    if so, do you prefer pull-ups (gripping bar with hands facing away from self) or chin-ups (gripping bar w/ palms facing self)?

    do you allow legs to dangle, or remain straight like a pin? i like to remain straight as a pin or raise legs into a uniformed cross-legs position (like sitting 'indian position').

    anyone ? :)

    pull ups, and with a "kick"; you basically swing your body down, back, and thrust forward with your hips to get up over the bar, rinse and repeat. it's a little strange at first, but the rythmn gets you going.

    Pull-ups with the knees bent in. I've pretty much come to a stand still with my dumbbells. I do them whenever I get bored at the basketball court or want the extra pump. :cool:
