Horizontal Pull-Up

This  is a bodyweight exercise ideally suited as a compliment to any of the  many pushing exercises ; bench press, incline press, push-ups, etc.,  that are regularly performed in a gym environment. The horizontal  pull-up is done with the exerciser in a horizontal or modified  horizontal, face-up position with hands roughly shoulder width apart on a  bar which is roughly three feet or more high or using a TRX or similar  piece of equipment. The degree of difficulty of the exercise is  dependent upon the angle of the exerciser’s body with the exercise  becoming easier the more upright the body is kept and more difficult the  closer one gets to the horizontal position. In the following pictures  we have three sequences of this exercise:  easy, moderate, and  difficult.
