With the 2011 CrossFit Games Regionals Workouts announced ahead of the competition this year, we are fortunate enough to get a chance to break down some of the key gymnastics movements for you with some final coaching tips and cues. In this video, Carl talks about the Pull Ups, and strategies to preserve your hands to minimize suffering down the line.
There will be Pull Ups, and there will be a lot of them. And if you are not prepared, most likely your hands will tear from the volume and you'll put the subsequent workouts at risk. Recall the GWOD training you've done with practicing your false grips, and try to apply a bit of that grip to the bar to minimize rubbing and friction on your calluses - use your wrists instead to pivot, and it'll work whether you kip, butterfly, or do it strict like a beast.
