Four Tips To Increase Your Pullup Count

Pullups. P90X loves ’em and the new Insanity (Asylum) will be doing them as well. Thing is… they’re TOUGH. When I first started P90X, I could only do three… and the third looked more like a wriggling, gasping  fish on a hook than an actual pullup. You may find you can do more. You may […]
