you for putting such good onto the web. Keep up the good work. – Marcus
How quickly can I improve my pull-up numbers on your program?
It depends on a ton of factors like your starting point, conditioning level, skill level with the exercises, body weight, body composition, age, recovery ability, and time available for training – not to mention your mental toughness and work ethic, among many other things. So, there is no definitive number or percentage I could give you.
I can say that beginners tend to experience more rapid results than advanced trainees, and it’s not uncommon for them to double, triple, or even quadruple their results in the first month alone. And to date, I’ve had not one, but two, beginner-level beta-testers quintuple their results, going from 1-5 pull-ups and 2-10 pull-ups, respectively, in just the first month on the program. So, it just depends.
The bottom line is that you’ll get out of this program whatever you put into it. Keep in mind that working hard on a good program will yield far better results than a mild effort on a perfect program. Luckily, you can be the one who works hard on a great program that is customized to your needs for optimal results.
How long is the program and what do I do after I’ve finished it?
There are three primary phases in the program, and each one is four weeks long. So, the official program is 12 weeks long, or about three months when accounting for rest and recovery time. However, if you don’t have a full three months to commit to pull-up training, there is also a chart to help you modify the program based on how much time you do have available. So, if you only have one or two months available to focus on pull-ups – instead of the full three months – there are different program schedules for you to follow instead.
There is also a fourth phase of the program for maintaining your results (i.e. the maintenance phase), which can be done indefinitely, but like all training programs, it probably won’t be effective forever.
There are further instructions for what to do after you’ve completed the program inside of the program manual.
How often will I have to train and how long do the workouts take?
It depends. The short answer is that most people will need to spend between 10-20 minutes of training per workout for most of the program.
During the first phase of the program, you’ll be instructed to perform pull-ups on your own schedule, whenever you can make time for them, for several days per week. Now, whether your sets are spread across the course of an entire day (e.g. one set every hour or two), or just an evening/morning, or a workout at the gym, or even just over the course of an hour at home (e.g. every 5 minutes), it’s entirely up to you. And if you think I’m just giving you free reign to do whatever you want, I am, but with a certain set of parameters to ensure you succeed. And again, the instructions are quite clear on how to customize it to your schedule to help you match the program to your needs and make the most of your training.
In phases two and three, you’ll perform two or three workouts per week, and most of the workouts will take between 10-20 minutes. There are a couple of pyramid-style workouts that may take longer for advanced trainees who can perform a lot of repetitions. But ultimately, you’re in charge of how long your workouts are. That’s the nature of a customizable program.
Is this a high-intensity training program?
Yes and no, since it depends on which phase of the program you’re in. All of the workouts in the first phase are low to moderate intensity sessions, and you will be instructed not to train anywhere near high intensity. During the second phase of the program, the workouts are mostly moderate intensity sessions, with a few sets being near-max efforts during some of the workouts. And finally, some workouts will absolutely require max or near-max intensity levels, particularly in the third and final phase of the program.
Do I need any special equipment or a gym membership to follow the program?
All you really need is a place to do pull-ups. A pull-up bar is ideal, and preferably one that you’ll have access to regularly. There is some other equipment that is recommended for certain situations, such as a resistance band for performing assisted pull-ups, but all other equipment is optional and not necessary to complete the program.
Your Advice was just outstanding. I have never felt this way before about any exercise. I have been suffering from a nagging pain in my inner elbows for quite a while.. my pull-up routine seemed to have caused it, so i figured i’ll give it a rest for a week or two. but after trying the pronated grip and correct width of the arms and everything I didn’t feel any pain at all while doing the exercise… It’s like a miracle! Better take it easy on my elbows for a week or two anyway and then start training properly! Thank you so much, Ziv from Israel.
I already follow a workout program or other athletic/recreational routine. Can I incorporate this into my existing routine?
Absolutely! And that’s exactly how it was designed and meant to be used. You can either incorporate your pull-up training right into your existing workouts or do it at a separate time – your choice.
