I just came back from a very exciting two day trip to crossfit headquarters in Santa Cruz California. Russell Berger from Crossfit Inc. sent me an email asking if I’d like to be part of a roundtable discussion on kipping pullups. It’s part of a crossfit segment entitled “offline” where several topics related and unrelated to crossfit are discussed.
My response… Hell yes! A week later crossfit treated me to a trip out to sunny california for a bit of fun and discussion. The panel that came out to speak was filled with studs:
- David Durante – Formerly a member of team USA gymnastics
- Carl Paoli – One of my favorite sources for gymnastics coaching, also an excellent former gymnast
- Jacob Tsypski – Owner of Crossfit Monterey. Contributor to Juggernaut Training Systems
- Special guest: Dan Bailey
Over the two days we had some great conversation and fun. Overall I was very pleased and am excited to have hopefully sparked some interest in this controversial exercise. I had a chance to meet several members of crossfit who I’ve seen only online and I was a bit star struck.
Well, I’m tired and ready for bed. I just wanted to post something for the week and fill you in on why I didn’t have any new material. I’ll post the video once it’s up! Thanks for everyone for the support over the years.
