How we grip the pull-up bar is not of large importance. Reaching full lockout at the bottom and clearing the bar with your chin at the top is our standard. The bear grip, the monkey grip, the split grip, are all acceptable. Is there a preferred CrossFit grip? NO! If there is a grip you are comfortable with, switch grips and use a different one.
Can you switch grips in the middle of a workout? Next time "Helen" is the WOD, use each round to try a different grip. Make it not matter, just grip it and rip it.
How do you grip it?
