Reply Bernhard October 12, 2016 That was great! But I want more!! Reply ochillia October 12, 2016 Best video of the month! I'm paying attention to the space between my ears and shoulders next time I work out. Thank you! I would love to see how to videos from you guys on the squat and deadlift, including how to choose a variation that's best for your experience and mobility levels. Reply InnerProp October 12, 2016 I've done the low lifts under the table, but I could never figure out exactly how to put the box (or chair in my case) for the assisted. Thanks for that. I also had not known about the shoulders away from the ears. I think that will help a lot. Thanks. Reply Alek Hartzog October 12, 2016 Cool, I need to work on my shoulder engagement for sure! Reply First Last October 12, 2016 Hand width is the same whether you're doing a pull-up or a chin-up? Reply Peter Tran October 13, 2016 I so have a man-crush on Jim B. Reply Ghost of Zeeko October 13, 2016 working towards my first pull-up and this helped a lot, thank you Reply Meghna Chhugera October 13, 2016 Wow…i wonder when will i succeed in doing my first Pull-up…chances look so bleak😟😟😟 Reply Dawn Beeslaar October 13, 2016 The video is awesome. I have been scouring the internet looking for a "How to", this is the best by far. I have been training for a while now and the chin/pull up remains elusive. It is my ultimate goal. The video is great, but I think its coming down to simple strength. My question is, what exercises can you do to build the correct or necessary muscles and strength? Lifting (i.e.: deadlifts.) and pushing (i.e.: push presses) are my thang, its the pulling that's a problem. The "do or do not, there is no try" self talk has not helped much either 🙂 Reply Colin Lusk October 13, 2016 Good work Staci, you might not have been as chatty as the two gentlemen but who needs to use their mouth when they can let their arms do the talking? Reply RC October 13, 2016 Thanks for this. I honestly had no idea about pulling the shoulders; I've been attempting these wrong for years! Reply Rev October 15, 2016 guy in the blue shirts biceps look so out of proportion…. Reply Inderjit Singh October 20, 2016 2:53 tall people have to do that Reply Sammy Lane May 11, 2017 The only thing I hate…HATE about doing chin ups is when guys leave the damn bar with oily lotion from oily lotion covered hands and now it is impossible to do even 1 single chin up/pull up!Guys..and ladies too!DO NOT PUT ON LOTION PRIOR TO WORKING AT IN A GYM OR A PUBLIC PARK….because other people need to/do use that same bar too! Reply Robert July 4, 2017 Thanks for these videos! I like how you emphasize good form.
