As part of the adaptation to CrossFit I have found there is an inverse relationship to the number of pull-ups you can do and the amount of skin on your hands. This relationship is unpleasant reward for learning the â€œkippingâ€ pull-up particularly when ballistic horizontal energy is transferred into sufficient vertical energy to get your chin over the bar. Some would say you need not explore skin loss if you stick with the strict pull-up however not many people can accomplish greater than 15 strict pull-ups without significant training. In fact I have noticed that most who have mastered the kipping pull-up actually lose their ability to perform strict pull-ups over time due to the difference in muscle recruitment patterns.
