More Work on the Chain Gang

Paul Gagné uses BFS lifting chains for challenging chin-ups

While taking a break during the photo shoot for the feature in this issue on vibration training, Canadian strength coach Paul Gagné lived up to his nickname of being the MacGyver of strength and conditioning.

This time he developed two new uses for BFS lifting chains.

First, Gagné draped the chains over our ceiling ladder and performed neutral-grip chin-ups, which are much tougher on the grip than towel chin-ups. Then he placed a short bar between the chains and did several wide-grip chin-ups, which due to the instability involved makes this variation much more difficult than those performed on a regular chin-up bar. Thanks for the tips, MacGyver!
