Shoulder and Hip Action

Shoulder and Hip Action

Gretchen shows in the picture below how a dynamically loaded position at the absolute bottom of the kipping pull ups – with her shoulders extended way out in front of the bar and her legs behind – sets her up to get a tremendous amount of horizontal momentum from both her shoulders and hips. Then, all she has to do is convert that to vertical motion – and she pops right up over the bar. Nice kip, Gretchen!
