Pull protocol to follow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_zfFHwgBDY
Proper Pullup form starts by fully hanging on a pullup bar. Grip the bar shoulder-width apart with straight arms (palms can face you (chin up) or turned away (pullup). Pull yourself up by pulling your elbows to the floor. Keep pulling until your chin passes the bar. Lower yourself all the way down until your arms are straight.
KEEP TRACK OF WHERE YOU STAND HERE. NAMES WILL BE ADDED AS PEOPLE BEGIN THEIR TRIALS.
Chin up OR Pull Up
** For athletes that have arm or shoulder issues and cannot medically perform a pull-up – you have the option to do a FLEX ARM HANG, here is the flex arm hang protocol.
The starting position is with the chin above the bar, and both feet off the ground. You can reach the starting position by standing on a support, or if necessary assisted by others. The grip can be either with both palms facing forward or to the rear, though with both facing in the same direction. The aim of the test is to hold this position for as long as possible. The timer is started when the Participant is in position with chin above the bar and does not stop until chin touches or falls below the bar. The feet may not touch the floor during the test.
