Build those back muscles

Take action:

Grab a chin-up bar with your hands just more than shoulder-width apart and your palms facing away from you. Hang loosely, then pull yourself up until your chest nearly touches the bar – remember that the slower you raise and lower yourself, the more of a workout the muscles get. If you can do more than five pull-ups, consider wearing a dipping belt with a weight hung from it. But if you’re starting out or are only reasonably fit, concentrate on getting your moves right first.
