Re:Help: Normal wide grip pull ups or pyrometric ones?
You mean plyometric?..Pyro would be setting fire to things..Ha ha..
Plyometrics are used to develop explosive motion.With the example of clap press ups,you push up so explosively that your hands leave the floor.
I'm not sure if the same would work with chin ups.
You could do a pull up and let go of the bar,but i feel they would be two seperate motions as opposed to pulling so explosively that you "take off".
I know a lot of mma fighters who train with kettlebells.Movements like the overhea snatch,horizontal snatch,etc(which can also be done with a dumbell) is a pulling motion.
