There are some simple fitness equipment such as jump rope, free weights, chin-up bar and pull up bars that you can use for your workout routine. They are known for their effectiveness and efficiency to improve our physical strength and endurance.
Chin ups. It’s easier. Work your biceps more, palms facing you.
Pull ups. It’s harder. Less biceps, more back, palms facing away.
What are the benefits of using a chin up bar?
Pull up is one of my favorite workout because it’s simple and don’t required me to buy an expensive tool for it. Despite its simplicity, this tool offers great effects to our body, including:
♦ Increase the strength of body
When we lift up our bodies, we have made a range of muscle groups and joints work together. These muscle ranges involve the biceps, chest, trapezius, scapula, middle back and lats. The result is that it gradually increases muscle’s endurance, power and strength.
♦ Enhance body shape
Exercise using a chin-up bar will make your muscles grow larger and harder. Many bodybuilders have been doing this exercise to get muscular body along with lean muscles.
♦ Cardio workout
This exercise also helps you to burn calories and convert excess fat into lean muscles.
