Re: Are Kipping HSPU really more work done

Like Scott was almost leading to, If a workout calls for strict pullups and you kip, it is scaling.

On another note, I love pullups, all pullups, Love strict weighted to kipping. At my best I have BF kipped 40 chest to bar, and 105lbs weighted dead hang pullups. But kipping and strict pullups are not the exact same work.

Yes you move the same mass the same distance but not the same way.

Kipping pull ups are here to stay. When done well they don't look that stupid in a normal gym environment. Kipping HSPU look ridiculous and are a stupid movement. Go to any non Crossfit gym and knock out some kipping hspu and you will get laughed at. Go to the same gym and do some weighted vest strict hspu, what happens then?

I know this as I have done both in globos
Either kipping is scaling or not. And who cares what someone in a globo thinks, the majority of the idiots in there don't know what the hell their doing anyway.

Yes kipping is scaling. I only use is because I compete in Crossfit Competition.

I personally do not care what anyone thinks. My point being that if you do not know how and why the kipping hspu developed it will appear to an outsider as a ridiculous and pointless exercise and I agree with them.

Re: Are Kipping HSPU really more work done

No disrespect but most of you guys don't perform strict HS pushups even when you perform strict HS pushups, so I'm not sure why you are getting all worked up about this! Maybe they are stricter compared to KHSPU but against the wall, banana stands are not going to win gold for form are they?

To me kipping versions are a different movement, a different exercise that shares the same namesake and goal, namely getting the chin over the bar or the head above straight arms, and that's as far as it goes.

Not hearing too many complaints about the kipping MU - why is that?

Because you wouldn't see anyone finish a WOD with strict ones that require high reps

Oh I complain plenty about kipping Mus and am a fan of strict Mus myself. I expecially don't like the no false grip supper 0 gravity kip.

What is a strict HSPU that you are talking about? fee stand HSPUs?
