How to do a Royal Navy chin-up

Look to use gym equipment or a suitable out door alternative, there are often exercise bars in local parks that you could use. An overhand grip can also be utilised, this is advised for potential divers as this is how they are performed on Divers Physical Fitness Test, view how to do this exercise here.

If you are struggling with this exercise, you could use resistance bands, one knee should be placed into the band for assistance.

Grasp the bar with an underhand grip, hands slightly wider then shoulder width and begin from a dead hang.
