Here are some technique tips for using chin up bars. The best, and hardest, way to do chin ups is with your arms fully extended. If you can't quite do that but can handle a start position with your elbows slightly bent, do that. You may have to start with a little jump. The same is true of the ending position. If you can't quite get your chin over the bar, the exercise is still productive.When doing multiple repetitions, bend your knees so your feet stay off the floor until your last repetition. This is a hard exercise, so don't do it two days in a row. These tips help get the most out of your doorway chin up bar.
