Vary Up Your Chin Up Back Exercise Routine

Don’t get stuck performing the same types of chin up exercises and get outdoors and vary up your back routine.  Often we will see many people performing the standard chin up with a supinated, neutral or pronated grip.  These grips are often the staple of any good chin up (vertical pull) movement.  Once you have mastered these though, I would suggest try adding in some different movements to create variety but also stress the body differently to gain greater function.

Below are some examples of how one could vary their routine when performing chin ups.

Chin Up To Single Arm Hang


Anterior Climbing Chin Up


So next time you are outdoors or are looking to vary up your back routine, try some of these to get your body moving and add some variety to your back routine.
