Pull Ups / Chin Ups – Alternative Grip / Focus

Pull Ups / Chin Ups are staples in our compound exercises.  (See April 18 posting).     However, for a change and to put more emphasis on the back, try switching up the grip.   Go wide as you can and use an overhand grip.   Put your thumb in an overhand grip position as well as the fingers but do not wrap the thumb around the bar.   This change to WIDE and all digits in overhand grip position will put more emphasis on the back muscles. 

Stay tuned……..
