Tuesday's Coach's Tip brought to you by Coach Nickole...
"If we were testing upper body/pulling absolute strength, we would be performing a max strict (weighted) pull up. Today, we will be working on upper body pulling muscular endurance by executing pull ups over a defined period of time. This is a great time to work on pull up efficiency. Whether you are just learning how to kip, or working on your butterfly technique - the goal is to move efficiently the full 30 seconds of work. Here are some tips to become more efficient:
1. Arch hollow swing: This is a great drill to do as a warm up, or a progression to learn the kipping action. Keep your glutes tight and initiate movement with your shoulders and rib cage.
2. Kipping Pullup: To string pull ups together, once your chin is over the bar, push your body away from the bar. This will generate a kipping action and will help string your pullups together!
3. Butterfly Pullup: If you have butterfly pullups, work on keeping your legs straight and initiating the movement from the hips. Not only does it look prettier, it will be less fatiguing/more efficient!"
**SCHEDULE UPDATE** Today's 7am class will be cancelled. We will resume regular 7am classes on Thursday. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
