The butterfly pull-up was designed as a way to execute the “Kipping Pull-up” at a faster turnover rate. This is used almost exclusivity in the functional fitness community as a way to get more work done in less time.

Please note: the butterfly pull-up puts more torque on your shoulder girdle than a strict or kipping pull-up. This skill should not be learned before the user has a solid strict strength foundation and a deep understanding of the kipping pull-up.
