What is the superior chin up position and why is it close grip?
Just outside of shoulder width is best imo
Always lol when I see people that think super wide grip works lats more
Close grip is nice I guess if you're more focused on arms, but you can always just do regular ass curls and hit them harder anyways so kinda pointless imo
he said which "chin up" grip position is better, you faggot.
talking about grip width.
everyone knows pull ups are harder, and everyone knows chin ups are better for targeting lats.
the debate is wide grip vs close grip.
and close grip is objectively better as it increases ROM for the lats.
retract your scapula and curve your spine more.
the lats cannot fully contract with out a slight curve to the spine (extension, not flexion)
Doing reverse grip or "chin ups" targets your biceps and is great I guess if you're working back and bi's that day. Wide grip lat pull ups are hella more efficient for lat width. You'd use the same grip as if you were performing a "lat pull down." If you wanna target more of your back just work with a lot of row based exercises and lat exercises lol.
which type would you guys say is better for pic related?
>Collectively, a medium grip may have some minor advantages over small and wide grips; however, athletes and others engaged in resistance training can generally expect similar muscle activation which in turn should result in similar hypertrophy gains with a grip width that is 1-2 times the biacromial distance.
>Facts are core who don't best you're chinups. Exercise.
Enjoy your noob gains and nothing more
im not saying i want to go to that extreme, but just wondering how he got that lmuch lat development
yeah im trying to research his workouts now, from what i remember reading about him in the past he was only into bodyweight exercises, no weight training
Have you ever watched Crossfitters do their thing? I could see that term being used to describe it.
That being said, constantly hopping between different exercises or programs is bad mkay, it doesn't work, choose one and get better at that
People don't know what the term implies, and so they think it's a troll.
It basically comes down to adjusting your routine after you've adapted to certain exercises and are having a hard time progressing.
>no weight training
