A Quick Note On Chest To Bar
Chest to bar pullups are a regular pullup with more of a pull. The chest, specifically the clavicle line or lower, must physically touch the bar to perform the movement as prescribed. It is similar to the regular kip just with a harder turnover of the hips and a stronger pull.

I say this in every class with CTB pullups: the only way to get better at CTB pullups is to do CTB pullups. They are harder and burnout faster than regular pullups. But the only way to get the strength for that extra pull is to do the full movement. I know it is tempting to switch to regular pullups mid workout because you are just dying trying to get your chest up there. However, as coaches we would rather see you stick with doing the chest to bar pullups and scale the reps per round than scale the movement itself. Ask one of us what a good amount of reps is for a certain workout if you know doing the written number of chest to bar isn’t manageable for you.

Front Squat

20 Squat Cleans (135/95)
30 Burpee Lateral Jumps
40 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
30 Burpee Lateral Jumps
20 Squat Cleans

L3 – (115/80)
L2 – (95/65)
L1 – (65/35)

*Coaches tip* – pick a weight where you can get the first set of squat cleans in no more than 2 sets. Keep your eyes focused on a point straight ahead to maintain efficiency and a consistent bar path on touch and go reps.
