We reported on Melissa’s victory at CrossFit Gantry on Saturday, competing at the October Iron Fest. The Iron Fest was also being done at 7 other gyms across North America. What we didn’t find out until yesterday morning is that Melissa won the Open Female division for all 8 gyms, not just the one in New York! YEAH MELISSA!
STRENGTHEN YOUR STRICT PULL-UP Christian Thibaudeau, the best contributor at T-Nation.com, has penned the best article on pull-ups we have had the pleasure to read. And we have read many. First and foremost Thibaudeau recommends something we train as a matter of course: GET STRICT PULL-UPS BEFORE YOU TRY KIPPING. If you don’t have the strength to perform strict pull-ups you have no business doing kipping pull-ups.
If you have pull-ups please read this article. If you have yet to perform a strict pull-up please read this article 2-3 times. We are currently doing some of the exercises Thibaudeau recommends, but there are two we have not seen before. We’ll be stealing these.—George
