Hey all. In all the chinning articles I've read, this little tip never came up: look up. That is, pick a spot way up on the wall, ceiling, whatever, and pull yourself towards it. And keep looking up, don't start checking out the bar once you get near it. That may have been obvious to some people, but it never occured to me until yesterday. Granted, I'm a shitty chinner, but it improved my numbers right away, so it seems to me there's something to it. Someone more informed on the biomechanics of the movement can probably tell you why, but in the mean time, try it out next time you're in the gym.
