Speaking from his home gym, McGregor explained:  "Okay, what is up everyone. I’m going to show you a little trick. What I like to utilise for pull-ups. 

"So obviously there are many grips to the pull up. The wide grip, the inside lat grip and the bicep grip. 

"I’m going to focus on the bicep grip right now which a lot of people would consider is the easiest one. It is where most people will start that’s why they probably consider it the easiest one. 

"The truth is whatever you start on, whatever one you work on is going to become to easiest one. Whatever you put the most work in will be the easiest one. 

"Anyway, I go through all the motions, I switch it up different days."
