THE ULTIMATE PULL-UP PROGRAM
The Secret to a Sculpted Upper Body
AND Untapped Strength
Without using anything other than what you were born with,
you can have both.
Unfortunately, you see very few women banging out pull-ups, as many women have been falsely led to believe that they are not capable of performing them. Many others are not training for pull-ups in a way that is conducive to success. Most of the females you tend to see thriving at pull-ups are elite athletes in their twenties or early thirties.
Not Evelyn, though. She happens to be in her late fifties, and can routinely perform a minimum of six pull-ups on a dime. At a time when most people attribute their lack of ability to aging, Evelyn is putting them to shame.
When Evelyn first came to me, she was suffering from debilitating neck and back discomfort.
Life certainly wasn’t easy for her. Forget doing pull-ups. Getting groceries, walking her dog, and performing regular daily tasks were, quite literally, a pain in the neck.
So, when Evelyn and I started working together, not only did I have the challenge of helping her reach her goal—the ability to do a pull-up—but I was also on a mission to help her rebuild her body so that she could properly achieve this goal for the first time in her life. Evelyn accomplished her goal, and we did so as a team.
What did this involve?
Proper Body Positioning
Before Evelyn touched the pull-up bar, we practiced the raw technique of a proper pull-up and worked on mastering the basics.
Think of your body as a chain. When all of the links in this chain are strong, your ability to perform most exercises, including pull-ups, should dramatically improve. You do not want a weak link in your chain, and this applies to your entire body. If your core is weak, and the core includes all of the muscles in your body aside from your arms and legs, your ability to perform pull-ups will likely suffer.
Mastering The Fundamentals
And Following The Key Steps
Many people make the mistake of trying to go from A-Z, and do not follow the essential steps that will actually help them improve their pull-up technique, full body strength, controlled mobility, and stability/tension. As a result, they fail to excel at achieving their pull-up specific goals. Depending on where your starting point is, performing the appropriate pull-up regressions, horizontal pulling exercises, scapula/shoulder controlled mobility exercises, lumbo-pelvic stability exercises, grip exercises, and even lower body exercises, and only progressing when you are ready, will better prepare you to conquer the pull-up. Many people skip key steps and wonder why they aren’t making progress, get frustrated, and quit. Don’t make this mistake. Be patient, and the results will pay off.
So back to Evelyn, all of her training was done progressively, systematically, and consistently, and she reached her goal. In fact, she blew her goal of one pull-up out of the water. Now she is able to perform six. As an unintended bonus, her debilitating back and neck discomfort were gone. She also sculpted the muscles in her upper body, and felt more empowered than ever. With that in mind, it’s time to reevaluate your game plan.
The Ultimate Pull-Up Program
Why these four common exercises aren’t the solution.
If you search the internet for an article on how to get better at pull-ups, you run into the same tips every single time. But there’s a better way.
2. Machine Assisted Pull-Ups – This is similar to the band assisted pull-up, but in this exercise, your body is actually doing even less work than in the band assisted pull-up. In this variation, you go up to the machine, select the weight you want to assist you, put your knees on the pad, and go to town.
4. Lat Pull-Downs – This is probably the least specific of all exercises relating to your pull-up progress.
Why don’t these exercises work the way they should?
There are a few reasons:
There is no mention of glute strength. Yes, believe it or not, you need a strong butt to master the pull-up.
There is very little attention devoted to core strength. After you’ve performed pull-ups, you might notice that your “abs” are a little sore or at least feel tired. When you’re performing an actual pull-up, all of the muscles in your torso that surround your spine must work to keep your body stable and from swinging, and help you travel to and from the bar with ease.
There is also very little attention devoted to the muscles that control the movement of your shoulder blades, otherwise known as the scapulae. If these very influential muscles aren’t strong enough, and if you aren’t able to own the movement of your shoulder blades, you will likely struggle to perform a proper pull-up, or at the very least your form will be sloppy. The goal of this program is to help you perform many pull-ups, with outstanding form, and while keeping your body healthy.
While the pull-up is often thought of as an upper body exercise, it is actually a full body exercise.
Without strong core muscles, including the very influential glutes and the muscles that control the movement of your shoulder blades, your pull-up performance will likely suffer.
Once you tackle the above components, your path to dominating the pull-up will be much easier.
That’s why I made….
The Ultimate Pull-Up Program (NEW and Improved)
The Ultimate Pull-Up Program, which I have spent countless months perfecting, is an extremely comprehensive 160+ page master program that will help you solve many of the problems that are preventing you from excelling at or being able to perform pull-ups in the first place. I am extremely proud of The Ultimate Pull-Up Program. It is a game-changer.
The Ultimate Pull-Up Program is a four phase program that will lead you not only to pull-up mastery, but also to a striking silhouette, and the strength to go with it.
The Ultimate Pull-Up Program will progressively and systematically help you strengthen your entire body, and develop the requisite level of technique, so you will be able to dominate your pull-ups. Each phase will last roughly four to eight weeks, and in each phase, you will:
1. Improve your pull-up technique, so you can perform them efficiently
2. Improve your upper body strength, so reaching the bar isn’t so daunting and intimidating
3. Improve your upper body muscle tone/hypertrophy, so you have the ability to perform many pull-ups
4. Improve your scapular and shoulder controlled mobility, so you can travel to and from the bar with no fear
5. Improve your grip strength, so you have the hang time needed to perform multiple reps and sets
6. Improve your core and glute strength, so you leave yourself with no weak links
7. Improve your lower body strength, so your glutes, quads, and hamstrings are stronger than they’ve ever been and don’t hold you back.
Just like they did for Evelyn.
#1) Exercises for improving grip strength
#2) Exercises for addressing shoulder health (stability and/or controlled mobility)
#3) Exercises for addressing elbow health
#4) Fundamental beginners section on breathing
#5) Fundamental beginners section on bracing
All of these exercises will help improve your ability to perform pull-ups and will help keep your body feeling good (or at least help improve how it feels). Since I’ve added these exercises into my training, I’ve never felt better, and my pull-up performance has skyrocketed!
Like all of the exercises in The UPUP, these include detailed written descriptions, videos, and photos.

