I'm trying to learn to kip. The how to video on wod has been a great help. But I'm wondering when I should breath. So far, I think I've skipped the breathing. Obviously, I'm going to have to start, or the reps are going to be limited....

For starters, exhale on effort, starting with the kip. Relax and passively inhale as you drop down to full arm extension. Once you have that down, you can sophisticate your breathing.

Here's an article you may find helpful:

Happy training!

Uh...I breath when I can. Usually you can't time your breathing with motion...because the WOD is so freaking hard. After a 200m run, and 21 KB swings, the 21 kipping pullups don't come with one breath per pullup, more like 3 or 4 per pull! Let it come naturally and don't hold your breath.
