Wide-Grip Pullup for Men
- Grab the chinup bar with an overhand grip that's about 1 1/2 times shoulder width. Hang at arm's length. You should return to this position--known as a dead hang--each time you lower your body back down.
- Pull your chest to the bar. Once the top of your chest touches the bar, pause, then slowly lower your body back to a dead hang.
Tip You can position your hands even wider, but as you do, the strain on your shoulder joint will increase.
