Strict pull ups are great for building strength in the upper body especially the lats and the biceps. The starting position is a dead hang.
Pull up so that your chin is above the bar.
You can also reverse your grip to a supinated or underhand grip. This is also known as a chin up and it will target your lats and biceps in a slightly different way.
The standard with the chin up is the same trying to get your chin over the bar.
You can regress or scale this exercise by adding a band underneath your feet or using a gravitron or assisted pull ups machine.
You can progress this exercise by adding weights to yourself such as a belt with kettlebells or weight vest for added strength training.
