It's called kipping. I wouldn't worry about it too much right now. Just try to do the dips as fast as you can and eventually you will develop a kip. One important thing to watch on your dip form is that you should keep your torso upright and don't bend your back.

Yep sorry just saw my iPad auto corrected everywhere I typed kipping! Lol

Re: Good time for Hero WOD JT?
Thanks for the advice. I have always worked out played football in college so I have pretty much just converted normal dips on a dip station into the rings and used the same form. Also, while talking about the kipping and butterfly pull-ups and the like, I see a ton of posts on here about shoulder problems being associated with kipping and strict form is the best way to go. Thoughts? Since I'm fairly new to this high intensity workout I'm just reading everything I can find. Starting to get overwhelming!

I did this one today and finished in 11:22. I used a band on the ring dips and had my feet on a 24" box for the HSPU. This was my second time doing this WOD and first with this tougher scaling. The push ups were broken into 3's, ring dips in 5's and the HSPU 5's. This WoD is very deceiving. My chest, shoulders and tri's hate me right now.

Tried this today, kipping HSPU and ring dips, all legit reps.

9:27 on this one...did it today. Will try it again in another month as I continue to work on my HSPU and dips and overall BW movements. I think I can get through the 21 HSPU's faster and I don't think it will cost me much in the rd of 15's.

4:57 .. hspu were kipping and on point.. dips were ok. Push ups were the hardest.

They should have a kipping JT and a strict JT.. strict hspu, strict dips and hrpu…

7:33 with strict HSPU. This one was hard as soon as the 21 ring dips were done.
