What are you guys doing in warming up for your pullups?
Also, I found this article
on T-Nation regarding the author doing 13,064 pullups in 5 months. I'm curious what people think of the author's statements on using rings in pullups:
The absolute worst culprit [of elbow and/or shoulder pain] is the chin-up from a fixed bar. Just hang from a bar with your palms supinated and you'll immediately feel tension in your elbows. I've recommended the fixed bar chin-up for years, but things change. It's completely out of all my current training programs because it locks the wrists in the most stressful position to the elbows. . . . The risk is not worth the potential reward. Use rings for pull-ups.
If I can get them, I'll give rings a try. My right elbow is having issues, especially when I lift something with a reverse grip.
Would pullups from rings be counted?