So just who am I?
I have been a strength coach for over 15 years and have been a competitive athlete for over 25 years. I’m not just a coach who helps people get strong. I am incredibly passionate about what I do and for good reason.
Evelyn’s story, in many ways, is my story too.
When I was 28, I was in a bad car accident. This led to over five years of major body dysfunctions, various injuries, and endless heartache and frustration. I never thought there would be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Despite many low points and moments of doubt, I persevered until I found a solution, and in the process, learned a tremendous amount about myself.
Going through this lengthy ordeal made me realize how much I had been taking my health for granted. I also realized what gifts the ability to work out and simply move are. Once I made my comeback, so to speak, I decided that I wanted my workouts to be effective, but also extremely fun, empowering, and liberating. I also decided that I wanted my physical strength to more closely match my mental strength. To me, pull-ups accomplish all of the above and so much more. I want you to experience the same feelings and results.
Now, I’m sharing my methods with you.
Why The Ultimate Pull-Up Program Is Like No Other
You wouldn’t be the first to think that. But then again, everyone else felt the same way.
What Some Of My Clients & Customers Have Said About The Ultimate Pull-Up Program
Zero To Ten Pull-Ups In 8 Months
“I did it! Ten overhand grip strict pull-ups. It’s taken me 8 months of consistent hard work, sweat, and some tears to get from zero to ten. Pull-Ups are an incredible total body exercise involving so much more than your back. This video shows the end result, but there were many different exercises I needed to do to improve my core and lumbo-pelvic stability as well as grip strength and scapular mobility.
A few months into my training, I was fortunate to find Meghan and her Ultimate Pull-up Program. I don’t mean to sound like an ad, but, I honestly don’t think I could have achieved my 10 without this program and her specific guidance. She is the real deal and I’m so grateful.”
“Whether you are doing lots of pull-ups or just wanting to get that first pull-up…This is the amazing program that you need.
Sure there are lots of programs out there. But I can tell you (being a trainer for so many years) there is not one like this.
There is not a single question I thought of that she hadn’t answered already. It is all in the program. The tutorials are amazing the written instructions are amazing. Everything is there that you need and you are going to succeed!”
Owner of Emily Ledford Fitness & Nutrition, LLC
”I am in my late 50’s, and have been working with Meghan for several years. I have always had the goal of being able to do proper pull-ups. When I first started working with Meghan, I was barely able to perform any reps, and the reps I did were not done with very good form. Meghan taught me that the pull-up is a full body exercise, and that the entire body needs to be working together. She also made me appreciate the importance of using proper form, mastering the basics, and following the right progressions. Now I am able to perform multiple reps of pull-ups (up to 10 chin-ups and 6 pull-ups), and I can even perform a few advanced variations. This is incredibly empowering, and my body feels amazing. I’ve even had other women at the gym compliment me on my pull-ups, and say that they wish they were able to do them as well.”
”I have been working with Meghan for just over a year. While I am in my 70s, I have always had the goal of being able to perform an unassisted pull-up. While I am not quite there yet, I have made a significant amount of progress. I have also been performing many other pull-up regressions, and other full body exercises that will help me achieve my ultimate goal.
Update: Sue can now do two unassisted chin-ups, and is SO close to being able to do her first unassisted pull-up. She’s 75 years old.”
**As I talked about above, band assisted pull-ups can be extremely useful if they are executed to perfection, but they are only a small piece of the puzzle to being able to perform pull-ups.
”I trained with Meghan around 2 years ago. At this time I was looking to improve my own training, specifically my pull-ups. Within one month of training I was able to go from barely getting 1 pull-up to being able to perform 3-4 pull-ups. I still follow the principals in Meghan’s Ultimate Pull-Up Program and just this month I had a PR of 8 body weight pull-ups and did my first weighted pull-up with a 10kg kettlebell. Not only that but the quality and form of my pull-ups has significantly improved. Two years ago I would never have imagined I’d be able to do a weighted pull-up and I owe it to Meghan for providing me with not only the training but also the education that was missing from my own program.”
What Some Of The Top Coaches In The Worldwide Fitness Industry Have Said
“The pull-up is one of the more challenging and complex movements in the gym. I rarely see it done correctly and I never see it prepared for properly. Poor form and faulty planning leads to a lack of results with this movement. I’ve only come across one resource that has laid out a program and plan that will help you to develop results in your efforts to build a better pull-up. Don’t waste your time looking at other programs, the Ultimate Pull-Up Program is it, game over. You will learn how to build your body for the pull-up movement in a comprehensive way that takes into account far more than just your upper body. You won’t be disappointed and you will be doing the pull-ups you’ve wanted to do thanks to Meghan and this program.”

