How do i take my kipping to the next level?

Hi all,

Ok i just did my first kipups and the felt quit good. I just followed the vid's from Adrian and they really work
(Adrian Teaches Kipping, Part I to Part III)

But how can i skip the back-front-back and knees so i can speed up the kipups?? Any vids would be awesome.

regards

Do a search for "butterfly kip."

Do you mean that you're unnecessarily swinging at the bottom? Just put your legs forward of the bar as you come down, then put your body past the bar with the legs going back (arch), then hollow and knees.

If you're talking about a vertical kip, it's kind of similar except that it's not. Minimize that back-forward motion and go faster. Unfortunately, practice is the only thing that can really teach it. Look at videos of AFT and Annie to get some ideas of what a vertical kip looks like in comparison to an Eva style kip. Yours might look a little different.

Butterfly kip is a different story - it's not the only way to go faster.

@Derek Maffett, yes i meant the unnecessarily swinging on the bottom. I know i need to practice more, but all advice is welcome.

Am i correct to assume you need a sort of rythm to make your kipping optimal??

Yes, you need to find the proper rhythm for the movement. This is probably the hardest part and cannot be taught, only helped along - you have to find it yourself.

Thanks to Leonid Soubbotine for this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYDUH55IVLs wfs

Notice how his legs go forward when he comes down - that was what put the whole thing together for me (though I still tend to be a vertical kipper).

"Next level" is kind of vague. How many can you do now and how many do you want to do?

Next level as in chaining them together.

Yes, you need to find the rhythm. Once you found your rhythm, then try focusing on the "reverse C" movement through your shoulders instead of creating the momentum with your legs.

True that. I totally misread the first post.


I really don't have much else to say except to keep practicing and and trying minimizing extra swinging. At first it might be hard, but eventually you will learn to relax when you need to and be tense when you need to, the voila, your kips should be better and you will never come off the pull-up bar. Good luck.
