CLOSE- OR MEDIUM-GRIP PULL UPS
What Exercise Accomplishes: These pull ups work the
lats, especially the lower region. Using either a close grip
handle pull-up bar or bringing your hands in closer, will place more stress on your lower
Implementation: (A) Grip the handles or a bar using a narrow- or medium- close grip and pull up bringing your chin over the bar. You can't sway backward. Try to concentrate on using the lats to do the movement.
(B) Draw your shoulders down and back and stick your chest out. Also allow your body to go back down to the starting position in a controlled manner again until your lats are fully stretched out.
