OHP crooked barbell

At the top of every rep my left hand is higher than my right hand, so that the barbell locks out unevenly. Is this a problem I need to fix? My right arm is generally stronger than my left, so I don't think it's a strength imbalance. BTW, how to...

Exclamation Hour Glass Shape - Men - A Little Different to Previous Threads About This

Hey everyone First, I should note, I did search the forums and read previous threads on this - but the bulk seemed to be about men who were already several months (or longer) into bodybuilding itself and the hourglass shape being a result of this. If there is an existing thread that addresses my...

Gymnastic stretching and lifting

Is this a chin up or a pull up?

I have a choice between 2 handle bar type bars and then 2 bars where my palms face inwards. I use the latter. But is it a chin up or pull up, and which is better to building arm muscles?
