Pull up Progression
Pull ups, chins, etc are a fantastic back and shoulder exercise, in addition to strengthening the arms are core. Be sure to pay attention to the portion where I talk about using an elastic band to "spot" yourself or to get a few more reps. Also, always keep the bar in front of you rather than ducking the head forward putting the bar behind the neck (very bad for the neck and shoulders!).
