Amplitude (the maximum extent of a vibration or oscillation, measured from the position of equilibrium) in the kip can determine the power of the movement for a toes-to-bar, pullup, or muscle-up.

The position of equilibrium would be the upright. Notice how far the chest moves forward while maintaining a global arch? Shapes like the one above are what we should be shooting for in training. Simply arching the lower back and pulling the heels up as high as possible get the job done, but don’t last in the long run.

IN-GYM WORKOUT for Monday 5/3/2021

Warmup

three tabata efforts (:20 of work, :10 of rest, repeated for 8 rounds) for three different exercises, resting no more than a minute between each effort.

every minute on the minute for 7 minutes: deadlift + clean + jerk.

One of the exercises need to be doubled up: can do 2 deadlifts + clean + jerk, or deadlift + 2 cleans + jerk, or deadlift + clean + 2 jerks. You should choose the version of the complex that allows you to sharpen your technique where it’s needed, or choose the lifts you have most fun with.

35 (unbroken) double unders
7 back squats, 40/65/90kg
