Kipping Pull ups
The next pulling movement and the first in the kipping movements is the Kipping Pull up.
We use Kipping Pull ups to be more efficient and to allow us to move with intensity through workouts. If you are looking to build strength in the pull, stick with Strict Pull ups.
The most important part of the kip is the positioning of the Hollow and Arch, you should always fight to keep these two positions. Film yourself and compare to this video.
How often and when -
We recommend that you work through the progressions as they are laid out in this video. Move on when your video look like Pete. Yes, this might take time but will help you out in the long run. We hear "you make that look easy" that's because we practice and demo these good movement patterns over and over again.
Any of these can also be used to scale Kipping pull ups in the class (workout dependant) ask your coach for which would be the best option. These will differ due to workout stimulus.
If you have any questions, please give Liam, Pete or Laura a shout.
