Chin Ups

Strength Training Without Weights

This exercise is very similar to the pull up, but these tend to be easier for most people. I suggest starting with these if you’re a beginner. The only difference is your palms will face you, your arms will be shoulder-width a part, and the primary muscle is now the bicep (the muscle you need to think about thinking about). Something you probably didn’t know about chin ups is that EMG tests have proven them to be a much more effective workout for your biceps than dumbbell curls done in the gym.
