  • Usss Ud Pt

    Hi I was just wondering during the pullups portion of the PT test, can you do the pullups either way? I was just curious b/c underhand(palms in) I can do 22, and palms out I can do 15...will this be sufficient?
    Also, when it comes to situps, do you have your hands behind the head or crossed across the chest? Thanks!

    I may have this in the wrong order but I think


    Pullups---palms facing away

    Chinups--palms facing you
    Leave Space Empty

      The pullups must be done palms facing you, full extension on the way down, chin above the bar and no "kipping".

      Situps are done with the hands crossed over the chest.

        What is "kipping"

          Kipping is when you thrust your knees up as you are pulling up with your arms, it makes the pullup/chinup easier.

            Sometimes when they send you the info it says pull ups...but they are really testing you for chin ups if you want real info. You are tested on a chinup (palm towards you). BUT, you will do pull ups during your course. One chinup is arms fully extended hanging...hang yourself for 2 secs fully stretched and then pull up till chin is over the bar. No doing (rocking) of the body and knees cant come up high. Good luck
