Pull up ROM issues...

Does anyone else notice a drastic difference in range of motion when switching grips with pull ups? Whenever I do them, I notice that with the supinated grip I can usually get pretty high, almost chest to bar, but with the pronated grip I really struggle to get full ROM, even though I can do a decent number dead hang (10+).

Its really obvious when I do them weighted, tonight I did sets of 3 with 40 lbs and was getting great ROM with my supinated sets, but the pronated ones wouldn't really count to most people, even when I busted em down to 25 lbs....what gives?

Re: Pull up ROM issues...

You get used to one or the other and eventually get stronger at it faster than the other. If you practiced the other one more then you would get better at it too.
