Friday Rest Day


Nick makes the greatest faces.  If today isn’t your rest day make up a missed workout or come see what is on the board.  Below is some correspondence I received from Annie Sakamoto regarding keeping the kip with the new pull up standard:

As for chest to the bar pull ups, what you probably need to work on is more explosiveness from the hip to get you that extra few inches. Did you ever see Adrian Bozman’s kipping speal on the main site. He teaches a different kip than I taught you back then, and in fact, I now use his method when teaching the kip. It seems to get the hip involved a bit more, and could be more helpful when trying to get those few extra inches.

as for me, I haven’t been really doing too many chest to bar pull ups as I am now 7 1/2 mos. pregnant. I’m happy when I get 10 in a row with my chin above the bar 🙂

Hope everything else is going good. And I hope this helps a bit.

    I’ve never seen Boz’s speal on kipping. Is there another kind of kip other than the gymnastic, frog, or butterfly?
