When it comes to exercise, the excuses are limitless. From being too tired to go to a gym to their ludicrous pricing, not having the time to go, or feeling like everyone else is judging you once you’re there – we’ve heard it all. However, there is a solution: a home chin up bar.
From the comfort of your own home, you can work out at a time that suits you, at a fraction of the cost it is to sign up to a wellness centre. All you need to do is invest in a home pull up bar and use your own weight to push your limits – it’s that easy!
Types of chin up bar exercises
One of the most neglected parts of the anatomy is the upper body, so by implementing a few exercises a couple of times a week can actually help to strengthen your bones, promote fat loss and muscle development, and improve your overall body image.
A chin up bar is one of the most versatile home gym products, and offers many different types of training exercises to improve and build upper body strength. The main muscles worked with a pull up bar include the latissimus dorsi, biceps brachii, infraspinatus, lower trapezius, pectoralis major, erector spinae, and external oblique.
In addition to a standard chin-up, you can also do hanging leg raises, hanging reverse shoulder shrugs, a behind neck pull-up, negative pull-ups, windscreen wipers, bat-wing chin ups and much more. You can even incorporate resistance bands and complete band-assisted chin ups for extra security when lifting yourself up.
