Are dead hang pull ups bad for your joints? if so is it any better than the stress heavy weight lifting puts on your joints?

It's okay as long as you don't do dead hang chin-ups and let your body do a free fall while still holding the bar ;D

With good form neither is any worse than the other..

Going down low until you're just about hanging is fine, if you maintain muscle control and engagement the whole you should be fine. The main thing is that you don't just drop down then literally hang there, that stresses your elbows and you shouldn't do it.

Even heavy weight lifting isn't bad on your joints IF done with correct form and preparation.

The key to not getting injured is always good form, good preparation.

Why would dead hangs be bad for elbows, anymore than wrists or shoulders? Any type of resistance exercise is going to stress the joints involved. That's a good thing IMO, and makes them stronger.

When i first got started I felt a lot of stress in all my joints...shoulders, wrists, and elbows. They would often lag in recovery time compared to the surrounding muscles until I started taking tumeric.

I just started trail running and my feet and ankles are feeling a lot of stress. I dont mind because i know they will adapt.
