    Grab a pullup bar with one palm facing your body, the other facing away from your body, and your hands shoulder-width apart. Allow your arms to hang in a fully extended position.

    Keeping your shoulders down and away from your ears, pull yourself up until your chin clears 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.
