HANG TOUGH

Women's Health (UK) - - K -

Re­mem­ber when you used to spend ages hang­ing from the mon­key bars as a kid? Well, con­sider this play­time take two. If your grip isn’t solid, you’ve got no chance of lift­ing your­self up, so de­velop strength by hold­ing on to the pull-up bar with your legs hang­ing be­neath you. Hold for 10-30 secs and aim for 3-5 reps. Speak­ing of grip, for pull-ups, hands are pronated (palms fac­ing away from you) – turn them to­wards you and it be­comes a chin-up, which is slightly eas­ier.
