Iíll never do those kipping pull-ups though haha.

A good coach will be unwavering in form. Youíll hate them for it though lol.
The stigma against kipping is strong, but with balance they arenít that bad. As long as strict doesnít get ignored.

Iíd imagine Iím terrible at kipping pull-ups, since I always do strict weighted pull-ups with a fairly wide thumbless grip pulling apart on the bar to focus on lats and minimize bicep involvement. Definitely not ideal for maximum speed or momentum haha.

And to be honest, I wish Crossfit spent more time doing pure strength. But thereís only so many hours in the day so it gets sacrifice more often than not.
It is, I know 🤦🏻*♂️ Trust me, Iíve been doing it for almost 10 years and thereís a lot of good and a lot of bad.

For me, it worked out in my favor. Injuries and major work hours forced me to freeze my gym membership last September. By January, I was feeling better and work slowed down. I started back in the gym and feel awesome!
Sometimes, we just need a break. Mentally and physically.

You do it because itís just who you are. Because subconsciously you desire a goal so seriously that you overlook all of the struggle and current discomfort, your own frequent disinterest even, for a goal that ultimately doesnít mean anything to anyone other than you. Training is almost like practicing art, in that sense. Matt Vincent called it ďThe HateĒ. Where your hatred of your current self, your own self loathing & desire for change, is greater than your desire to stay the same. So you train.
In a word, you must be driven.
