Re: My chin went over that bar

i think the even better feeling than my chin going over the bar was a week later when i didn't have to push my chin as far up as possible just to get it over hehe

Re: My chin went over that bar

I GOT TEN PULL UPS YESTERDAY!
all in one, beautiful, swift set. No stopping and hanging and re-kipping for me!

I've been chasing this number for months.
just had to share my excitement. :]

Re: My chin went over that bar

keeping up the improvement - I got 13 in one movement without re-kipping last week. Yaaay!

Gayle, thanks for the support!
and honestly, the only advice I can give is to just keep kipping!! and keep the kip explosive. I find that when I'm thinking about it too much, my kip slows down and it just doesn't happen.

and Laura -- how is it that you have strict pull ups and no kip?? I'm in completely the opposite situation. I've been training with a jumpstretch band even - but when I try for a dead hang pull up I just get stuck and can't seem to pull my self up past a 90 degree angle at the elbow! it's SO frustrating!! Do you have any tips? :]
