The Strict Pull-Up

ByCrossFitFebruary 1, 2019

“The goal in your pull-up work is ‘more.’ You want, you need, more pull-ups. The more you can do, the stronger you become. Muscular endurance, absolute strength, relative strength — whatever you want to define and measure gets better. Every personal-best pull-up is an event worthy of celebration. You’re going to live to be 100, but you’ll not get that many pull-ups, so treat the new ones like birthdays.”
—Greg Glassman

What is a "Full Grip"? Do the Crossfit movement standards require you to use a supinated grip for strict pull-ups?

I just actually re-read that article last night, and when I read this excerpt I immediately thought of the Chris Spealler 100 pull-up video.
