Yes, it's with the same stance I was doing a few months ago. Feet out to the cage.

There will probably be videos from a front-ish angle at the meet next Saturday.

I saw the video that still is from. He has terrible form but he was not struggling.

Are we talking about 20-25 dead hang pullups taken up to chest level or those half ones that everyone does? If the former, that's really good and I honestly don't believe you. Not taken to lockout at the bottom and not fully to the top, sure. Maybe it's just because I suck at pullups but like Coldsnap have said before I've never seen a solid rep IRL.

Yea, no one knows how to do a proper pull up now adays. And Especially now that crossfit is doing whatever they do to do the pullup.

I started doing cardio at the gym recently. I'm kind of like those women who come in and do nothing but walk on the treadmill. Anyhow, the best part about going to the gym is getting to watch everyone else being an idiot. Saw a guy doing pull-ups and top of his head didn't even make it to hand level and he didn't lockout at bottom. It was the quarter squat of pull-ups. Totally ridiculous. It's also fun to watch everyone grab way too big of dumbbells and proceed to swing/throw them up rather than actually lift the weight.

Dead hang, chin over the bar which might be a little lower than what you consider proper form.  It was college so I was probably kipping for the last few but it was still more than I can do now even though I'm much stronger overall (though I'm also 10 lbs heavier).

I thought you couldn't do a pullup at all...

post #35727 of 57262
Dunno. It's been a solid 5 or so months since I've written pullups out of my program. I was doing em with bands when I did them.
