Pull Up Program

(17 customer reviews)


Time to get your first pull up!

Looking to get your first pull up? Look no further! This program will help you build upper body strength specifically for pull ups while including general upper body strengthening and prehab (isolated exercises for general shoulder health and injury prevention)!

By purchasing this program you are agreeing to the , , and .


How long will it take me?

The program is designed for 3 days per week, about 45 min per workout, and about 6-8 weeks. Total length of the program may vary based on your current level/strength. The first week or two may take a little longer as you learn the exercises, but it should get faster as you learn the exercises and no longer have to watch the videos!

What makes this different than other pull up programs?

In addition to working on drills and specific strengthening for pull ups, this program includes generalized upper body strengthening and isolation exercises for some of the rotator cuff and muscles that assist with scapular stability (aka important small muscles for overall shoulder health) to reduce risk of injury and help keep your shoulders healthy!

What equipment do I need?

You’ll need access to a pull up bar and big looped bands. If you need bands, I use Rubberbanditz 41″ bands (code LAURA10 gives you a discount). I recommend getting a 5-15 lb band for prehab/more isolated injury prevention exercises and then a heavier band or two based on your current strength.

Can I do this with my other program(s)?

You can add this to another lower body &/or core program, but I would recommend not performing another program at the same time that includes upper body work to allow proper recovery of your upper body for maximal strength gains! Remember recovery is just as important as your training to gain strength!  This pairs well with the Pistol Squat Program of Hip Prehab Program.

Will it be too hard or too easy for me?

You should be able to perform a dead hang on a bar for 10 seconds to do the program! It is designed to have some variability based on your current level (e.g. increased/decreased resistance/assistance, rep ranges, etc.). If you just got your first pull up, you can also use this program to increase your upper body strength to increase your reps, but if you can already do 6-8 unassisted pull ups with good form, it may be too easy for you. If you still have more questions, feel free to shoot me an email at paradigmofperfection@gmail.com!

How does the program help with form and progression?

When you purchase the program you get access to the written program and detailed individual exercise videos. These videos go into common compensations and corrections for each exercise and have a written detailed description of the exercise, common error, and corrections. To ensure progressions, you are given rep ranges and a place to track resistance/assistance and the number of reps. The goal is to either decrease assistance, increase resistance, or increase the number of reps each time you perform a specific exercise! The program allows you to easily track this so you don’t have to remember what you did the last time!

What kind of support do I get?

Feel free to reach out via email if you have any questions throughout the program.  You also get access to the Facebook community page to work through the program with others, share wins, ask questions, etc!  If you’d like, you can even post videos in the Facebook group of exercises that are in your program to get feedback on form!

How much is it?

$45 USD. I wanted to make a more accessible program for those who are unable to do my individualized workout programs or consult calls for whatever reason!

What if I don’t like the program?

As you receive the program once you purchase it, no refunds will be given. If you have any questions about if the program is right for you, please email paradigmofperfection@gmail.com with any questions you have!

  1. Sophie

    Before starting the program I was already able to do 3 pull ups but given that I was stuck at this number for years I tought I give this progam a try. It was completely worth it – I’ve doubeled the number already! The videos that come with the program are super helpful and there is a large variety of exercices included, which is very nice!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Ahh yay!! So excited to hear about your progress! Keep up the hard work!

  2. Barbara

    I’ve always been very strong in my lower body and never trained my upper body. Yes I managed to do 4 pull ups at a stretch initially however my form was completely off.
    I’m now 6 weeks into this program. Both myself and others have noticed a difference in my upper body definition and strength.
    Laura’s program is well rounded to work all upper body parts and not to overload the joints whilst still making you stronger. The program including the videos is super informative and userfriendly. I already know now that I will continue to incorporate these exercises in my workout schedule lifelong. I would advice anybody to try them and I will definitely recommend them to friends.

    • paradigmofperfection

      Nice work Barbara!! This is super exciting – form is so important! I’m so happy you learned tools along the way to incorporate going forward in your training as well.

  3. Agna

    Wonderful program with clear video explanations and helpful tips(on form etc.). Definitely recommended!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you Agna!

  4. Blanche

    This program was super helpful ! I started the program with 0 pull up and was able to finish at 11 ! I saw results from week to week and added an other pull up rep almost each week. Thank you Laura for this amazing program !

    • paradigmofperfection

      This is AMAZING!! Incredible progress!

