Regular chinups, where you're pulling to your shoulders, to high chinups, where the bar ends up at the bottom of your chest?

I was wondering how everyone here made the leap that seperates regular chinups from muscleups.

Here are some general tips...

  1. Concentrate on performing full range of motion for every rep
  2. Build training volume over time as you get stronger, ie: add sets / reps when you can do more work; use the grease the groove method, etc
  3. Add weight during some workouts once you can perform 10+ strict full range of motion chin-ups or pull-ups
  4. As you get stronger, start adding explosive sets where you pull as hard and fast as you can each rep. This will help build the power required to pull your chest to the bar

Ultimately, if you train hard and train consistently, chest to bar pulls will come. The specifics of your routine may influence how fast you get there... but the biggest factor is just being consistent.
