    Not sure why they are called Australian pull up. They are also known as inverted rows.

    Oh pull ups! I read it as push ups. Oops. Lol Although I've always called them chin ups, and I can't even do 1!

    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.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    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.

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