Close-Grip Chinup for Men
- Grab the chinup bar with a shoulder-width, underhand grip. Hang at arm's length. You should return to this position--known as a dead hang--each time you lower your body back down.
- Pull your chest to the bar. Once the top of your chest touches the bar, pause, then slowly lower your body back to a dead hang. Use an underhand grip with your hands placed 6 to 8 inches apart.
Tip Stare straight ahead at all times--it will limit momentum.
