Post subject:  Chin ups / Pull ups

Just a quick question :- For motocross what is the correct way to do a chin up / pull up?

The only reason I ask this is because I have always done them to full stretch....i.e upto the bar and then down to the full stretch of my arms and then up again but recently I have seen video clips of Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey and Trey Cannard and they all only seen to execute a half chin up / pull up.....i.e upto the bar and then only drop halfway down and then back up, is this right or is it just for the purpose of the video also it never shows the bottom half of their body, do you think they are standing on someones back, on a chair..... :D (just Joking)

Many Thanks.

P.S. I just want to say a big thank you to all the team aswell because last year I finished 3rd in my championship which was I felt was down to the help and information a got here so a very big thank you to you all :)

Honestly, I have no idea why those guys do not do full-hang pullups. Perhaps they have an injury that prevents them from doing a full hang. Personally, I always do full hang pullup unless I get tired and then I "cheat" a little by not going all the way to the bottom. Have you seen this article on the site regarding pullups?

The comments on this article are probably the best part!
