50 Chin up Challenge

50 Chin up Challenge

 

 

Chin/Pull ups are one of the most useful exercises you can do – training the forearms, elbow flexors, rear shoulder, upper back, lats, and abs. Whether you want to look better, perform better, or just have the freedom of control over your own body and bodyweight chin ups will get you there even if all you have is a straight bar. If you can get through all 50 variations of this versatile exercise you can feel assured you’ve mastered this great movement.

The Challenge is to perform 2 reps of each exercise for a total of 100 reps. Rest as needed, if you struggle with one of the movements repeat the one before it. You may also want to throw in some pushing or leg exercises in between so long as they don’t interfere too much with your working muscles.
