So you wanna get more chin-ups, eh? Please allow me to assist you in achieving this feat. There are many ways to go about it, so rather than just naming my favorite method, I’m going to cover a variety of the most popular methods and techniques used by lifters and coaches to increase your ability to get your chin over the bar – either with more reps, or with more weight. Will these methods work for you? You bet!
Before I delve into the article. it’s important to cover the key differences between the chin-up, pull-up and neutral grip pull-up, as many people do not know the difference. The chin-up is performed with a supinated grip, which essentially means that your palms will be facing you. The pull-up is performed with the palms pronated, which means that they’ll be facing away from you. And the neutral grip, sometimes referred to as the parallel grip, is performed with the palms facing each other.
