Overview

The weighted pull-up is a more advanced variation of the pull-up exercise in which the lifter adds extra weight to their body. Options for adding weight include a dip belt, weighted vest, chains, a dumbbell placed between the feet or legs, or looping a kettlebell over the foot. Like other pull-up variations, the weighted pull-up builds strength and muscle in the upper back, biceps, and core.

Alternatives

These alternative exercises can be used as substitutes when the original exercise is unavailable or challenging to perform due to various reasons such as equipment limitations, injuries, or personal preferences.
