Sorry for dropping the ball on the L10XF”s athlete of the week. Guess I could blame it on all the qualified people who have been making huge strides as of late-which is true. However, the real reason is I am a scum bucket who is off to do burpee pull-ups till I pass out! In the mean time read about Alaine who has been kicking some serious fanny since joining up at Level 10 Crossfit.
Alaine was one of our first clients way back in June. She originally came with a healthy dose of fear and apprehension due to a neck injury that required spinal fusing, as well as some lingering nerve damage to her right arm. Yet by scaling the intensity and substituting different exercises when needed, Alaine has consistently made progress and ultimately achieved far more than what she once thought possible. Great job, Alaine!!!
Probably the hardest parts about learning to cycle high reps of kipping pull-ups, especially if you lack the strength to do strict pull-ups, is the ability to “push off” the bar at the apex of your pull-up. So click (here) if you want to learn how to add some push to your pull-ups and hopefully add some reps onto that max pull-up of yours.
Six years ago I thought (this) guy was going to be the next big thing. Turns out I was right!
