The Perfect Exercise

My favorite exercise? The pull up, of course. Pull ups challenge and develop your back muscles. These muscles include the rhomboids, the latissimus dorsi, the trapezius, and even the deeper muscles that run along your spine (the rector spinae). Pull ups are effective for building your biceps and building stronger arms. I have always struggled with pull ups. I know a lot of it has to do with my scapular strength. Make sure to engage your scapula before doing pull ups. 

I am thinking about getting my own pull up bar at home. That's because I believe the pull up is the best upper body exercise you can do. 

Tomorrow I'm off from going to the gym so I am thinking about driving up to the Virginia Capital Trail and biking from the Four Mile Creek Park to the Malvern Hill Battlefield. Stay tuned ....
