Coaching Tips: Set yourself up for the jumping pull ups by stacking plates underneath a bar and be careful during the workout that you don’t roll an ankle. You should have 4 – 8 Inches (1 to 2 fists) in between your head and the bar. Your arms must reach full lockout each time so you will be partially squatting down with bent knees. Make sure you use your legs (Jump) more than your arms.
