The complete system, priced at $99.95 suggested retail is available at over 20,000 retail outlets through the United States and includes one adjustable Pullup bar, two swing arms, two rotating handles, ab straps, and a 21-day workout created by founder and former Navy SEAL Alden Mills.
Easy to install into any standard door frame, the Perfect Pullup enables the body to move more naturally, minimizes joint strain, achieves better results in a faster time period and utilizes functional training. â€œIt’s the most unique product of its kind because it takes one of the toughest basic exercises, the pullup, and makes it doable for consumers of any fitness level,â€ said Alden Mills, CEO and founder of Perfect Pushup.
â€œPerfect Pullup is far more than a fitness product,â€ continued Mills. â€œIt can be the beginning of a healthier lifestyle. In a tough economy, consumers find comfort in being fit and staying healthy. We are focused on giving consumers easy options for taking the first steps to making these changes or adjusting to what they are already doing. Our products are about simple natural movements that can produce solid results, leaving customers energized and
A pullup is an upper body compound pulling exercise where the body is suspended by extended arms, then pulled up until the elbows are bent and the head is higher than the hands, utilizing an overhand (pronated) grip. Pull-ups specifically target the Latissimus Dorsi in the back and biceps in the arms, though many other muscles are involved in the movement, including shoulders and chest.
The pull-up and chin-up are both considered a callisthenic exercise that increases body strength and flexibility using the weight of one’s own body for resistance. Repeated motions of calisthenics done over an extended period of time will build muscle endurance and total body fitness.
â€œPull-ups are one of the best exercises consumers can do for overall strength building,â€ said Mills. â€œOur products not only resonate with fitness devotees but also enable those just beginning a fitness program to easily grasp the movement and stay committed to their fitness regimens.â€
