I will take a photo or two and show you.
I like it so that when you stand on your toes you can just touch it with the tips of your fingers, by just pushing off enought to raise yourself about an inch off the ground I can fully grasp the bar, and of course at that point my legs have a slight bend in them as the feet are slightly behind the center of the body, so I am free-hanging with a full lockout before begining a set of pull ups.
When you just have to jump up an inch or so to grasp the bar you are grasping it with arms fully straight anyway. It is actually harder to jump up on a bar with slightly bent arms and begin a pull up, anyone who has tried it no doubt will agree.
Look at the photo link on the Groups page, that will give you an idea, the pull up bar in my yard is almost an inch higher then that portable bar I was using.

hi matt,question when you do your pull ups do you do them so you
have a bar higher enough so you can hang full length and still clear
the floor with your feet,or hook your legs up,

up at the end,good engine luckily!!!
