Using the Pull Up to gain explosive strength (with video)

The Pull Up can be used in so many different ways, and gaining explosive strength there can be achieved. In this video, you can see how switching your grip can benefit the strength of your back, biceps, forearm and hand strength. Performing an Explosive Switch Grip Pull Up will tire you out quickly though, because you will be moving mighty fast during the motion. Watch your shoulders and try to keep them back as you perform the motion.

And be careful, because a miss on grabbing the bar might mean you'll fall, hopefully wih just an injury to your pride :)
