Re-Do ~ The Kipping Pull Up

By 08/16/2012 No Comments

As we tend to our torn hands and look back at the week that was at Anchor we realize we’ve done about 75,000 pull ups this week.  A lot of athletes are working on perfecting the pull up so we wanted to offer some additional support.  We posted the kipping pull up tutuorial about a week ago but want to revisit the importance of the movement.  Like peanut butter to jelly, like ham to hamburger… the kipping pull up is to CrossFit 🙂

From the CrossFit Journal on Kipping pull ups, “Kipping comes in a myriad of styles, and each athlete has a signature kip, but in its most elegant form the kip is a transference of movement first generated in the horizontal plane, where it comes cheap and easy, to the vertical plane, where momentum and a perfectly timed pull from the back launch the athlete forcefully upward.

CrossFit games competitor Jason Khalipa explains the kipping pull up.
