    chin up

    a chin up is when you grab a metal bar and pull yourself up to your chin

    хватаешь за металличиский предмет и подтягиваешься вверх до подбородка
    а как же назвать тот предмет (metal bar)

    the only word I can think of is трость - but that's a walking stick, so I don't think that's right. Or maybe прут?

    Перекладина. The whole construction is called Турник. Две стойки и перекладина.
    The process is called "подтягиваться" or "подтягивание" (на турнике).

    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.
