The scapular pull-up is a training essential in the Hörst gym! Keeping your shoulders healthy and developing proper movement patterns in pulling motions demands the ability to forcefully depress, rotate, and retract the scapula. Regular use of this isolation exercise will develop better kinesthetic awareness of your scapula position and enable you to climb harder and longer with good form, despite growing fatigue. Furthermore, being able to quickly and forcibly engage the lower trapezius and latissimus muscles will empower you to keep your scapula in proper position when campus training and lunging—therefore, the scapular pull-up is an excellent preparatory or gateway exercise for campus board training.
In this video you’ll learn how to do the scapular pull-up as well as the more advanced “scapular pull-up PLUS” variation.
