John,

I have the same problem when I do L Pullups on rings - the combination
of the shoulder position and the bending just kills my pull.

I don't think it's a matter of the elbow flexors (Biceps, Brachialis?) , after all, you
ARE able to do those pullups - to me it feels like going to full extension at the bottom somehow disengages the back muscles making it much more difficult to start the movement.

Other than to kip, one way I find useful is to lean back slightly as to create an angle between
your body and the bar when starting to pull.

I would also love to hear some insights about this.

Asaf
