Improving starting power from dead hang pullups
« on: August 13, 2011, 07:26:49 am »

Hey guys,
i have been doing a lot of bodyweight stuf and my 1/2 medium rom pullups from the standing position is 2 but when i try doing dead hang pullups i cant seems to get up at all and end up just hanging there.

i was wondering i know i can keep increasing my 1/2 rom pullups, but do you guys have any tips or exercises to have more starting power when doing dead hand pullups?

thanks again

Try doing some sets of full rom eccentrics.

What he meant is you go full ROM but with someone behind you that helps you by pushing on your feet JUST A BIT so it takes some of your bodyweight away.

 Lean in between your arms at the bottom, make sure to really stretch the lats out before you start the pull.  You get a more dynamic start this way.  Do a couple of sets of just the bottom range (first 4 inches or so) explosively.  It shouldnt take you long to get better at it.
Relax.
