MADISON, Wis., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- LifelineUSA, a leading manufacturer of professional-grade functional fitness accessories, introduces the Pullup Revolution™ – a groundbreaking home fitness product that taps into the skyrocketing popularity of bodyweight exercises. The Pullup Revolution gives consumers up to 100 lbs. of adjustable power assistance, which dramatically increases the number of pullups they can perform during a single workout session.  By using the Pullup Revolution regularly, consumers can increase their pullup strength more than 70 percent in 60 days.



"Pullups are the gold standard for building upper body strength; however, the vast majority of Americans can't do a single pullup," said Bill Sotis, president and chief executive officer of LifelineUSA. "With the Pullup Revolution, almost everyone can add pullups to their workout routine – regardless of their current fitness level."

A recent performance study showed that using the Pullup Revolution five times per week for five minutes per day resulted in a 73 percent average increase in pullup strength after 60 days. By the end of the study, 44 percent of the testers were able to do their first unassisted pullups.

The Pullup Revolution helps users build lean muscle faster because they are able to:

1) Increase the number of pullup exercises they can perform in a single workout session;

2) Improve the quality of the exercises they can do;

3) Perform more advanced exercises, such as levers, one-arm pull-ups and circles; and

4) Complete a full-body workout that includes lunges and pushups in under 20 minutes.

The days of having to go to the gym to use the assistive pullup machine are over. The Pullup Revolution allows users to perform assisted pullup exercises from the privacy and convenience of their home or anywhere there's a secure pullup bar.

The key to the Pullup Revolution's unrivaled performance is its patented triple cable pocket design, which utilizes three 16-inch cables to provide up to 100 lbs. of assistance. Once the product is clipped onto a securely fastened pullup bar, the assistance can be adjusted easily by changing the length of the support strap or removing one cable. All adjustments can be made very quickly and help ensure each exercise performed with the Pullup Revolution is providing optimal fitness benefits.

"It's extremely gratifying to see clients do their first pullup," said Jon Hinds, owner of the Monkey Bar Gym and one of the country's premier functional fitness trainers. "The Pullup Revolution's innovative design helps my clients build strength faster and maximizes the results they achieve using a pullup bar."

To ensure consumers get the most from the Pullup Revolution, a DVD containing set-up instructions and two total-body workouts is included. The product retails for $49.99 and is currently available at sporting goods and specialty fitness retailers nationwide, as well as online at
