the way i’ve gone about teaching people to chin is straight out of the arnold encyclopedia. just keep going until you can get 30. i let guys have the chair under then just because the bar is pretty high. WITHOUT A SPOT. EVER. PERIOD. KEEP GOING TILL YOU GET 30. then move on to the rest of your workout. that seems to work. the last guy that trained under me couldn’t do ONE. now he knocks out 30 in about 4 sets. that was about 3 months ago. back once a week.

i’ve also read, that if you do, in your case, 1. every time you do a certain thing. eg, every time you walk past your chinning bar, provided its somewhere you go often. upto a max of 5 at a time. i haven’t actually practived that one though.

hope this helps
