back lats
Wide-grip chins to the front is a chin-up variation that requires a wide grip on the bar with your palms facing away from you. This exercise primarily targets your lats, teres major, and biceps muscles, while also working your rear delts, traps, and rhomboids. The wide grip allows for a greater activation of the lats, which can help you build a wider back. To begin the exercise, start by gripping the pull-up bar with your palms facing away from you at a distance that is greater than shoulder-width apart. From there, pull yourself up until your chin clears the bar, making sure to keep your elbows tucked in at your sides. Slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position and repeat for the desired number of reps. Wide-grip chins to the front can be a challenging exercise, especially if you are new to chin-ups. It is important to maintain good form throughout the movement, which includes keeping your core tight, your shoulders down and back, and pulling with your lats rather than your arms. Incorporating this exercise into your routine can help you build a strong and defined back, as well as a powerful set of biceps.
