First, you will want to get yourself situated. Lie your back directly underneath the bar. It does not have to be perfectly matched up, but you will ideally want to have your bar about leveled with your sternum.
Extend your body for the best result
The next step is extending your body. Keep your back directly straight while having your feet every so slightly apart. The same thing goes for your arms. They should be fully extended as well. At this point, you can adjust the height of the bar as needed to accommodate your size.
Don’t forget to breathe
Next, take a big exhale as you begin to pull your body in an upwards direction towards the bar. Do this until your chest makes direct contact with the bar. Once you do this, your elbows and forearms should be at approximately a 45 degree angle
Start with a high bar
The higher the bar, the easier it will be to do the Australian pull up. Most people will want to start with their body at 45 degrees or steeper.
Lower the bar to increase the resistance
Once you are comfortably doing 10 Australian pull ups per set, it’s time to increase the resistance. By doing the exercise more horizontally, you will get stronger and develop more core strength.
Remember, training is all about consistency. Keep at it and you will be doing sets of Australian pull ups soon. And then it will be time to move to normal pull ups.
