Flagging, drop knee, body tension, knee bar, more for cracks. Go and look them up.

Same as all other climbing. Get your weight onto your feet (heel-toe etc hooking, oppositional footwork to make your handholds feel more positive ie. dropknee and flagging) keep your arms unbent when possible (aka strait) and move from your core.
When in doubt, pull really hard.
