Started on a new mini goal for my client today, she wants to do her first chin up.

We began with 3 different methods to help work towards completing her first chin up.

We started with some work on the lat pull down to simulate the weight and movement through the muscles that are involved with a chin up, we used the scales to take her weight and then moved to the lat pull down and used this to simulate the pulling action required in a chin up, building the weight up completing one rep at a time trying to get as close to her equivalent in body weight.

Then over to do some negative chin ups to build her strength in holding her own weight. This is basically jumping up till your chin is level with your hands and lowering yourself down as slowly as possible until your arms are fully extended and repeating this with 3 sets of 3.

To finish some band assisted chin ups to help her with the full movement of the exercise which just involves a large elasticated band stretching from the handles to underneath her knee, this assisted her by taking some of the weight of so she could get used to the feeling of the full range of motion involved in the exercise, she completed 3 sets of 5 reps with this method.

This shot from the negitive chin up really shows off the hard work she’s put in over the last few months in training💪💪👌
