I'd keep those elbow bends strict, otherwise you might spill your weights.

Kipping is stupid. :stir:

Get your strict numbers up, learn to kip, and in the real world, when you and your ninja commando jedi team are swinging from tree branch to tree branch and need to go faster, then you can kip. Other than that, just get real strong pulling hard. This "functional real world application" BS is weak logic.
