2. 5 WAYS WITH A PULL UP BAR
(1) Standard Chin-up
Grab the bar with a shoulder-width grip, palms facing you. Pull yourself up until your chin is level with the bar, then slowly lower until your arms are fully extended. If you can't initially do full chin-ups and pull-ups, work up to them using moves 5 and 6.
(2) Climber Pull-up
Hang with a shoulder-width grip, palms facing forwards, and pull your weight straight up. Through the top half of the move, shift your weight to the right and aim your chin towards your right hand. Lower, and repeat to the left side.
(3) Gironda Sternum Chin-up
Hold the bar with your palms facing you and arch your back as you pull yourself upwards. Lean your head back and continue lifting until the bar touches your chest. Slowly reverse the movement.
(4) Hanging Leg Raises
Hold the bar with your palms facing you. Lift yourself off the floor but keep your arms extended and your torso stable, then slowly bend at the hips and lift your legs until they are parallel with the floor.
(5) Hanging Reverse Shoulder Shrugs
Hold the bar with your palms facing you. Keeping your arms straight, lift up slightly by shrugging your shoulders down and away from your ears. Perform the repetitions quickly in order to isolate your traps.
