Are you wanting yours? Check out these tips to get you there:

  • To get the false grip – hold onto the ring in the center at the bottom and slide the wrist over and grip.
  • Keep the the elbows underneath the rings during the pullup portion of the movement.
  • Keep the elbows in close, don’t let them fly out or you will put too much pressure on your elbows and possibly injure them.
  • When you kip, drive the knees straight up, you want to transfer the energy up, not out.
  • Pullup up to the chest and trace the hands/rings around your pectoral muscles to right underneath the armpits. Don’t allow the rings to go behind you or you will be making the transition more difficult than needed.
  • Keep your torso upright in the whole movement or you will be breaking the transfer of energy.

Today’s Workout:

Buy-in: 3x (5 overhead squats (bar), 1 turkish get up per side, 10 jumping jacks)

If your hands are torn up, perform the wallballs each round.
