I think most people dont have the grip to do what Konsti can. You're more than happy to prove me wrong though, arent you? :)
i'm not the one claiming to be a training expert and telling people what 'form" works and what doesn't. ::)

Who claimed to be a "training expert?" Most wont have the grip and others wont have the stamina.

did a few overhand pull ups today and there was a little discomfort but im in...question just for clarification can we switch grips from overhand to underhand during if we dont touch the ground, i know this is retarded but just to make sure.
Why no neutral grip?

Feel free to switch grips. No neutral because Konsti used overhand and neutral is much easier for most people.

how about this, no momentum, full dead hang with 1 sec pause, and chest must touch the bar

that is a real pull-up.

We are delaying the entry date by one week to help people get them in. Now the date is March 29th.


We're doing this just because everyone is very busy as of late. This is just for fun anyway.


So put what you have now and then take another stab at it the next week if you wish. Good luck!

So why is it every time I click on a video, they come up "no longer available" ?

Hell, none of these pull-ups would count as (1) Marine Corps pull-up.

No kipping, over hand grip, full extension lock out at the bottom & chin needs to be clearly over the bar.

Try doing a pull-up with a monitor counting the reps.  They will decide when the arms are at full extension & will tell you when to pull up.  They then will only count the rep once the chin clears.

i wouldn't count one rep on any of these video's.

Geo is close, but the hammer grip has to go.  Also, some of them there wasn't full extension.
