GO Green Fit: Butterfly Chest-To-Bar


This is another EMOM (every minute on the minute) workout from gogreen2nd. It targets your shoulders more than anything, with even minutes devoted to 12 butterfly chest-to-bar pull-ups, and the odd minutes being spent on 16 shoulder tap reps. When doing butterfly chest-to-bar pull-ups, you want to start out with a wide grip on the bar. This allows you to get a better range of motion during the movement.

Watching the video, you can see this wide grip that the trainer has on the bar. Another important thing to notice is the angle of his elbow when he reaches his maximum height. His elbows are pulled back and his back is slightly arched. And then on the decline, notice how his body straightens out rather than swinging under the bar. This is how to properly perform a butterfly chest-to-bar pull-up.

How many butterfly chest-to-bar pull-ups can you do? What other exercises do you use to wreak havoc on your shoulders? Let us know in the comments below, or by tweeting us @underwearexpert.
