Here are some great tips from CrossFit gymnastics on getting better at all kinds of pull up variations. Remember, there are progressions for every movement and trying to skip ahead just makes everything take that much longer to master. Work on pulling strength, develop a solid kip, transfer that kip into a pull up, progress that into a kipping chest-to-bar pull up, then work on the butterfly kip.

That list is a simplified progression of movements and there may be more work you need to put in elsewhere, but it’s still important to stick with the right progression for you and not try to skip steps.

Check out the following videos and figure out where you are in the pull up progressions and hopefully some of these tips will help. Remember, there’s no substitute for being strong enough to pull yourself over the bar!
