Three Most Common Chin-up Mistakes and How to Fix Them.
Mistake number one – not starting from a full hang.
Most of the time people start their chin-up with bent elbows coming forward. The solution, push your head forward, make sure your biceps are past your ears, keep your legs locked, and start the position from a dead hang.
Mistake number two, rounding your shoulders at the top.
A lot of folks come up and they pull their shoulders forward as they do the chin-up. The solution, pull your lats down and pull yourself up, squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top.
Mistake number three, not engaging your lats at the bottom position.
The solution to this again, starting from a dead hang, tuck your armpits into your underpants. Trying to pull your body up to the bar without bending your elbows, then extending and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Again, pull your lats down and squeeze.
