This is a more advanced version of the basic Chin Up. The closer grip provides more development on the shoulders.
- Grasp the bar with an supinated (overhand) grip so that your palms are facing.
- Let your body hang from the bar with your arms straight.
- Slowly pull yourself up so that your chin is higher than the bar.
- With a controlled movement lower yourself to the starting position.
- Your legs should stay in line with your torso throughout this exercise.
