To learn how to catch up on the barand depending on the purpose of your exercise, choose the most convenient form of grip. The grip is the way the hands on the bar. It can be:
• Short, when the hands are located next to each other, head over to;
• Usual, when the hands placed on the bar beside;
• Wide, when the hands intentionally placed wider than shoulder level. In addition, the grip is divided into positive, negative and mixed.
• Direct called grip when closed the fingers on the bar located from the face of the pull-up.
• Reverse grip – the one that close the fingers are positioned to face the athlete.
• Mixed grip is tightening with alternating forward and reverse grip of the hands on the bar, when one hand is held straight grip, the other reverse. As you know, different type of grip when lifting involve various muscle groups. Thus, being tightened, it is possible to develop not only the muscles of the shoulder girdle, but also the back muscles.
To learn how to catch up on the bar, follow the main rule. The tightening is correct when the head of the athlete during the movement describes a smooth semicircle, at the bottom of which the top is located under the horizontal bar, and at the highest point – the chin for 1-2 cm is located above the horizontal bar. The manner of pull needs to be smooth and quiet. The speed of the pull-UPS should not be too fast or, on the contrary, deliberately slow.
General body position pull-up should be smooth. Feet can be slightly open but not too widely divorced in hand. Any Bouncing and jerking on the bar, usually intended to help to reach chin up bar, pull-up when out of power, actually take more of your energy. So if you feel that the desired number of pull-UPS is still not dialed, and the forces already on the wane, it is better to make a small break than to get my pullups smoothly. After some time again go back to the bar. Muscles recover much faster during operation.
