Movements Gymnastics Pull-up

Overview & Demo

Hanging from a bar (or any kind of support), using both hands and starting with arms fully extended, raise yourself until your chin exceeds the height of the bar. Varying hand grips can be used, including overhand, underhand, or switch grip (one hand overhand, one hand underhand). In addition, numerous styles exist. Strict, kipping, and butterfly kipping utilise different body parts and muscles to achieve the same goal: to raise the chin above the height of the support.
