Venice Beach probably made them famous.
It is a wonderful place to visit on your Southern California sojourn.
The team at visitcalifornia.com educate, “Abutting Santa Monica’s south side on the Pacific Coast Highway, Venice Beach—or simply Venice—was developed as a Los Angeles beach resort that paid homage to its Italian namesake with canals, piazzas, pedestrian bridges, a lagoon, and a colonnaded business district. Designed by eccentric millionaire Abbot Kinney in 1905, Venice’s original waterways and charming beach cottages can still be seen on Dell Avenue in the Venice Canal Historic District.”
See what we mean.
What an incredibly charming place to visit.
They add, “Today’s Venice, though, is more famous for quirky happenings on its iconic beachfront boardwalk, where mimes, jugglers, musicians, and street performers of all kinds inhabit an ever-changing and unforgettable bohemian subculture.”
Including body builders.
We have seen them on film and heard about them, working out at the beach and at some point doing pullups on outdoor pullup bars.
The wonderful thing about working out to be fit and become a strong competitive female submission wrestler is that you have myriads of workout pathways to accomplish your goals.
If you want stronger muscles for your wrestling, pullups can be extremely helpful.
Pullups are important for wrestlers as it trains the muscles responsible for the pulling motion, which is important when it comes to controlling your opponent and taking them down to the mats, mount them and attempt a submission.
A pull-up is an upper-body strength exercise.
As far as our personal experience, pullups can be very challenging but they are a nice alternative to heavy weights to build up shoulder strength.
Very important, whenever you are engaging in a new exercise or sport for the first time, please consult with your physician first.
Time to turn to some experts.
First, in book form.

Why Pullups Are the Best Bodyweight Exercise For Upper Body Strength
By Rick Porter
If you are looking for a great way to build upper body strength look no further. The pullup is one of the best bodyweight exercises you can do to add strength to your upper body. It has versatility to work a wide range of muscles from your lats and biceps to the rear delts and even your abs. Here are a few variations of the pull-up to build muscle and strength in your body fast.
Do Pullups instead of Seated Pulldowns
One reason the pullup is often neglected by many in favor of the pulldown machines in the gym is because most people simply aren’t strong enough to do a pullup. Don’t get caught in the trap of sticking with the pulldown machines and never advancing to pullups because those exercises aren’t even in the same league. Pulldowns isolate your upper back more and the rest of your body so there isn’t much stabilization work going on in your abdominals. If you can’t do a full pullup you are better off starting off with the pullup assist machine because that will at least require more work from your stabilizer muscles.
Do Pullups at Home
Pullups can be done at home very easily and if you don’t have a place to put a bar I suggest getting an Iron Gym Pull-up bar because it easily fits into just about any door frame. Once you have a pullup bar in place at home you can do them several times per week just taking a few minutes out of your day to complete a few sets.
Do a wide variety of grip styles to develop the upper back muscles from all angles. Do a chin up using a reverse grip to put the biceps into a stronger position which can be helpful if you are new to pullups. Chin ups are great for developing bigger arms and will build muscle fast on the biceps.
Some bars have grips facing in allowing a grip where the palms face each other. This is another excellent variation for building upper body muscle. The standard wide pull up grip is the most difficult and requires very strong biceps. Make sure to start the movement by pulling with the upper back muscles instead of the arms. This takes some practice but if you think of pulling back with your elbows it may help you make the mental connection. Form is key here so that you don’t tire out the biceps before the back gets worked hard enough.
