Are you trying for a weight gaining exercise. Do you want to know how to gain muscle mass for skinny people. Let’s discuss some exercises. Whenever you workout your back and your bicep, you’re always pulling. So mastering this movement is going to teach you the proper engagement in your muscles. For a pulling motion, developing more strength for back and bicep exercises. Now, when you’re getting started with pull ups, the first thing you want to do is master the very first progression. That’s going to be Australian pull ups. You want to use every grip, wide shoulder, enclosed as well as a supinated grip to ensure you’re using all the muscles in your back and bicep and to develop even greater and more comfortable pulling strength. The more comfortable you are with these different grips and positions, the more reps you’re going to be able to perform, the stronger you’re going to get and the faster you’re going to progress.
In fact, once you can do 10 Australian pull ups, with perfect form, you’re ready to move on to the next progression, which is going to be jumping pull ups. You want to practice those with every single grip as well. And once you can do 10 jumping pull ups with perfect form, then you should’ve developed the strength to be able to do at least a couple jump negative pull ups. That’s when you’re going to really start to feel your entire body weight during the ascension portion of this exercise, getting you more used to handling your body weight. And by that time, after you can do 10 of those with perfect form, you should be able to do at least 1 perfect pull up. You basically want to max out each progression starting with your hardest, working your way all the way down to the easiest. But to master the pull up, you’re going to need at least 10 reps with perfect form. Let’s go for it.
All right, moving onto the next exercise. Next we have push ups, let’s get it. All right, now to master the push ups you need to be able to do at least 15 repetitions with perfect form. Let me show you what that looks like. (hip-hop instrumental) All right, so there we have the push ups. Now, just like the pull up is the main fundamental for all pulling motion, the push up is the main fundamental for all pushing motions. So the better you get at push ups and the more reps you’re able to perform properly, the better you’re going to get and the more reps you’re going to be able to perform for all other pushing exercises. Increasing your bench press, increasing your dips, your core strength and every other chest, tricep, and pushing compound exercise.
And of course the more reps and exercises you’re able to perform properly, the better results you’re going to get. Develop your chest and tricep muscles even more, allowing you to progress on to even harder exercises that will give you even greater results that you couldn’t have achieved otherwise if you had not mastered the push up. So if you’re just getting started with push ups, really pay attention to your form. You want to do these as perfect as possible. And at the beginning if you’re really struggling to make sure that you can really focus on your form, definitely start on your knees, maxing your repetitions out from that position. Once you increase the volume and you can do about 20 knee push ups, you’ll definitely be able to do at least a couple push ups with perfect form. And to master the push ups and to complete this exercise for the routine, you’re going to need to do 15 push ups. So start off with the hardest progression, max those out, work your way down.
And then let’s go to the next exercise, that’s going to be dips. All right, now to master the dips, you need to be able to do at least 10 with perfect form, in a row. And that’s also going to be the requirements for this workout routine. The dips is another pushing fundamental that engages your chest and your triceps, along with your core. To lift your body and push in a downward motion. And the very first progression to start working on this exercise is going to be bench dips. Choosing a high or low surface will determine the level of difficulty for this exercise. So the higher is it, the easier it will be and the lower it is, the more body weight will be applied, making it harder, working your triceps more but also getting you closer to being able to perform actual dips. So I’m going to show you what bench dips look like.
