pull up technique question

I'm "coaching" a few people for PT in the mornings and two of them are new to pull-ups. They do fine on the gravatron, but when I move them to jumping, hanging, or using woody bands, their feet and legs swing out in front of them as soon as they get their feet in the air.

I think this might be a center of gravity "issue", but what techniques can I use to teach them how to keep their feet and kegs under them during the pull up?

Re: pull up technique question

For strict pull ups, have them bend their knees and assist them with upward pressure on their ankles. This will keep their hips under their shoulders. you could give them as much or as little assistance as they need.
