Calories Burned:  408 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Latissimus Dorsi
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Spinal Erectors
Instructions: 
Kneel on the padded support base of the machine and grip the bars with your palms facing out. Calmly allow your arms to straighten fully which will provide your Latissimus Dorsi with a pre-movement stretch.

Pull yourself up to a point where your chin is above the chinning bar and arch your back at the top of the movement. Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.

Keep tension in your shoulder muscles at the bottom of the movement to avoid injury to the shoulder joints.
