Pull-Up Bar Height for Kipping

I made my own pull-up freestanding station and it works pretty well so far. However, I'm only doing dead-hangs for the moment (poorly, but doing them) and I really need to start working on my kip. I'm 5'10" (or 5'9" depending on what 7-Eleven store I walk in and out of). My pull-up bar is 6 feet tall, but if I have to, I can get extra galvanized pipe and a couple of couplers to increase the height (not too high though, I have to mind the ceiling )

How tall should you have a pull-up bar to do kipping pull-ups?

Re: Pull-Up Bar Height for Kipping

You're not any taller when you do a kipping PU. Maybe add an inch or two beyond the 6'0" to account for your toes pointing down a bit on the swing.
