Reverse-Grip Pull-up

 

Overview

The reverse grip pull up is a great exercise that strengthens and tones your back. It also strengthens your biceps and grip at the same time. If you are unable to do pull ups on your own you can have your workout partner assist you. You can also do kipping pull ups. A good goal is 20 reverse grip pull ups.

  • Bending your legs behind you, hang with your arms straight.
  • Keeping your chest up at all time, pull yourself up as high as you can.
  • Return slowly to the bottom position.
