  • Rear rack chins?

    How far up should you go w/ rear rack chins- bar ~ear level?

    Correct. Touch (don't bang) the bar with the back of your head.

        That's alright IH, the next time you see him on the side of the road, splash him with a mud puddle. I heard somewhere that he likes that, hehe.

            It's his fault for drilling this stuff into our heads, right?
            I just got done reading that 6lb burger thread. Man I'd like to take a shot at that title. Three hours to eat it, soooo, two pounds an hour, I don't know.

                I really like compound movements l ike this that you can do different variations of but get a different effect. Like military press behind the head of in front of the head, etc. Helps keep things interesting.

                  maybe it's just me, but rear rack chins seem more natural, esp. w/ weight, than "regular" rack chins.....i've been doing them "regular" way and getting good results, but something didn't feel right...couldn't quite put my finger on it (not pain or anything, just didn't...feel...right, like the leverage or angle was off). Did a few reps of rear rack chins for practice today and it felt smack-on. *shrug* not really certain how else to explain it


                  btw, i guess you have a mustang and since you're in houston, do you post on fordpower?

                    Nah I don't really post on Ford Power. I have a screen name, its the same as this one, but I don't post often.

                    I do browse though, and frequent www.westsidemustangs.com and www.htownracing.com .

                      You are not positioning your bench correctly, you must have the bench so you are in a "L" shape when hanging from the bar, but not quite an L since your feet will be higher than your ass throughout the whole movement. You must keep your torso straight up and down on Rack Chins...

                        hmmm, okay - that's probably my mistake then - my torso isn't perfectly straight, it's slightly angled because i've been playing with distance that the bench is from me. i've been keeping it ~3ft. infront, perhaps i should move it closer? (i'm pretty short- 5'7)

                          Click on the site below to see a photo of Scott Stevenson doing Rack Chins, as In-Human has described them. The huge Traps & Triceps on the left belong to no other then “Topumped” David Henry.(Congrads on the pro-card David.)

                          Hope this helps some others understand the proper way to perform this exercise. If nothing else it will tune you into a great site of Team Vasquez. ( great site John)
