Pull-up performance can be a predictor of multiple factors in sport and life. If you're looking to swim a faster 50-freestyle in the pool, improve your pull-up performance (Pérez-Olea, José I.; Valenzuela, Pedro L.; Aponte, Concepción; Izquierdo, Mikel, 2018). Want the ability to catch more waves while surfing? Improve your pull-up performance (Sheppard, Jeremy M.; McNamara, Phil; Osborne, Mark; Andrews, Mark; Oliveira Borges, Thiago; Walshe, Phil; Chapman, Dale W, 2012). If you are looking to minimize shoulder pain, improve your pull-up performance. The pull-up is oozing with value. You just have to tap into it.
