I know this topic has been beat to death, but as I am new to crossfit, I want to do the newbie thing and ask about pull ups. The pic attached is of my power rack that I use for everything. The pull up bar is a little under 7 feet high so I can do jumping pull ups from the ground. The bar is not straight though and I am wondering if this might have something to do with the difficulty I have getting up there?
I can keep my grip close and do chin ups with my grip facing me, but when I turn my hands over or place them to the outside I just can't get up there. From a dead hang and with my grip facing me, I can do about 6 chin ups. WIth my grip facing away, I can jump up and hold for around 15 seconds and I can lower myself slowly with no problem. Hurts my biceps, but not my back. The question is am I just missing something or is all that normal and I just need to keep working on pull ups? When I get some more room, I will get a straight bar a little higher up and work on kipping, but in the meantime is there something to my form or do I need to suck it up and get stronger?
