🚨 HOW TO CHIN UPS
✅ Probably one of my favorite upper body movement together with the pull ups. Great for shoulder health, your lats, upper back & biceps development.
✅ This exercise is also easier for most people – when compared to a pull up – which is why I’d suggest you to start off with these, if getting a pull up is one of your goals.
Anyway, set yourself under the bar with a double supinated grip around shoulder width.
I always like to start the exercise with a protraction of the shoulder blades (letting them lose) and then proceed to retract and depress them (lock them down and back) before I pull myself up, but you can definitely “stay tight” with your scapulas through the whole set. It might help you get a few more reps in.
❌❌❌ If you don’t do it at all though, chances are you’ll get some form of shoulder injury in the long term because of the internal rotation of the shoulder, oh and with no actual lat development. Do not cheat your reps and make sure you’re doing everythin correctly!
