Set Your Hands Right

CFSC_NicoleJumpTouchNicole in pink, Megan in green

If you set your hands directly under the bar each time you do a burpee jump touch, you will likely end up in the position Nicole is in. The bar is slightly in front of her, allowing her midline to stay tight as she jumps and reaches forward to touch without looking. She can even tap the bar on her way back down from her jump headed to the floor for her next repatition. If you  hands are too far in front of the pull-up bar, then you may end up like Megan. She is just a hair in front, having to reach back and look for the bar, which forces her to break the midline and crane her neck.
