Rick Osbourne Says If You Can Do One Pull Up You’ll Never Be Obese

On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on Rick Osbourne, a former Physical Educator who wants to help kids immunize themselves from obesity by coaching them how to do a pull up. He says that if you can do just one pull up then you will never be obese. Rick’s obesity prevention strategy happened kind of by accident. Once he discovered the relationship between the ability to do pull ups and obesity he put together a program that helps people build enough strength to do a pull up.  You start with assisted pull ups then slowly progress until you can do pull ups with out any assistance. He thinks the pull up test should replace BMI because it is easier for people to understand and quantify. Rick wants you to be Strong at Everything Weak at Nothing. So how many pull ups can you do?
