The chin-up can seem like the Everest of fitness moves, reserved for the freakishly strong. But it’s not as tough as it looks. You don’t need to bang out dozens – working towards completing just one or two chin-ups will give you a boost, since it works lats (muscles that span the middle of your back to your armpits), biceps, core and shoulders. The end result: a sexy upper body, tighter midsection and more streamlined posture. Follow this lesson from Adam Campbell, author of The Australian Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises.
