Coach's Tips

It is recommended for those who find pull-up too easy. Be careful of injuries and go up so that your chest touches the bar!

How to

Starting Position

1. Stand underneath a chin-up bar with a weight belt securely fastened around your waist. 2. Reach up and grab the bar with a shoulder-width, overhand grip (palms facing away from you). 3. Keep your feet together, core engaged, and back straight.

Proper Form

1. Pull your body up to the bar until your chin is over the bar. 2. Slowly lower your body back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your body to the starting position. 2. Exhale as you pull your body up to the bar.

Precautions

1. Make sure the weight belt is securely fastened around your waist. 2. Keep your core engaged and back straight throughout the entire exercise. 3. Avoid jerky movements or swinging your body to help you reach the bar. 4. Start with a light weight and gradually increase the weight as your strength increases.
