They just don’t know what to look for. I’m hoping to narrow that gap with this thread. I’m not going to touch on everything,...

Pull-ups - Feel Triceps More than Back?

When I do pull-ups I feel my triceps are getting more work than my back. Is there a reason why I feel my triceps firing up? I use rings instead of a bar. Should I switch to a bar, or change my grip position? I heard that the thickness of the bar can also affect performance.
