Introduction: Pull Up

About: Join me on Facebook: St Allen

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.

     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

    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.
