kipping pull up on WOD's, or regular?

I am going to try the Angie WOD for the first time in the morning. I was just wondering if you are supposed to do normal pull ups or kipping pull ups? Or does it not matter if you finish the workout?

Thanks!

Unless the workout specifically calls for deadhang pullups, you're allowed to do whatever you want as I understand it.

Kinda like how in 'freestyle' swimming you can swim however you want, but everyone does the front crawl

Always assume kipping (butterfly, gymnastic) unless specified 'strict'. Of course, if you need to work on strength in your pull-up, feel free to do strict anyways. I wouldn't recommend strict for Angie because that may take a very long time...unless you are an absolute beast. (Angie, all pull-ups must be completed before moving on to push-ups and all of those must be completed before moving on...etc)

Hands being shreaded is a form issue in my mind. I did it and hands are fine.

Cool thanks. No one was replying so I was going to ask what about the other WOD's?

Angie was tough! Took me forever, but I finished it!

I think the "dont do it then" approach is what gives crossfit a bad name and scares some people away, learn the proper grip and it will help.
