Chest to Bar Pullups

Make contact below your clavicle.  Click HERE for a demo with explanation.  This can also be done butterfly style!


Safety Tip:  If you do not have a quality overhead position, be careful performing high volume reps of this movement.  An easy test is to perform Wall Extensions:  if you struggle to keep your hands in contact with the wall, you are a prime candidate for scaling this movement.


Scaling Suggestions:

The same rules apply for the standard kipping Pullup.  Be aware of your limitations, work on your mobility and do not overdo practicing or performing this movement in workouts.

Strict Pullups or Ring Rows – keep the reps in sets of 10 or less typically.


Mobility Suggestions:

Overhead Band Distraction

Foam Roll Lats

Keg Drill

T-spine Smash
