Chin-ups are difficult for most people to do, especially for females. The average number of chin-ups a female can do is zero.
A lack of strength and poor body composition are two of the main reasons, but the one that tops the list is perception. Most females perceive that they can’t perform a chin-up and sure enough, they fulfill that prophecy!
