Chin Ups

This is an extremely good exercise for upper arm and middle back strengthening.


  1. Grasp the bar with an supinated (overhand) grip.
  2. Let your body hang from the bar with your arms straight.
  3. Slowly pull yourself up so that your chin is higher than the bar.
  4. With a controlled movement lower yourself to the starting position.


Ensure to contract your back and core muscles throughout this exercise to prevent injury and to maximise the effectiveness of the exercise.
