Whats full ROM of a Pull-Up?

Post by Musky » Tue Jul 17, 2007 3:32 pm

How do most of you class it? is it when you can get your chin over the bar or does your chest have to touch the bar. Ive been trying to get to the latter, but realised if I go by the former im probably a few levels higher than what im doing now.

best to get the chest to the bar leaning way back helps this, but donet do it if it hurts you shoulders or feels weird in a bad way.

Interesting - I find that using more back (chest to the bar) is easier than getting the chin which I think brings more arms/shoulders into the mix.

Yeah, after people get the hang of it that is usually the case.

I'm developing a weird OCD thing about the word "hang" when the pullup topic is so prominent :roll: I have resisted the thought to say "Hang in there" which is a common phrase for me.

yeah i always make sure theres a slight flex of my triceps at the bottom of the movement, which isn't possible without a full extension.
I'll keep shooting for chest to the bar.
