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.
When it comes to driving change in your body, short, daily routines can lead to a sizable impact compared to one long session on the weekend.
Your body likes to be exposed to a manageable stimulus often if it is to drive change. A massive stimulus (ex. long weekend session) is going to have a back-burner effect at best.
Think about your current state of health (or lack thereof). Did you arrive at your current state overnight? No. It was more of a gradual morph over time. This also means you're not going to get out of this state overnight. Change takes time and a daily approach to change will help drive long-term change.
