What are pull ups called?
In past decades, the term pull-up also referred to open-chain pulling exercises done with a barbell. These exercises are now more popularly known as the bent-over row (in the 1950s) and upright row (in the 1970s). Some have associated a “pull-up” with utilizing an overhand (pronated; palms facing away) grip.
The minimum is eight pull-ups with no time limit, but you cannot touch the ground or let go of the bar. You should be able to do 15 to 20 to be competitive.
