Pull Ups vs Chin Ups

Here’s a few questions I get asked a lot. Q. What’s the difference between chin ups and pull ups? A. A chin up is done with your palms facing you and the pull up is when your palms are away from you. Q. Which is harder? A. The chin up incorporates the biceps so it is easier but that doesn’t make it easy. Both exercises are tough but I really believe everyone should include them in your workouts. Q. Which is better? A. I do both. Try both of them and you can feel the different muscles each exercise targets.

Challenge Workout Update

OK. Been doing this about a month now. Man that is a tough workout and – it works! My pull ups have increased by 3 – From 5 good strict ones to 8 good strict ones. My shoulders feel like they are on fire and my wife noted they look bigger. Let me tell you something. Shawna charges a very fair price but she doesn’t stop when you buy her program. She adds more.

If you work out hard and get minimal results, … Continue reading

Australian Pullups

I love these. Basically you use a chinup bar and rather than doing regular pullups, you lay under it and do your pullups. I guess that is why they are called Australian pullups – down under? Many exercise programs have you do these so you can build yourself up to do regular chin ups or pullups. And they do help increase your strength so you can do just that. However, personally I do these twice a week anyway along with my regular bar work as this exercise tends to hit the lats upper back more so. I found a good … Continue reading
