Pull-ups are a great way to work your upper body, they work many muscle groups such as your lats, traps, rhomboids, biceps and forearms. You can use a bar but straps force you to control your body and make you do the pull-ups with just muscle and not momentum.
I made this instructable because I've been getting a ton of those belts with the shorts I buy, but since I have a nickel allergy I am unable to wear the majority of them. So I had a crazy idea one day to make pull-up straps with some of them. They support my weight just fine and I weigh 150 lbs. I also like to wear gloves when I do the pull-ups as they prevent the straps from sawing on my hands.
Step 1: Supplies
-"D" Ring Belt (2x)
-Sturdy Tree Limb or something solid and horizontal above the ground
Step 2: Creating the Hand Holds
So get out there and get to work! Get swoll!
