I thought the same thing, but when doing these I don't jump high enough or fiercely enough to get inertia. You sort of just leap to the bar and PULL.

22 strict fatigued (..after heavy dead lifts..450+ lbs., heavy bench...350+ lbs., and 4 sets of weighted pull-ups w/ 70 lbs.) Here's the video because I deleted it from my earlier post.

Just by that comment I don't think you've really listened to anything thats been pointed out.

I watched them both again, and with the obvious height difference it may look like similar form, but what you are failing to do (and solly isnt) is achieving a lock out at the bottom of the pullup.

You shouldn't be going to a dead hang with your shoulders forward touching your ears, but you should be extending almost fully down while keeping your shoulders back as much as possible (shoulders back, lats tied and engaged and locked out ready for next rep)

Instead of locking out you are instantly shooting into the next rep.

Thanks. I didn't want to even get into it. My last few reps seem almost better than my first reps. That constant up down without any sign of a pause is much easier. I will admit I would like to even go deeper though. I'm also pissed that I didn't read my "goal sheet" that's plastered on my wall before hand because I set my sept 2013 goal as 12 pull ups. I think I should be good for 15 by then.

It's frustrating giving advice that is so blatantly disregarded is all.

I mimicked m3inlines video (and researched into proper form as well) thanks to this thread, and got 9 wide grips after deadlifting.

Next time I workout with someone I'll get them to film me doing regular grip pullups fresh, I'm hoping for 13.

that's pretty good. Mine weren't fresh either. Maybe next time I'll try for it fresh so I can hit a PR.

Would you be down for a max rep 95lb back squat comp? Thinking of starting it on Monday.

I know what you mean. I'm at that point with z00.

Good job man. I love to see you guys make progress. It makes me happy like rainbows and gold-filled caldrons.

I haven't hit the gym since Tuesday. I was, and still am, beat up......but I'm finally at a point where I feel like I can squat and not buckle under the weight. Today is back squat/power clean/chin-up day, with some ancilliary stuff mixed in.

It's funny that you grunt so much. I only grunt during the heaviest of heavy front/back squats.

I honestly think I can do at least 100. This will be very painful though.

I know I'm not locking my arms completely out at the bottom but this is essentially a full extension. Aiming for 25 by the end of February.
