I have heard and read that pullbars are excellent to develop a good looking body (though the exercises are very hard) however I donīt know what kind of routine I have to do.
Also another question, I go to the GYM, is it good to do about 10-15 minutes of excercises with pullbars before beginning the Gym routine?
Thanks in advance.
With a question like this, you could get a hundred people to respond and all with a different opinion.
By pull bar do you mean a bar above your head for doing pull ups / chin ups?
I could tell you my opinion on what I think you should do, but I don't have nearly enough information on how you train. You said you go to the gym, how often? How do you train now? What is your goal (build bulk, cardio, general fitness, etc. etc.) ?
Pulls ups are an excellent "all around" exercise and hit a lot of muscle groups, most notably the back, the arms, and part of your shoulder. If you do them right your core should also get worked. But if somebody ONLY worked out with a pull bar they'd be missing out on a lot of important things, like cardiovascular ability, legs, and chest. As a rule of thumb, it's never a good idea to make you training exclusive to just one exercise, machine, or activity, you should incorporate many different things for maximum effect.
You could certainly do 10-15mins of pull ups before going to the gym, depending on what you were planning on doing at the gym that day. I wouldn't do a full pull up workout anymore than 3 times a week or you could risk not giving your muscles enough time to recover and develop.
If you could answer some of the questions at the beginning I could try to be more specific.
Here's some info and how to do good pull ups and their variations: Bodybuilding.com - Exercise Of The Week: Pull-ups.
Here's an actual "all pull up" routine that would likely take about 20mins to do. (I wouldn't likely be doing much back work at the gym after a workout like this). http://www.fitness-training-at-home....p-workout.html
Hope this gets you started!
