Begin by grasping a pull up bar with a shoulder width grip and your palms facing away from your body. Allow your body to hang naturally and then pull your body up until your chin is over the bar. Squeeze your back muscles and pull your elbows down to raise your body. Hold the position at the top position and then slowly lower your body back to the starting position.
You can use different grips for pull ups; a wider grip will help to isolate the lats.
