Kip Swing Clinic
Master the various kip swings
The "Kip" is a very important movement in crossfit. It allows an athlete to add intensity, speed, and volume to their workouts buy adding a powerful component . . . your hips!
In order to prevent injury, before incorporating a kip, it is best to have enough strength in the shoulders/upper body to complete the same movements you intend to kip, but strict. For Example: strict pull-up before kipping.

What should I bring?
We will be on the pull-up bars for the entire hour so make sure you bring tape, grips, or gloves. Consider doing some hand maintenance leading up the the event as well.
What is the goal of the clinic?
The goal for the clinic is for everyone to leave with a solid kip foundation as well as an understand of where they currently are in the kip progression. At the end of the clinic, everyone will go home with a kip progression to continue working on their skill. Every variation of the "kip" is based on one swing. Everyone will leave with a handle on the basic kip, and how to adjust their kip based on the movement at hand. Example: How the toes to bar kip differs from a knees to elbow or pull up kip.
