Sticky Thread Sticky: The Bench Form Thread

Pull Up vs Chin Up

I've noticed that most programs have pull ups and not chin ups. My thinking is that this is so the lift is more focused on the lats.

Bros, come celebrate with me

Hit a 505 conventional deadlift today. Not bad for doing it like twice a year. Also can press 90 lbs dumbbells on the high incline now but usually stick to 85s in the 7-9 rep range. Come and get some reps.
