Kipping is a way of getting more power out of your entire body while performing ninja moves. You use your knees, hips, and arms to throw your body up explosively, this will increase your overall power output and efficiency on ninja obstacles!

Here are some tips on kipping, when to use it, and how to properly use it
To begin the process of learning a kip, you’ll have to hang from a bar. Let your body fully dangle! Once you’re ready, drive your knees straight up, while simultaneously pulling down on the bar, in order to project your body upward!
Once you’ve successfully performed this movement, your body will rise up a few inches & you will essentially be floating or weightless for a moment! Once you feel that, you’re able to make your move! Whether it’s a muscle up, salmon ladder move, dyno, or just a kipping pull up, your technique is very similar.
