Chin-Ups are done on a pull-up and are similar to pull-ups with the only difference being you grab the bar with your palms facing you and as a distance of slightly less than shoulder-width apart. A chin-up starts in the full hanging position – you pull yourself up so that your chin is at least at bar level. You then return to the full-hanging position. This is one repetition. Don’t be a clown and only lower yourself a few inches. That is not how to do them!

This is a great exercise for the upper-back and biceps.


Starting Position (Full Hanging Position)


Finishing Position (Chin at bar level – minimum) – As you get better at this, hit your upper-chest on the bar
