Milestone Met: The Kipping Pull-Up!

Posted Jan 19 2010 7:37pm

As I’ve moved rapidly through the pull-up bands, I’m almost to the END of the band selection!  Our pull-up bands offer help based on weight.  I started on Blue back in November.  Graduated to Light green sometime in December (or early January) and now as of yesterday, I. can. now. do. a kipping pull-up!!  Whoo Hooo…It’s party time over here.  Yes, that’s right. Yours truly is now fully capable of a pull-up.

So, below is a great example of me doing it…except I have no idea how to flip the frame! Apologies, but too excited to wait another day to post this.
And, you can here my trainer in the background…dead lifts followed FRAN today!  It seems that every time we do a new workout- which is every single day – I almost have to relearn the skill.  Fran consists of only Thrusters and Pull-ups (21, 15, 9) but, the objective is to go FAST and HARD.  First time for me is almost like an experiment.  Next time, I will be more ready to kick some booty!

Or, for those of you, who’d like to see me right side up, I did it again in our garage tonight. Notice those gloves…My hands are completely trashed with callouses and blisters and I finally broke down and bought some Easton women’s batting gloves.

Glad to be able to share my milestones here!
