I'm doing pull ups from a bar, but I'm only able to get about 3 repetitions. After 3 times my biceps can't lift my head up the bar. I am doing ab exercises as well, but that hasn't increased my rep count. How can I increase the number of pull ups I can do?
I'm looking for instruction on the technique for doing proper pull ups:
- How much distance between my hands?
- Which way should they be facing?
- How should I be breathing during the exercise?
- Should I do reps as fast as I can, or should I do slow pull ups?
I'd also like supplementary exercises to help increase the number of repetitions I can perform.
