    Keeping your shoulders down and away from your ears, pull yourself up until your chest touches the bar. Pause, then slowly lower yourself to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Keep your chest up and shoulders back.
  • Drive your elbows behind you to prevent pulling through your wrists.
  • Alternate grips each set.
