Exercise Performance
Grab hold of a horizontal bar with a shoulder width overhand grip. A slightly wider grip is acceptable - experiment to find out which width feels strongest for you. Bend at the knee and loop the ankles behind your body. Your feet should be clear of the ground. Bend at the elbows and shoulders until your chin passes over the bar. Pause for a moment, before reversing the motion under full control.
