The Assisted Chin up Machine is a great way to work your way towards completing a full Chin up. Learn how to perform this exercise with the team at Fitness Institute.
Machine: Life Fitness Assisted Dip/Chin
To begin, set the appropriate weight (the more weight the easier the movement). Using the steps, take hold of the desired hand grips (in this case we have gone overhand grip on the wide handles). Place both knees on the pads and lower with arms fully extended – This is the starting position (Figure 1).
Flex elbows and pull yourself up towards the handles. A repetition is counted when the chin reaches the top of the handles (Figure 2). Slowly extend elbows to lower to the start position.
Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
