Goin’ Commando

Recently was asked about the Commando Pull-Up and no, they aren’t what you think. 😉 The military probably calls these by a different name but this is what I know em as. Today I shot a quick vid for you showing different hand positions and variations that I like playing with. I also like to relax the hand furthest away from me so that it acts as more of a single arm pulling exercise. Play around with em and see how it goes. (Workout details after vid)

Recently I've been posting my daily workout sessions to my personal blog and was asked about the Commando Pull-Up. And no, @primalphysicaltherapy they aren't what you think. 😉 The military probably calls these by a different name but this is what I know em as. Here are a couple vids showing different hand positions and variations that I like playing with. I also like to relax the hand furthest away from me so that it acts as more of a single arm pulling exercise. Play around with em and see how it goes. Also, shout out to @arcstu for the shirt. 🙂 . .

Today’s Theme -> Pulling My Weight Around Here

Prep – warm-up stuff for pulling

Practice – Front and Back Levers

Started with single reps of front lever holds and once I couldn’t do anymore did some back levers.

Push

  • One Arm Chins – Just a couple of these today
  • 75kg single rep chin-ups X 5 with 1 min rest between.
  • Commando alternating chins with focus on outside arm pull until burned out
    • I ended up doing probably 8 sets of these because I wanted to take vid
  • Ring rows to burn out x 2 sets with 30 sec rest between sets.

Oh, I also jumped rope early this morning for 20 minutes before work just because.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I think you’ve inspired me to start training with a “split” again.

    My sessions have been taking a bit too long for my liking, after doing full body stuff for quite a while.

    1. Hey Matt! Yeah, I really just felt like a change and why I’m doing splits again. Similar to you, my full body sessions were taking pretty long and I was super exhausted after them. Trying this out and seeing how it goes. Lemme know how it goes with you.
