    use smith machine bar in an incline as alternative???

    Hey I'm currently on the LiveFit plan and the first exercise for my workout on Day 36 is "Wide Grip Overhand Pullups" which I am definitely not strong enough to do! Jamie says "use smith machine bar in an incline as alternative". I'm just wondering what the actually means. Does that mean lie on an incline bench and pull up on the bar?

    Thanks

    I'm not able to do pullups because of a shoulder injury. I do rack chins and supine rows instead. It's not exact, but it's a pretty close substitute.

    Does your gym have an assisted dip/chin? I've been using that for pull ups.

    Ah ok that makes more sense now thanks. I'm guessing Jamie means pull up from a bench though?

    I don't think so. I believe she is referring to Rack Chins as posted above it can be done on Rack or smith machine in the same manner.

    a good substitute can also be Lat pull down using wide overhand grip.
