Hi all can anyone recommend another exercise to replace the wide grip pull up that i can incorporate into my two day split as i am totally s**t at them, don't laugh but i can only manage one!!!! yep that's right a big fat ONE, so was wondering if i could try something else?
Just looking into grip training to help with deadlifts. Could you please post some youtube video's of some good grip exercises I can do at my local gym please? They don't have special equipment for grip training though.
I have been doing some weights for about a year. I have always been naturally very thin - 5ft9, 133lbs, but have gone up to 146lbs in the last year, which I am pleased with. Not looking to get massive obviously, just consistently add some weight month after month.
My problem is with...
been doing wide grip pull downs on machine.
i can also do 8 - 10 wide grip pull ups with a bar.
please excuse my ignorance but do they do the exact same muscles, if so are the pull ups better - should i stop the pull down machine and go for the pull ups?
