Tips

  1. Arms should never come out of their sockets when hanging down.
  2. Pause at the top and then slowly lower down in a controlled manner. Remember the decent (the negative portion of the workout) is still working your muscles so it is important to treat it as such and not just let yourself fall back down.
  3. Do not swing back-and-forth. Try to keep your body perfectly perpendicular to the floor.

Variations

  1. Adjust grip on a straight bar (i.e. underhand, overhand, mixed grip).
  2. Wear a weighted vest.
  3. If it is too difficult perform chin-up on an assisted chin-up machine.
