The closed grip pull up puts an emphasis on the lower lats. You do a closed grip pull-up by grasping the bar using your palms about 6 or 8 inches width away from each other. That is essential since the narrowness between them creates focus on your own lower lats. To get this done, pull yourself until your chin goes over the bar along with your hands and wrists virtually touching your own chest area. Whenever you pull up, give attention to contracting ones lats and do not sway your body frontward or backwards.
