Bar Taps


This is the foundation for many of our CrossFit gymnastic movements:  pullups, toes to bar, knees to elbows, and bar muscle-ups.  Click HERE for a demo with explanation.


Safety Tip:  If you do not have a quality overhead position, be careful performing high volume reps of this movement or any of the above related movements.  An easy test is to perform Wall Extensions:  if you struggle to keep your hands in contact with the wall, you are a prime candidate for scaling these movements.  Click on any of the above movements to read more about how to scale appropriately.
