Read this article and find out a little more about why we are so adamant about dead hang pull-ups. The kipping pull-up is fun but unless you have enough strength in your shoulders to do a dead hang pull-up you could be setting yourself up for injury in the future. Kipping pull-ups have their place, but if you’re new or you can’t do an unassisted dead hang pull-up then you should be hesitant to do unassisted kipping pull-ups in a workout.
