I tried my first L-Pullups today. I was only able to manage 1-2. I found it very difficult to break the dead hang. Any suggestions?

Push on the bar. Initiate by pressing the bar forward. You should feel a lat engagement. Full L-pullups to open shoulders at the bottom are hard. They will get easier as you work them.

Thanks. That made a big difference. It actually feels a lot safer too. I felt a strain in my shoulders before.
