Bodybuilder Meets Climber

A video introducing bodybuilders to the training of climbers over a range of exercises (it is in German but with English subtitles).

What I found particularly telling was the ROM in the chinning.  The climber repeatedly pulls sternum to bar whereas the bodybuilder barely gets his elbows at 90 degrees during this exercise.  He is barely doing more than half a chin and losing a lot of benefit of the chin as an exercise.
