    6'2" about 155 :\

    that might have something to do with it. just started trying to gain some weight about 2 months ago (was at 145). another case of fast metabolism. its tough to gain but at least i'm seeing improvement.

    start with a relaxed back, pull up with a linear movement (not a full body slingshot to throw you over the bar :hsugh:) to the top of arm movement (which turns out to be a bit above chin level). lower down steady, and repeat.

    the last 2 or 3 are pretty rough, so theres a bit of swinging in them.

    You will actually get better development by retracting the shoulders in the hang position.
