The pull up is by far one of my favourite exercises. OK, maybe not the funnest exercise to DO, but definitely one of the biggest "bang for buck" movements around.
But there's a lot of confusion about perfect pull up technique. So I'm doing a short series of pull up videos on BodyweightCoach.com. Here's the first installment.
Hope you enjoy that. The next post will be about how to modify pull ups for people who are having trouble building up to their first pull up or who can't do as many reps as they'd like.
