As if Chin-Ups weren’t hard enough already…
Chin-Ups with Iso-Holds in between reps can be especially beneficial to develop overall pulling strength. You’d be surprised how much more difficult chin-ups become with a short pause at the top of every repetition.
I especially like this progression for grapplers like wrestlers and jiu jitsu athletes or really any athlete who’s job is to physically control their opponent so I guess we can also include defensive football players and offensive lineman.
As always with chin-ups all the way up and all the way down. Collarbone to the bar at the top and elbows straight at the bottom. Not cheat reps, you’re better than that. 😉
