Narrow Parallel Grip Chin-ups

This is an exercise similar to the regular Chin Up but focuses more on shoulder strengthening.


  1. Grasp the bar with an supinated (overhand) grip so that your palms are facing.
  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.
  5. Repeat


Ensure that your body remains in one line throughout this exercise.
