  • Rack chins without a partner?

    Anyone have any tips for performing this movement without a training partner? Getting the bar on your lap, etc?

    That's a bitch. lol

    I have used fixed EZ curl bars with the weights already on them in the past instead of plates but that's about the only advice I have for you. It's tough without someone helping you.

      It can be done, you just have to come at it at a slight angle....

            Dumbbell in the lap works too. Setting the head of a bench on an incline like Bruno did is perfect. It allows easy setup and you still get enough clearance to perform the movement with a full ROM. I think a lot of people watched the DC video with Wojo and Ditillo and thought that was the only way to do it.

          The other option some prefer (I don't personally) is loading up a backpack. A weighted vest could do the trick, too.

          The EZ- curl bar is the way to go, IMO.

                      I have been using a dip belt for them. I put them on the dip belt securely and slowly get my legs up on the bench and then go. It can get really hard to get legs up when you start going heavy. But it worked for me until a certain point.

                        You could also try using resistance bands if you can set them up properly. I don't have a training partner, so I have to find way to make such movements more progressive or harder while keeping safety in mind.
                        Its not the size of the hammer, its the size of the man holding the hammer.
