Awesome work, Jenni!

I am only getting to this episode today after download, but I knew Jenni would make it fun.

I had the same experience, btw, with grip position and chest to bar pullups. If I'm holding the bar in the 'finger wrap' grip, it's almost impossible to get ctb. On the other hand, getting my knuckles above/even with the top of the bar makes it possible. It was nice to hear confirmation of that experience from your end.

Wishing you well at the Regionals! Paul
