The 4 Women’s Workout for an Hourglass Figure
Grab the chin-up bar with a shoulder-width, underhand grip and hang at arm’s length. This is the a dead hang, the start position for the chin-ups. Pull your body up to the bar, pausing once the top of your chest touches the bar, then slowly lowering your body back to a dead hang. That’s one rep. “Be sure to keep the shoulders back; don’t round them forward as you pull. If you can’t do reps with perfect form, try using looping a band around the bar and sliding one or both knees in the loop until you can,” she says.
