Laura and Gretchen racing through toes-to-bars.


Notice both athletes are in a slightly closed shoulder angle. If they were passively hanging from the bar their shoulders would be directly under the bar, but they’re engaged through their shoulders which places the shoulder slightly behind the bar, as in a kip. Lack of engagement through the shoulders is one of the largest faults for not being able to link multiple reps, so check it out on yourself and see if you can get more!
