Chest-To-Bar Pull-Ups (C2B)

G
Level: Average

Chest-To-Bar Pull-Up is one of the basic movements in Crossfit trainings. The main difference from regular pull-ups is touching a bar with your chest, using kipping.

This is a standard chest-to-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom, with the feet off the ground.

At the top, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar below the collarbone. Athletes may wrap tape around the pull-up bar OR wear hand protection (gymnastics-style, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar AND wear hand protection.
