Introduction: Pull Up

Any grip is fine. "Kipping pull ups" are encouraged, if skill level is there. Other modification is a jumping pull up. Stand under the bar, jump and grab hold, then pull up. Repeat. More fitness information at Active.com.

    it could probably be done both ways but i found it effective by palm facing out

    im used like that also but i read it has to be done with your palm facing out

     Yes, like what eriq9 said, she is doing a chin-up, which works your biceps, a pull up is fingers face away from you, and it is much harder than a chin-up.

    I thought chin up and pull up were used interchangeably :P

    ur supposed to let ur arms go strait for more of a challenge if u can

    that is a chin-up! a pull-up is where you use your lats, front deltoids and upper forearm muscles with your fingers forward! silly psa-spam rabbit!! plus, "cheating" a pull-up or chin-up isn't as beneficial as doing "negatives" for gaining strength and proper form. to do negatives, get a stool or spotter to put you at the highest position of the 'up' ; hold on to the bar, and go down the slowest you can. try your best to keep your body moving as fluidly as possible towards having your arms fully extended. do this for a few sessions; this exercise will build you up much quicker toward doing a proper full range pull-up or chin-up and won't encourage the bad form that 'cheating" one by jumping or pumping your legs will. once you can do one properly, you will feel it working! the pull-up is definitely (much harder for most) but more beneficial than a chin-up though.
