    One arm chin ups???

    My left lat is not as wide as my right and I want to even them out. How can I do that with a one arm movement? There is no way you can do one arm chin ups so any ideas??

    One arm lat pull downs I think wont work because when you pull your arm down your arm is closer to your body and not wide/away from your body.

    Bruce Lee is famous for being capable of doing 50 one-armed chin-ups at once.

    Not so impossible.

    One armed chins/pull ups arent impossible.

    But since you cant do them, take a grip with your left hand and instead of grabbing the bar with your right hand, grab your left wrist/forearm. This will shift more weight to the left side, and be easier than one handed chins/pull ups.

    No offence but that is poor advice, as you are still pulling with both lats. If you are any kind of athlete you should be able to do the same amount as normal chin ups depending on grip endurance strength. The real fix would be to drape a towel or rope over the bar and use one had on the bar, the other on the towel/rope. Uneven chinups/pullups hammer your bi's and rely i would say close to 85% on the lat on the side you are working, so if you want to "isolate" one side, i would hit these up twice a week, and wait for your lagging side to respond

    I think if Bruce Lee has taught us anything it's that one arm chinups are largely a skill based movement, though strength in the lats, rear delts, and biceps, grip and forarms are also hugely important. Either that, or Bruce Lee had the craziest neural efficiency that the world has ever seen. He wasn't huge. Most people that can do 20 chinups in a row are bigger than he was, but 50 MOTHER****ING ONE HANDED CHINUPS at his size? Granted he had very low bodyfat but I'm positive that those 50 one handed chinups required a huge amount of skill, as well as a high degree of neural efficiency I'm sure.

    Pulling closer to the body still works the lats, do you think the lats are turned off unless the elbows move out to the sides?

    Single arm lat pulldown would work fine, though to save time the hammer strength ones would allow you to balance the sides while still working at same time.

    This is a strength based exercise, not a skill. When referring to strength, there are three types, and neural strength is still strength.

    Myofibrial = This is what we traditionally thing of as strength. Tear the muscle fibers up with heavy weight, build them back bigger then before.

    Sarcoplasmic = This is where we increase strength through increased energy output. Depleting ATP quicker than you can supply it will cause new mitochondria to form.

    Neourological Strength = This is where Bruce Lee excelled. Through extreme body weight exercises and isometric move, you train your body to recruit additional muscle fibers. While this will have no contribution to size, you will build an unreal strength to weight ratio (enabling one armed chins).

While this will have no contribution to size, you will build an unreal strength to weight ratio (enabling one armed chins).
    You're wrong to say skill isn't involved in the exercise, it's strength and skill based. Neurological strength is your CNS becoming more efficient, and you don't need to do extreme bodyweight exercises and isometric moves to improve it, see olympic lifters. Even though I have no doubt that Bruce Lee had great neural efficiency, you really he would have been able to pull 146 pounds with one arm without being more muscular than he was if it was entirely a strength movement? It's strength and skill based.

    hey op you can always just do wide pullups to failure for 5 sets then super set it with shrugs for high reps 40-80 per set your lat should fill in..

    if one arm chins is what your after its all about the grip and leg drive gotta work on your body English practice muscle ups too they can also even out the lat issue =]

    I don't think that's what you'd call a muffin top, isn't that term for lower belly fat that spills over pants? Weightlifting belts go up pretty high, using the same term seems inappropriate.

Uneven chinups/pullups hammer your bi's and rely i would say close to 85% on the lat on the side you are working, so if you want to "isolate" one side, i would hit these up twice a week, and wait for your lagging side to respond
    which hand would grab the towel if you wanted to target the left lat?

    I don't believe Bruce Lee could do 50 one-arm chin ups. Maybe one hand, but not one arm. A lot of those feats seem bloated too, but I'm just talking about this one specifically. At least right now.

    http://www128.pair.com/r3d4k7/Chinups.html

    Jasper Benincasa is in a list of strength feats for doing 14 consecutive OAC. How could that be considered remotely impressive if Bruce Lee had done 50? Bruce Lee isn't even on that list.

    I believe the BW+265 chin he did is also a world record. Benincasa is basically a chinning legend. Bruce Lee absolutely did not do 50 one armed chins; this would not just be beyond world record territory, it's probably not even possible with 100% fiber recruitment on any human ever. Having seen the famous lat spread shot of Lee, as well as some of the slightly built climbers who can do one armed chins, I would certainly believe that ole Brucey was capable of a few solid OACs--but he did not do 50. I'd be very surprised if he could do 50 with both arms barring some absolutely monstrous kipping.
    Jack of all trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one.

    Lift the damn weight, and eat the damn food. It's as hard and as complicated as you make it.

    left hand on the bar, right hand supporting the pullup. depending on how high you grip the towel, you can use down pressure from the tricep to get the reps done instead of just pulling with your towel hand.

    Yeah im inclined to believe this, Lee was more of a push up/free weights guy anyway. He had massive lats tho.
