    ChinUp Deadhang?

    I have to stretch my latisimus more, therefore I am already doing a loaded "butcherblock" stretch. But as I was doing ChinUps yesterday, I thought, this is a similar move, and I felt a good stretch in the bottom position of the ChinUp.

    So my question is:
    Is there sth. negative about a ChinUp deadhang? Is it bad for tendons/shoulders/elbows etc.?

    I am sure that someone with more knowledge of physiology will know this better, but I can't really see why it would be. It is taking a dynamic movement that is already a generally acceptable exercise and changing it to a static one.

      CaptainCanuck That is what I think, too. But due to my tightness in lats, middle back and forearms, it is hard to perform, cause there is a lot of pain, I guess it is stretchpain... but who knows...

      I guess I will try to start with resting bit longer in the bottom position while performing ChinUps.
      Always be gentle to yourself...

        To me the chin-ups put a lot of stress on the elbows but it is only my experience from what I have read anyway the elbows are the critical area for that type of exercise

          Here is a lat-stretch with a chin-uppy posture. As always Jeff adds a couple of dimensions.
