To perform pull ups with control (i.e. with no swaying or kicking) you will be using core muscles (i.e. abs) to keep your body steady through the motion of the rep. I find that my abs do get tired when i do pullups, and I can feel it even more in my abs when my back gets closer to failure.

Oh and palms away from you grip emphasizes the back most- palms in towards you grip places more emphasis on bi's, i believe. I definitely feel it more in my back with my palms out.

a nice wide grip! bring your head just above the bar and pause and squeeze to get the pump!!!!
