Ive been doing 5 sets of 10 rack chins once a week on my latest programme (531 beefcake with a few (maybe a lot) of modifications).
I’ve always struggled with chins but have settled into 5 sets of 10 rack chins nicely. I feel it in my back a lot more and my form is top notch on 90% of my reps compared to proper chins where I seem to struggle to engage my back correctly and pull from the arms.
I’m guessing I wasn’t really strong enough in all the areas to get them done correctly.
Anyhow, now I want to progress somehow to eventually doing 5 sets of 10 real chins but just wondering about how to progress from 5 x 10 rack chins to 5 x 10 normal chins?
Was thinking of doing this:
Week 1, 1 rep real chin per set, 9 rack chins
Week 2, 2 real chins per set, 8 rack chins
And so on. Is this a dumb idea before I waste time trying this?
