Here’s a tip I read last week when I was reading about pull-ups and chin-ups. Apparently by using this tip, chin-ups will “feel” easier. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you. Check it out:
Rather than thinking about pulling yourself up when you do chin-ups, imagine pulling your elbows down instead. In theory, this will make the exercise seem “easier”.
I tried it, and I suppose it worked. Sort of takes your mind away from the idea of pulling your chin up over the bar, and focuses your attention on something doesn’t “seem” as hard.
This is mental trickery at its best!
