requires – that these pull-ups to be performed quickly and explosively. Here’s the checklist. Start from the top of the movement with head above the bar. From this static hold drop as quickly as possible to the bottom position, all the while pushing the shoulders away from the bar and the hips towards the bar so that the body is in a kind of inverted “C” posture. Let your legs bend at the knees so that the heels face backward/upward. The better you get at this movement, the freer your legs will bend and the faster you will be able to drop while maintaining control. From the bottom position, explode your hips forward and upward as you pull up. Pull hard and get the head as high above the bar as possible. Once the set is started, there is no stopping or pausing. From the top position drop down again and keep the momentum going. When fatigue sets in, or if the “groove” is lost, you’ll have to stop. I don’t look at kipping pull-ups as being better or worse/easier or harder than the traditional version. If you can already do 15+ pull-ups at a time, adding the kipping technique to your routine will provide an additional challenge while breaking the monotony. Besides, seems to me that to get out of trouble in a real-world situation you’d use as much of your strength and as many of your muscles as possible in order to pull yourself up. My thought is that by using the kipping technique you’re adding more muscle groups to the mix, which is always preferable. And the added stress that’s put on your grip muscles while doing kipping pull-ups will make regular pull-ups easier to do. Certainly, you still need to be able to perform “strict” pull-ups, but kipping pull-ups provide us with an interesting and effective variation.
