You replied to my training thread so I'm guessing you saw my pull-ups there too. The "negative" part of the pull up refers to the "eccentric" part of the motion (going down), as opposed to the "concentric" part of the motion (contracting the muscle). Accentuating and controlling the negatives is a big part of my training in all exercises since that is, arguably, where most muscle hypertrophy (growth) occurs from.

Vid of the pull up:

As you can see, my negatives are controlled and slow. Whereas you have other people just DROP before each rep.
