Most Common Kipping Chest-to-Bar Pull-Up Mistakes

Hands too close

Having a wider grip on the pull-up bar can sometimes help retract the shoulders more and stick out the chest, so you can get a clean chest-to-bar rep.

Chest stays closed

Another chest-to-bar pull-up mistake is not opening the chest. You’ll have to overextend your upper thoracic spine in order to tap the bar with the chest.

Eyes down

Look up and keep your head high, as looking down will drop your chest, making every rep harder. It’s easier to flare out the chest if you’re looking up.

Lack of strength

If you find you need to pull yourself to the bar you need to work on your strength to effectively perform reps of chest-to-bar pull-ups.