Wouldn’t I be better off hiring a personal trainer?
If you can find a local fitness professional who specializes in pull-up training and has already coached many people to master the pull-up and chin-up exercises, AND you can also afford to hire them for several training sessions over the coming weeks and months – investing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars – then absolutely! In-person training from a qualified and competent professional will always trump doing it alone. That said, The Pull-up Solution was designed so that anyone – regardless of their skill, conditioning level, or knowledge – can excel in their pull-up performance on their own. It’s a do-it-yourself program. And honestly, when it comes down to it, most people can master the pull-up exercise without professional instruction. I’ve personally witnessed that happen from all the success stories that have come in from my beta-testers over the years. However, if possible, my advice is to employ the best of both worlds by purchasing a copy of The Pull-up Solution so you get the cutting-edge, tested-and-proven system and after working through some of the program on your own, consult a personal trainer or fitness coach to review your exercise technique, just to make sure you are indeed performing the exercises safely.
Why should I pay for this? Can’t I find this information on the internet for free?
Sure. There are lot’s of free pull-up training resources available online. And if you look around long enough, you may discover that I’ve posted a lot of free pull-up training resources on the internet over the years, too. In fact, I’ve got many pull-up training articles, videos, tips, workouts, and programs on my website www.PhysicalLiving.com. And it’s all free!

But if you’ve struggled in the past to “make it happen” and get the results you want, and you want a step-by-step system that is guaranteed to rapidly improve your pull-up performance in three months or less – and get you far-better results than any single tip, trick, or cookie-cutter program ever can – then by all means, invest in The Pull-up Solution today. Don’t waste any more time, and start seeing results immediately.

And just in case you need even more evidence that I can help you with your pull-up training goals, here is a screenshot of some comments from one of my pull-up training videos on Youtube. If I’m getting this much positive feedback from a free video, just think of how good The Pull-up Solution will be.
If you’re still having trouble making up your mind, then here a bit of advice (i.e., tough love) I’ve told some of my clients over the years.
You may have heard it said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again – even when it’s not working. But here’s the thing: most people do exactly that when it comes to pull-up training. They struggle with pull-ups for months or years simply because they don’t follow a program that is tailored to their needs or they simply don’t get the kind of help they need. And if that’s been you, then you can put a stop to that endless cycle right now.
I created The Pull-up Solution to help people just like you, and I’m offering it at such a low price because I really, truly want to help as many people as possible succeed with their pull-up goals. So, if you’re willing to give it a chance, then pick up your copy today. And don’t forget, if it’s not right for you, there’s the 60-day, 100% money-back guarantee – just in case.
Or, you can keep “winging it” on your own, playing the lottery with your results, and see where that gets you. Your choice.
PRODUCT DISCLAIMER: The Pull-up Solution is a digital product (i.e., downloadable). No physical products will be shipped. After you order, you will get INSTANT ACCESS to download the e-books, video files, and audio files onto your computer. The e-book format is Adobe Acrobat PDF, video files are in MP4 format, and audio files are in MP3 format, all of which can be viewed on any PC or Mac computer (desktop or laptop). You can also view and use the files on Ipads and most mobile devices (i.e. smart phones), but you may need an app to use some of the files (e.g. to read Adobe Acrobat PDF e-books). This product is NOT available in stores.
RESULTS DISCLAIMER: Due to recent FTC laws, it is required that all companies identify what a “typical” result is. Since there is no known established standard for what is considered typical results in a pull-up improvement program, results shown in our many success stories and testimonials may not be typical. Also, results cannot be guaranteed, nor can the permanence of your results. Faster results upon first starting the program are common, especially for beginners to exercise and strength training. But the truth is that most people never do anything with the fitness products they buy. So, most of the time, they don’t get any results at all. The people you see featured on this web site are examples of our best results and are not typical because they actually followed the program and recommendations in The Pull-up Solution. If you want results, you should do this, too.
