Why do chin-ups?
If you go to the gym and want to achieve maximum results in the shortest possible time you have to do the most efficient exercises. These are the ones that target multiple body parts at the same time.
The chin-up is a multi-joint compound exercise that involves multiple muscle groups. It is better than “regular” gym exercises for people who train with health and fitness in mind and don’t want to become bodybuilding champions. It saves time and creates functional strength applicable to other physical activities - work or other sports.
The benefits you will get from performing regular chin-ups include:
- functional strength increase
- posture improvements
- back pain alleviation
- a better looking physique
This site presents a detailed program designed to improve the number of chin-ups you can do in a single set. The program is derived from the program used by Major Charles L. Armstrong, USMC to prepare himself to attempt to set a world record in number of pull-ups completed in a single exercise session.
Users have achieved remarkable results in only 6 to 8 weeks. This means that most, if not all, have been able to achieve a single set of twenty repetitions.
You can already do 10 consecutive chin-ups. Great! You are among the few ones who can. By following this program you will probably be able to reach the 20 repetitions target in about 6 weeks.
Most people cannot do even one chin-up. No matter what your level is, this program will help you greatly improve your performance and will put you on your way to 20 chin-ups.
