4 Easy Steps To Your First Chin Up!

Oh the dreaded chin up. I hear it all the time from friends and family who are just getting into fitness or have even been exercising for years but still can’t do a chin up. The truth is, it seems a lot scarier than it actually is. It all comes down to practicing consistently and working your way up by using different levels of assistance.

I broke it down into 4 steps.


1. Assisted Chin Up Machine

2. Partner Holding Your Feet

3. Use A Band

4. You’re Ready!

I recommend starting at the first step and do 3 sets of 10, 3-4 times a week until it becomes easy and then move on to the next step and do the same. Just continue to do this through the steps until you get to the final step which is an unassisted chin up. After those become too easy then add some weight!

Also having a strong back will help you progress even faster! Try adding in lat-pull downs into your workout as well to help strengthen those same muscles that you use for chin ups.
