Pull Ups, Underhand Grip

Type: Back
Pull ups (also known as chin ups) are the classic bodyweight exercise and are often used by exercisers as a measure of personal fitness. It's a difficult exercise to do and requires a large amount of upper body strength. If you are a beginner it's likely you will have to work up to being able to do pull ups correctly.

Pull Ups, Underhand Grip Steps:

Step 1:
Grasp the handles of the chin up bar at shoulder width with an underhand grip.

Step 2:
Lift the feet clear from the ground, brace the abdominals and back muscles to maintain a straight back.

Step 3:
Breath in and pull your body up towards the bar until your chin is in line with the bar.

Step 4:
Pause briefly and gradually lower yourself back down to the start position.

Top Tip:

  • If you find pull ups difficult, there are various gym machines now that use counter weights as an aid to gradually help you gain the strength to do body weight pull ups.
  • The alternative is to get a friend to assist you by supporting your knees, or you can support your feet with a bench or stability ball.
