Workout Goals:  Why do we program so many Pull Ups?  Pull Ups build muscle in your back, shoulders and arms, improving your overall performance in the gym as well as in any sport you play. They also carry over into daily life. By strengthening your pulling muscles, you are also improving your pressing capabilities, according to the website Double Your Gains, ensuring muscular balance throughout your body thus lowering the occurrences of injuries.  Kipping is fine, but you will never reach your full strength potential until your Strict Pull Ups are solid.
