I pinch them for the 1st rep, i use suicide grip (thumbs not on the bar), and when i bring the bar to my chin, i try my best to squeeze the shoulder blades…but what i mean is that each time u let the bar return to the starting position, one should let the back muscles to extend and then contract them…

  19. back is really so important in long run

  20. Good tip as far as body form, but I'm also interested in practical uses of placing your hands at different places on the bar. For example I've seen guys use a wide grip and I've seen guys use a very close grip.

  33. what I still fail to understand is the range of motion!! on the -ve, do we go to full lockout or just short of a lockout!?

  34. Great vid., but I have to disagree with the need to arch your back. You can arch your back if you want to work on your upper lats, but if you want to work on your lower lats, then you need to keep your back straight and bring the bar below your chest.
