Question Kippling Pull-Ups Vs. Dead Hanging Pull-Ups

What is the advantage to doing Kippling Pull-Ups vs. Dead Hanging Pull-Ups? Is one easier than the other. Do you do the Kippling Pull-ups so that you can do more pull-ups. I am just curious what everyone thinks is better and why they do what they do.

Chris,
Head over to the 'Exercises' forum and do a search for kipping pullups, there's already a bunch of threads that have covered this in much detail.

This has been debated for years and will always be debated. Do both. Watch the videos and see why kipping is the default.

There's a section in the FAQ that describes why it is the default style.

I believe kipping are a much more dynamic exercise. More muscles used = good.

Now that I'm getting the kip down, I like it. When I looked like an idiot trying to learn it, I thought the dead hang was superior. Funny about that.

Depends on what you're going for. If you want to rock your metabolic socks, kippings probably better. If you want to increase your upper body pulling strength, weighted pull ups are probably better.. and it's hard to kip with a bunch of weight strapped to your waist...
