How To: Performing a chin up can be very challenging for many people. If you find that you can only perform little to no chin ups, it means you need to strengthen your muscles. Try to use a supported chin up machine when you are at the gym or have someone hold your legs to help you. My favorite way is using a ‘pulse movement’. This means you stand with your feet flat at the same time as gripping the chin up bar. Use your feet to hop up. You then slowly lower yourself down (without using the support under your feet).
Muscles Used: Latissimus Dorsi, Biceps, Trapezius, Rhomboids, Levator, Scapulae, Teres Major, Posterior Deltoid, Core.
