WIDE GRIP CHIN UPS
Wide Grip Chin Ups
|Alternate Name: -|
|Grab a hold of the chin up bar in a wide grip and cross your legs at your ankles. Hang down for a second or two as you get ready for the initial pull up. This is your starting position.||Pull yourself up until your chin is above the bar. Then, lower yourself back down again but don't fully extend your arms; you should always keep tension in your arms for optimum movement efficiency. |
Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
- Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
- As you get tired, try to perform partial repetitions (get yourself as far up as you can)
- Don't extended your arms completely on the downward portion of the movement
|SPECIAL NOTES & LEVEL of DIFFICULTY VARIATIONS|
|To increase the level of difficulty, slow down the movement or use a dip belt and put a weight plate between your legs or use heavy chains placed around your neck.|
