‘Rush’ wrote, “keep your body straight and aligned during the exercise. Reverse your grip and pull your chest towards the bar.”

The last line is to reduce strain on the wrist while pulling oneself up. It is visible in the video on a second glance.

For the push-up Rush says, “Keep your body straight and aligned throughout the exercise. Keep your elbows tight and your forearms motionless and perpendicular to the ground throughout the movement.”

The latest video is similar to the one shared by ‘Rush’ a week ago. In that exercise, he uses the opposite grip for his pull-ups.
