Alternating one armed chin ups

Alternating one armed chin ups

A variation on a the one armed pull up/chin up. One hand palm facing yourself, second hand on wrist for support, do a full rep, chin over bar and all the way down. Now the twist. Slowly switch hands without assistance or your feet touching the ground and due a rep with the other hand. Keep alternating. This is a challenge as you have to fight swinging side to side as you switch. Posting my first attempt as a demo.  more about this challenge...

  • profile pic Totally agree Andy, didn't have much room at all in the doorway...we are the true warriors my friend...can't see many trying this beast of an exercise!!! by GedMustoNumber1 on 6/19/2012 6:55:00 PM

  • profile pic I need to try this on a wider bar outside where I have enough ground clearance to keep my legs straight. Its very hard with the balance switching hands and bent knees in a doorway exacerbates the effect. I compensated by going much slower than normal. by AndyWeaver on 6/19/2012 6:09:00 PM

    Ged you came down far enough but you were putting the second hand on the bar before you lowered is all. I wont take it down. When you try it again update your score. You still did them and its more correct then not. by AndyWeaver on 6/19/2012 6:06:00 PM

    I broke my right ulna/radius in two places about five years back and still can't 100% straighten the joint, I went as far down to near full lock on the way down before coming back up.. by GedMustoNumber1 on 6/19/2012 5:57:38 PM

    Good job, until people try it they wont know how hard it is to balance. Only part for form is to go all the way down on one arm before you switch. by AndyWeaver on 6/19/2012 5:50:11 PM
