Building a Better Pull-Up

We worked on kipping pull-ups back at the end of December, and a lot of you made great progress then.  This week we’re working on them again.  Learning a kipping pull-up will develop better control of your body in space and core to extremity strength, as well as making any workouts that include pull-ups suck less.  Not only will you be able to do more pull-ups faster, but you won’t have to get into and out of a band every time you want to get some reps, which will also allow you to do more work more quickly.

  1. Be sure to “skip to finish” when you’re done – your vote won’t count if you don’t give them an email address and finish the voting process. Thanks!

  2. I voted…but dont have the tech savvy to use any of the other methods mentioned above! If the gym wins, can I get one free step on the rope ladder get out of burpee free card?
