Mensagem:  Pulling up parallel to the bar means pulling up until your shoulders are at the same level as the bar. This is from the internet and maybe it will help you understand this exercise: How to do a Pull-Up Steps: 1. Stand under a pull-up bar. If you're taller than the bar, stand facing it. 2. Choose which two-handed grip to use. Pull-ups are usually done using the pronated (overhand) grip, meaning that the palms of your hands point away from you, with your thumbs pointing toward each other. 3. Chin-ups are done with a supinated (underhand) grip, in which the palms of your hands point toward you and your thumbs point away from each other. 4. Grasp the bar. Some gyms' pull-up bars are more than 7 feet high and require a stepping stool or other assistance to reach the bar. 5. Keep your arms straight and simply hang off the bar, keeping your body vertical. Try not to rock or sway back and forth. 6. Relax your shoulders. Try not to hunch them so they touch your cheeks. 7. Try not to arch your back. Unless you're taller than the bar, keep your knees straight and together. 8. Pull your chest up toward the bar by bending your arms. Try not to jerk any muscles as you pull up. The motion should be smooth. Keep your hands at the same position on the bar. 9. For beginners, pull your body up so that your chin can reach over the pull-up bar. For a more difficult exercise, pull your body up so that your chest makes contact with the bar itself. 10. Pause for a moment before you start lowering yourself back down. 11. Slowly begin straightening your arms and lowering yourself toward your starting position. Keep your torso straight, try not to rock back and forth, relax your shoulders and keep your legs together. 12. Pause once you've lowered yourself completely to hanging position, then repeat the exercise. Tips: Your hand position determines which back muscles are being targeted more than others. A wider grip on the bar works the lateral muscles, while a narrower grip works the middle back area. If the standard pull-up is too difficult, try using an assisted pull-up machine at a local gym. Follow the instructions printed on the machine. For an easier pull-up, place a chair underneath you as you do the exercise. Keep one foot on the chair and the other hanging to the side. As you raise yourself, straighten the leg that's on the chair for assistance. Use as little assistance from it as possible in completing the pull-up. Warnings: If you have any condition that would impair or limit your ability to engage in physical activity, please consult a physician before attempting this activity.
