It is not uncommon to see MMA fighters with defined pecs and particularly broad lats. The brawler type heavyweight fighters reach this body composition and structure by relying on upper body and back exercises like pull-ups. Are pull-ups good for MMA?
Doing pull-ups every day because we’ve seen it in a Rocky 6 montage might look great but is it good to do? Some variation of a pull-up should be in your workout routine, but to do it every day goes against a lot of the science. The old saying “less is more” is highly relevant in answering this question. In short, you probably shouldn’t be doing pull-ups every day if your goal is strength, muscle growth, endurance, or to do more pull-ups!
