When down facing the ground set your hands at a distance which is slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Your feet should be in plank position resting on toes only. Your body lifted on hands and toes should be in straight line.  Push yourself straight with your arms’ strength till they are fully extended, pull your navel in and then bring your body down, bending your elbows till it is parallel to the ground.

Grab the pull-up bar with your palms down (shoulder-width grip) and hang to the pull-up bar with straight arms and your legs should lift off the floor.

Begin by flexing the elbow, lowering your body until your arms come at 90 degree angle. You should not be swinging and must be in control of your posture throughout your descent. Extend your elbows and reverse the motion and push yourself back to the starting position. Repeat.
