Radial Pull Ups
For the Radial Pull Ups, grab the bar with a overhand grip as if you were about to do a pull up. From a dead hang pull the bar so that your hips elevate to the top. This movement should cause your torso to move radially around the bar with your arms almost straight. The radial action of the movement maintains maximum distance between the bar and your chest throughout the entire exercise.
This exercise focuses on the arms and muscles of the upper torso. Unlike the regular pull up that involves a lot of arm contraction, this movement focuses on the muscles of the chest, lats, and shoulders, leaving the muscles in charge of flexing the elbow in little use.
