In this series, Carl will break down the progression for the Glide Kip with our special guest James. In this first video, James demonstrates the movement while Carl breaks down the individual components, starting with the initial swing.
In this video, Carl and James move on to the next part of the Glide Kip – transitioning from a hip extension in the glide swing to a Toes to Bar with short swings under the bar.
In this video, Carl and James continues with the next transition of the Glide Kip, bringing the body back into full hip extension from the toes to bar, by hanging while pulling the bar up back the legs to the hips.
In this video, Carl and James demonstrates the last component and drills the positions and movements to help you get over the bar into support.
In this video, Carl and James practice some drill to improve your technique for the Glide Kip with no load. This will help you practice your positions, coordination, and exaggerated movements so you’ll be ready for the real thing.

Laurie Galassi, a gymnast and the fifth-place finisher at the 2011 NorCal Regional, shares her coaching tips for mastering the pull-up. In Part 1 of the series, she focuses on body shape.
A fast, efficient pull-up has three key ingredients, she says: the hollow-body position, the appropriate grip on the bar and the right timing.
Laurie Galassi, a gymnast and the fifth-place finisher at the 2011 NorCal Regional, shares her coaching tips for mastering the pull-up. In Part 2 of the series, she focuses on timing—the moment of weightlessness, to be specific.
“When I snap from arch to hollow, in the back of my swing I find this little weightless moment only if I come to an aggressive stop,” Galassi says. “If your rhythm is correct and if you’re tight, there is a moment.”
The feet should be in front, and you become weightless. From there, you can jump your hands off the bar.
“That’s the moment when you’re the lightest” and when you want to pull, she explains.
Galassi also advises to have as much of your knuckle on top of the bar to shorten the distance you have to pull.
To cycle through multiple pull-ups, remember: chin over, feet forward, reset, arch back, pull again, she says.
In terms of the butterfly pull-up, Galassi says the positions are no different than a kipping pull-up.
“It’s still an arch, hollow—that’s the foundation of your pull-up. And midline stability,” she says.
