    These are a precursor to pull ups. You use a waist height bar straiten your body under it to a 45 degree angle and pull your chest to the bar.

    As far as I know, a chin up is when your palms are facing towards you and engage the bicep more, where as a pull up has your palms facing away from you and engages more of the back.

    I am just learning all of this, but I have yet to do my first chin up. Aiming for one by the end of summer. The pull up...someday.

    AMAZING! I wish mine would say the same! I can't wait to hear how he does.

    This is an Inverted Body Row in Robb Wolf speak.

    My OD is pushing me to try a pull-up/chin-up and bets I can do some... I haven't tried. They still intimidate me.

    Jenn is right. I had the wrong term. Fixed

    I'm sure there are a million terms for everything. I was just telling you what Robb Wolf calls them - not correcting you.

    I didn't feel corrected. When I saw your term, I realized I had it wrong. Don't want to confuse anyone.

    Turns out a lever up is a difficult gymnastics move.

    A few months ago, I tried a pull-up and could not even hang on the bar without pain. I could not hold myself up if I jumped up either. A couple weeks ago, I tried on a friends bar. I could hang, but it hurt just below my sternum. I could jump up and hold myself up, but it hurt in that same place. Operation core strength is a go! haha

    I experienced that same pain at basic training when we were required to do push ups, sit ups and pull ups after every meal. Eventually, I stopped doing the pull ups and just said I did them.

    I asked Brad last night if he wanted to get a doorway pull up bar. He looked at me like I was nuts.
