Default dumb pullup question.

do you guys take your chin all the way up over the bar...or just until your forearms are perpendicular to your upper arms?

Your elbows should be darn close to your sides at the peak. So chin all the way over.

That's why I always do lat pulls after doing pull downs. I concentrate on the squeeze at the bottom of the rep...I bring the bar down very low and hold it for a second. I get my chin over the bar doing pull ups, but there are still a few inches of range that I have if I lose 20lbs or do pull downs.

If you're real good you can touch your shoulders to the handles.

Just don't hyperextend you neck, pity like you were doing in deadlifts . So don't reach for the pullup bar with the chin because you are thinking about getting the chin over the bar. Yes, I can see the future, haha. Try to keep a neutral neck.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Pullups I do chin over the bar. Pullups I like to do chin over the bar but if you really want to hit them hard pull up to your chest. The first time I did those my lats were sore for days.

I reached for the bar with my chin one time and "tweaked" it a bit. Hurt like hell for a couple of days and now I do my best to keep a neutral neck. Be careful looking into the future Eric....there is a lot of scary shit out there
