Starting position

Grasp the pull bar using an underhand (supinated) grip, head slightly up, hands about shoulders-width apart, elbows slightly bent and pointing forward.


Do a pull up by pulling your chin towards the bar. Then come back slowly to the starting position. Your segments’ length, your strength, and your shoulders’ mobility will determine how high you can pull yourself up.
