One question that I get asked an awful lot by people is how to do a chin up. One of the most basic, yet essential exercises you can ever do! Chin Ups & Pull Ups RULE!
Here is the thing, most people avoid doing them like the plaque because they are hard, really hard, and well, it’s so much easier to just sit down and do pull downs. I mean 190lb pull down is the same as me doing a chin up since I weigh 190lb right?
Lets be clear here, Chin ups & Pull Ups are FAR SUPERIOR exercises than any variation of pull downs. Not to say pull downs don’t have their place, they do, but for the most part chins are better, way better.
My guess is that you may have tried to do a chin or two, couldn’t do it, gave up on it, and went to the lat pull down machine. Well I am going to share with you 3 tips that drastically helped me with my chin ups & pull ups.
I can now usually get 20-25 chins any day. I have 2 turn biceps (one bicep sugery for a complete tendon rupture), and the other a partial tendon tear. If i can do 25 chin ups, YOU can do them as well! At my best I did 30 chin ups and 2 reps with 100 lbs strapped to my waist.
Here is the first video tip of 3 that will really aid you in getting a chin up or getting many chin ups!
