Chin ups - The body weight exercise that people love to hate. Lets face it, very few exercises can stress the core and upper body like chin ups do. The pulling motion is one of the fundamental movement patterns that should be included in everyones workout regime. As a result, chin ups can help improve grip strength, posture and appearance, while also helping to strengthen muscles that stabilise the spine.
The chin up stimulates the biceps brachii, brachialis, brachioradialis, latissimus dorsi, teres major, posterior deltoid and deep spinal stabilisers such as the transverse abdominis, lumbar multifidus and thoracolumbar fascia. Main benefits of the chin-up include improving strength, defining the upper arms, shoulders and back. Furthermore, being able to do chin-ups helps develop a crushing grip strength which will carry over into other lifting exercises.
The 5 grip variations allow you to use different grips including underhand, overhand, nuetral, narrow, wide and mixed. The benefit of these variations is the ability to target different muscles. If you're a begginer, resist assist bands help aid you as you gain strentgh, once people have mastered the basics of chin ups they often use dip belts and weight vests to help add resistance to the lift. In addition, Xpeed Power Rings can challenge the athlete and pull movement pattern in multiple ways.
