On that note, gonna spout one of my unpopular opinions and obviously I'm a bit biased since it's my video in question -- but I think there's a point of diminishing returns on "form" and this thread consistently blows past it. Even if my pullups aren't straight out of Starting Strength, I'm still getting fantastic gains from it and it's showing in how much size I've put on my back over the past year. I could either keep progressing or waste a bunch of time perfecting my form so a bunch of dudes on the internet will high-five me. I think as long as you're making gains and not risking serious injury, obsessing over every minor detail in form becomes a hindrance more than actual advice. In reality, everyone's mechanics differ somewhat and what may be comfortable/efficient for you might not be the case for someone else.
I agree with this wholeheartedly, over and out.

Why so butthurt?
Go after that khayenbii communique guy as well if you like. He said they didnt even count
" I also pointed out that I expected more from someone who looks like you."
This is not a dig at anyone, but look at how much Coldsnap preaches form and mobility, etc, etc, does he look nearly as aesthetic as TK?
You should watch some probuilders work out, granted their on a ton of shit, but their form is literally fucking laughable.
I'm of the camp that says, if what you're doing works for you, and you're not injuring yourself, who gives a fuck if you're not exemplifying perfect textbook form.