“Meghan Callaway is the real deal. There are very few people I’m jealous of. It’s true. For the most part, I consider myself in an individual league of excellence, and few people can touch or surpass me. But truth be told? I met my match and then some in Meghan Callaway. She is strong, moral, and kind all at the same time. She is truly what it means to be a renaissance woman. If I was in some sort of virtual medieval time, and I had to select who I had to fight on my behalf, I’d elect Meghan Callaway. She’s that level of nobility and strength tied in one package. If you’re looking for someone to teach and guide you through your journey, you’re lucky to land on this page and in the teachings of Callaway.”

“I’ve followed Meghan’s work for years and am always impressed at how thorough and knowledgeable she is when it comes to fitness. She digs deep into subject matter, offers tremendous insight in all areas regarding coaching– from technique and progressions to emotional support and compassion – and is likely one of the most innovative coaches when it comes to leveling up any exercise. In the past year I’ve gotten to know Meghan on a more personal level and she’s just as genuine of a friend as she is a coach. She often shares with me videos of her clients’ progress and I am in awe of what is accomplished. She empowers people to defy odds and take on challenges they likely never thought possible. Yet she does so with great care and support. Anyone is lucky to have Meghan as a coach and I know her passion for fitness resonates well in her pull-up program. It’s like having her at your side every step of the way.”

“When I think of secret government agents who kick ass and take names, I think of Jason Bourne. When I think of chin-up/pull-up badassery, I think of Meghan Callaway. There aren’t many coaches out there who do more walking of the walk than she.
Meghan’s a coach I respect a ton and the quality of her content (and character) is unparalleled by most. She’s also someone I would seek out to lead me through the zombie apocalypse: what she can do in the weight room is astounding. She’s the real deal.”
-Tony Gentilcore, CSCS
“Meghan Callaway is one of the few professional coaches in the industry that not only innovates the way her clients train, but can turn around and create powerful content and programming based on real life success. When it comes to busting the notorious female pull up struggle, Meghan is my go-to source.”

She makes her mark and leaves everything she touches better than it was before she started, whether it’s through her writing, videos, or her own programs/coaching.

Now, we get to the important question.
How much does The Ultimate Pull-Up Program cost?
To give you an idea, if you were to work with me in person, I would charge $125 an hour.
The program is four phases, so if we were to do this in person, you would be looking at a minimum of $2,000. Cost aside, to make this happen, you’d have to make sure our schedules aligned in just the perfect way.
But with The Ultimate Pull-Up Program, the work is done for you. All you have to do is follow this program, and at your own pace.
You will get all four phases of The Ultimate Pull-up Program for just $97.
In addition to the four phase programming, you will also get a bonus section:
The Eleven Best Pull-up Variations for Continued Progress
Most programs get you to the goal and desert you. I want you to thrive and reach the heights of strength and empowerment you never thought possible.
Furthermore, once you master the pull-up, the bonus section will carry you beyond.
To help you out, here’s a list of frequently asked questions:
Can’t I find this stuff for free on the internet? — Of course you can. Good luck sorting out the gold from the refuse, figuring out how to perform the exercises correctly, and determining how to progress in a way that will lead you to your goal of performing one or many pull-ups.
How do I know it’s worth it? $97 is a lot of money! — Your other option is to see question one, or you can come see me in Canada, spend a minimum of $2,000 and work with me in person.
What if the exercises are too advanced for me? — You get to keep this program FOREVER. You get to work at your own pace. Not only that, there are scaled down versions of these exercises so that I can meet you where you are. This is for all skill levels.
Okay, but what if the exercises are too easy? — I didn’t forget about you prodigies either. In addition to having scaled down versions of the exercises, I also included more challenging progressions throughout each phase.
Why should I even care about doing a pull-up? — The pull-up is one of the most effective and empowering exercises you will do. This versatile exercise will help you strengthen and sculpt your upper body; it also requires minimal equipment, and can be performed anywhere. As many people get older, they start attributing their lack of ability to their age. Women like Evelyn never did. In fact, they owned their age. They refused to succumb to the muscle loss and degeneration that are associated with “aging.”
