Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate, under controlled conditions, the results of supplementary pull-up repetitions in junior high school boys. For six weeks at three days a week, forty-five students were divided into a control group which performed pull-up repetitions exclusively, and three experimental groups which performed pull-ups and one supplementary training exercise; the straight arm hang, the bent arm hang, and the simulated pull-up. An analysis of variance of the raw data from the pull -up pre-test showed no significant difference in the initial pull-up performance of the four equated groups. An analysis of variance found no significant differences in the gains between the four groups at the conclusion of the training program. The t tests found that all four groups increased significantly in pull-up performance.
