How To Perform Exercise

The V-Bar Pull Up exercise is a more advanced version of the standard Chin Up in which the closer grip provides more development of the shoulders.

Steps :

1.) Start by grasping the pull up bar with an overhand grip so that your palms are facing forward.

2.) Once you have a hold of the bar, let your body hang keeping your arms straight, as this will be your starting position.

3.) Then slowly pull yourself up so that your chin is higher than the bar and once in the top position hold for a count.

4.) Using a controlled motion, lower yourself back down to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) Keep your legs in line with your torso throughout the entire exercise.