  5. Sylwia

    I like that each exercise comes with a video and detailed explanation what muscles should be engaged and what mistakes to avoid. Very helpful in learning the right form. This program helped me develop strength needed for pull-ups and took care of “all the tiny muscles” to keep my shoulders healthy.

    • paradigmofperfection

      Glad you found the videos beneficial and clear!

  6. Yasmine

    I really like the program, everything is well explained and to the point. I don’t have a lot of time to plan my workouts, and well, with this program I don’t even need to. There are modifications available for everyone and it is possible to repeat the program over time to keep on progressing. This program can easily be combined with cardio activities such as running, because it focuses on upper body strength. I can only recommend!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Glad to hear you enjoyed the program and it took the programming side of things off your plate!

  7. Kathy Pittinger

    Laura’s pull-up program is amazing. It is professionally created, easy to follow and EFFECTIVE. I love how it is organized and how easy it was for me to print off the training sheets so I could get started immediately! Laura is clear in the way she instructs and her comments are so helpful. I am gaining strength and soon I will be achieving my goal. I am so grateful for this PROGRAM. Thank you, Laura!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Ahh so happy you found it clear and are making progress!!

  8. Jillian

    The most amazing part of ANY of Laura’s is the education you receive. She explains things so well and the content she puts out is so helpful. I’m a coach myself and what I learn through doing these programs, I find myself able to help my clients better. Definitely with this particular program!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you Jillian! I’m glad the videos and program were clear and you were able to learn a lot from them! Even more, I’m happy you’re able to share and apply what you learned! Keep up the hard work!

    After two weeks of the program I am definitely stronger and can nearly do a pull up. I can’t wait till I can do more .

    • paradigmofperfection

      Nice job Viv! So happy to hear you’re making progress with the program! Keep it it up!

  10. Kay

    I’ve purchased this program a while back but never got to work on it , but I started recently and love it. I’m hoping to increase my upper body strength and do more pull-ups .

    • paradigmofperfection

      Glad you’re enjoying the program so far Kay! Keep up the hard work!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you for your review Katya! So happy you found the program and videos helpful!

  12. Andy K

    I purchased the pullup program some time ago. It’s well-written and when I did it consistently I could see results. I recently installed a bar in my office so I look forward to restarting the program. The other benefit I got was better grip strength for hangs…

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you for your review Andy! I’m glad you were able to se progress with the program – excited to hear more about your progress as you revisit the program!

    I really liked this program—I did the first few weeks and was unable to complete DT unrelated shoulder injury but hope I can get back to it. The printouts were nice to track workouts. My only constructive feedback was that you have to log in every time to view the videos and you can’t change the password—so I would have to go digging for it in my email each time I got to the gym. Im sure maybe there is a way to save it? but my phone didn’t give me the option to. Just a minor thing though:)

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you so much for the feedback! The password is on the printout, so you should be able to reference it there as well. You should also be able to bookmark/favorite the page for the playlists (and even label them so it’s a quick click) then save the password so it’s just 2 total clicks to login. If you’re using an iPhone, to bookmark the page, once you’re at the site, there should be a book icon next to the new tab icon in the bottom R corner. From there you can edit your bookmarks, reading list, and favorites by clicking the edit button in the bottom R corner. To save the password, go to settings and search “password” then an “autofill passwords” should pop up and you should be able to add a new password to save in the top R corner with the + icon. Hope that helps, but feel free to reach out if you’re still having issues!

    Quickly got my pull-up count up from 3 to 6, also helped my climbing skills 🙂

    • paradigmofperfection

  15. Juta (verified owner)

    Even though I already could do pull ups I bought Laura’s Pull Up program because I wanted to learn new exercises that would help me to further improve them. I was happy to find a lot of new exercises that have helped me to get even better results. Next for me are the muscle ups:)) Thank you Laura for your support!

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you Juta! I’m so happy you found the program helpful to progress your pull ups more! Can’t wait to hear how you continue to progress! Keep up the hard work!

  16. Camille O.

    While I’m still haven’t achieved my 1st strict body weight pull up this program has helped me gain so much strength. It may be subtle progress but I’m definitely making progress and I am able to do more than I ever thought I could.

    • paradigmofperfection

      Thank you so much for your review Camille! I’m happy the program has helped you progress further toward your pull up! Keep up the hard work!

    Very complex ,harder that I thought I just started but I’ m sure îs going to work.

    • paradigmofperfection

I have just responded to those questions and hopefully those answers will help clarify things a bit for you. Looking forward to hearing your progress as you work through the program and as always, I’m happy to answer any additional questions that may pop up during that process!
