To Chin or not to Chin?
Chin-ups are one of the most challenging body-weight exercises that many people love to hate. Not surprisingly, chin-ups also happen to be an exercise that many exercise enthusiasts wish they could do, but wishing doesn’t give one the strength to lift his or her own body weight.
Chin-ups can help improve grip strength, posture and appearance, while also helping to strengthen muscles that stabilize the spine. This, in turn, can help reduce one’s risk of back pain and injury. Even if a client is only able to do one or two chin-ups at a time, this exercise offers tremendous benefits, especially for the back, shoulders, forearms and biceps. In addition to helping develop strength in the involved muscles, the ability to lift one’s own body weight can provide clients with an enormous sense of empowerment.
So if you are looking to feel better as well as look better, its time to bite the bullet and start working on those Chins!!
