What is a close grip pull-up or chin-up?

This exercise helps in strengthening our middle and lower back / lats as the primary muscle. It also strengthens biceps, forearms and upper back / traps. It requires a bar attached between two hinges to hang on it to perform the exercise.

Difficulty Level: Moderate to Easy

How to do a close grip pull-up or chin-up?

  1. With your arms close to each other, hold the bar with your palms facing you.
  2. Starting position: Extend your arms to their full extent.
  3. Crossing your ankles with each other, bend your knees (like swinging in the air).
  4. Pull yourself up until your chin touches the bar and your elbows bent to their full extent.
  5. Final position: Go back to the initial/starting position by lowering your back and bringing your arms and legs back to the initially extended position.
