Pull-in (biceps) or Push-out (triceps)  (18)

Training/Jens: Moving upwards means that you either bend or straighten your arms by using your bicep or triceps muscles. There is nothing in between, you either Pull-in or Push-out when you are searching for sequences. Often climbers have a dominated style and it might be a good idea to waken up and recruit your weak link to not get stuck a crux with only one style of climbing.

Pull-in is normally used together with knee-drops and Push-out (gaston) are used on high step moves.Two climbers can use the opposites techniques on identical moves as they have different muscles and flexibility in their hips/knees.
