The Chin Up is a classic bodyweight exercise that primarily targets the upper body, particularly the biceps, back, and shoulders. This exercise is a great way to build upper body strength and improve overall fitness, making it a popular choice for both beginners and experienced fitness enthusiasts alike. Proper form and technique are essential to getting the most out of this exercise, so be sure to follow the step-by-step procedure carefully. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps for performing a Chin Up with proper form to help you achieve your fitness goals.

How to perform Chin Up

  1. Begin by taking hold of a pull-up bar with a shoulder-width, underhand grip, with your palms facing towards you.
  2. Securely grip the handles and lift your feet off the floor so that your body is now hanging from your grip.
  3. Pull your heels in towards your glutes so that your knees are bent to a 70-90 degree angle and your hips are pushed forwards.
  4. Exhale and initiate the movement by pulling your torso upward towards the bar while contracting your biceps and the muscles across your back.
  5. Continue to pull yourself up until your chest is as high as you can get it. Your chin should be above the bar.
  6. After a brief pause at the top, slowly lower your torso back down along the same path into its starting position.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 for the desired number of reps.
