    Hello so I’ve started implementing pull ups into my workout. Should I do pull ups/chin ups to failure? When pulling up then back down should my arms be fully extended?

     

    thanks

    Al covered this in a recent Ask Al, he basically says going to failure is OK sometimes but doing it all of the time will likely be excessive and, in the long run, impede your ability to recover. The biggest concern with doing pull ups to failure is the possibility of over stressing the tendons if you aren’t conditioned enough for that kind of effort/volume. And yes, ideally you will be coming down to a full elbow lockout at the bottom.
