I'm AJ Tucker, and this is how to improve a weighted chin-up. When you compare a chin-up to a lat pull down, there's no comparison. Whenever you move your torso up and down through space, you get so much more results. But how do we get to the point to where we can do an effective weighted chin-up? I'm going to take you through three phases. The first phase is to do a weighted chin-up without any added weight. Whenever you do a weighted chin-up without any added weight, you want to do a volume of twelve to 20 repetitions for max effect. The second portion are negative pullups. You may not be able to do a weighted chin-up so you build yourself up to that point by doing negative pull-ups. You grab the bar, you jump up using a box and you let yourself down slowly in three to four second increments and last, you add weight on the pullup. So you will put the weight around your waist and pull yourself up at a regular speed. And using all these three elements, will improve your weighted chin-up.
