Most authors generally agree that each chin up rep should be preceded by a short pause, or dead hang, at the bottom of each rep to train in the most athletic style. Using this technique is a lot harder than pumping out reps fast by using the stretch reflex, and the benefits seem to reflect that.
Since each individual rep is harder, perhaps it’s better for hypertrophy as well. So I’m curious how the people here train.
Pause at the bottom of each rep or use stretch reflex for the next rep?
PS While this guy is strong, I wouldn’t classify these pull ups as dead hang.
