Coach Sommer & others: one arm chin Q

Recommended Posts

ChenZhen

Hey guys!

i asked this question on the dragondoor forums too but didn't get that much help so i figured out here must be the perfect place to ask this qustion: i'm trying to learn the one arm chin but i don't have any possibilities to use additional weights. i'm using a dip/pull up tower where my non working hand uses the dip bar to assist me in pulling myself up:

i've made a video:

i can also do a one arm chin with my other hand holding my biceps.

do you guys think it's possible to achieve the oac with this method? i'd really appreciate any tips you can give me, i don't want to waste my time with the wrong method.

best wishes

Of course it is possible without weights, it might even be more to your benefit.

If anything follow Jims great article on OAC, I have the one arm let down, I'm not looking for glory with the OAC, but my brother followed his guide and it seemed to help quite a bit.

just do one arm negatives where you pull double and lower slowly on one arm

another thing you can do is towel one side and grip that with one hand.

as your hand moves down your leverage decreases which will help transition to a true OAC

thx for the answers guys,

today i used the towel method combined with gtg, feels great, especially the negativ part of the movement felt much stronger today :D
