In this video I’m going to show you how to do chinups, also called underhand grip pullups. When you do these, your palms are toward your face. These are a great exercise for many reasons.
When you do chin ups, its not just your lats doing the work, its your biceps too. This has a lot of advantages. If you are a beginner who cant do an overhand grip pullup, then do chin ups untill you are strong enough to do pullups. The other great use of chin ups is a way to work your biceps when you dont have any weights available to you, because you are on vacation or because you simply cant afford them. You can get an amazing whole bodyworkout without any weights at all: pushups, pullups, chin ups, crunches, hanging windshield wipers, and walking lunges. A killer workout at vacation or at home.
Now lets talk about form, first of all, I HATE the name “chin ups”. The reason is that it puts people in the horrible mindset that they have to get their chin up above the bar. Dont try to get your chin above the bar, that causes people to do crazy and dangerous things. They kick, swing, and crane their neck like a turtle, or dislocate their neck attempting to get their chin above the bar. Just go as high as you can.
Use slow form, this is the right speed about 2s up and 2s down
Go up as high as you can but dont worry about getting chin above bar
When you go down, dont hang and relax. Dont let shoulders move up toward ears

The barbell curl is a great mass building exercise for the arms you can do at home with just an inexpensive barbell set. Form is key on this, most folks at the gym use terrible form. In this exercise, your elbows are pinned to your sides – the do not move one bit. Nothing moves except your your forearms. Your back, legs, head are all completely motionless. If you have to swing or bounce then you are using way too much weight.
As with any dumbbell exercise, form is key if you want to maximize your muscle building efforts and minimize the chance of injury. Don’t use too much weight, if you can’t do the exercise slowly then you need to go lighter. Count aloud “one onethousand, two onethousand, three onethousand” on the way up and the way down, if you cant do this on this exercise then you are using too much weight. The reason this exercise method maximizes your muscle growth is because it confines the motion to the muscle you are trying to work out, if your body squirms, swings, and kicks, all you are doing is taking the focus away from the muscle you are trying to exercise.
Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A cheap dumbbell set from a garage sale or Walmart is all it takes to get started with your home workouts.
