So I have been doing wide overhand grip pullups on a pullup/chin-up bar for the past month now and the number of reps that I can do has significantly increased. However, whenever I use the pullups/chin-up bar I am never able to bring my upper chest to the bar except for when I do the close underhand grip chin-up variation.
I have already looked up Nate Green’s pullup article on how to execute pullups with good form and so I did try sticking out my chest throughout the entire ROM of each rep, but i still have not been able to bring my upper chest to the bar. I don’t have any other equipment around that I can use to help me with my pullup form like a giant rubber band or what have you. So what’s going’ on, why am I not able to do this?
