How To Get 6 Pack-Abs By Doing Chin-Ups

mma kettlebell workouts

 I don’t have much of an ego.  (Although isn’t it egotistical for me to even say that?)

When I was a young trainer with more "stones" than brains, I thought I knew everything.  Nobody could tell me anything about anything because I knew it all!

Times have changed.  And now I’ve learned how to try to detach my ego from every encounter and experience that I have especially every time I speak to someone about exercise.

Every encounter and experience is an opportunity to learn more.

Take, for example, the video below.

I asked my buddy, world-renowned MMA strength coach Eric Wong, to give me some of his best bodyweight exercise tips and I came away learning a thing or 2 about how to correctly do chin-ups.

If you missed last week’s jump squat video, you should definitely check that out.

Eric’s got a great free report that he’s giving away right now that you should definitely pick up…

In the report Eric talks about 5 essential elements in getting both shredded and strong and looking like an MMA fighter.

After you pick up the report, check out the video below of Eric’s abdominal intensive chin-up variation…

 

 

Let me know if you have any questions, and let me know if you like the video!

    Hi Chris; the ‘chin-ups’ look great, but I’ve heard that that particular type of excercise isn’t suitable for women due to different build/strength area. – certainly proved out by myself- I’m fairly fit and strong but can barely lift myself close to the bar. Maybe it’s just me? Any help/comments.

    For clarification please.

    I heard that chin ups go to the chest and pull ups go to the chin. Which is which OR is it that both just go to the chin and the grip is the only difference? OR both can go as high or as low as one decides and the grip is the only dfference?

    Thanks

    Hey Frank, Eric Wong (dude in the video) here…

    A Chinup is underhand grip; Pullup overhand grip.

    Both require you to pull your chin over the bar.

    Now you can do a ‘sternum’ version where you pull yourself up so the bar hits lower on your chest around your nipple line, but you can do that version with both Pullups and Chinups.

    Hey Frank,

    Chinups are an underhand grip while Pullups are an overhand grip.

    In both, for full range of motion, the chin goes over the bar.

    Now there is a ‘sternal’ version of both where you pull yourself up so that the bar hits about your nipple line with all the same form cues applying.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks Eric, always looking for variety without compromising the workout. I’ll incorporate it with my back workout tomorrow morning.

    Hey Fern, I can tell you from my experience that chin-ups are indeed ‘suitable’ for women!
    Chris has a great video on progressing from flailing around limply under the bar (me 6 months ago)to doing them with great form, multiple times.

    Even so, I used one of those assisted chin-up machines at the gym – it takes some of your bodyweight and you can gradually decrease the assistance as you get better.

    Technically, I found the most important thing was to make sure that you keep your shoulder blades packed down and back, and as the video says stay tight through the middle (without curling up), and bring your chest to the bar. I like to imagine that I am lifting from the back & shoulders rather than the arms.

    Good luck!
