Muscle Group: Back

This variation of pull-ups works your lats, especially the lower region.

Use either a close grip handle pull up bar or bring your hands in closer on a regular pull up bar. Doing this will place more stress on your lower lats.

Hold the handles of the bar using a narrow or medium close grip and pull yourself up – bringing your chin above the bar. Do not sway your body backwards. Concentrate on using your lats to perform this movement.

Draw your shoulders down and back and stick your chest out at the top. Allow your body to go back down to the starting position in a controlled manner until your lats are fully stretched out.
