    Kip-up Tutorial

    Primal Fuel
    This might be a bit esoteric, but if anyone is interested in learning the kip-up, I posted a tutorial about it on my blog here:
    kip-up tutorial

    Even if you don't care to learn the exercise, you might still enjoy watching the video.

    And just to make this thread Primal Blueprint specific...

    DO U THINK GROK WOULD'VE DONE KIP-UPS?!?

    Definitely practice in secret. You'll surprise her one day by just busting it out unexpectedly.

    Jeeze you make that look easy, do you think you could add a 90 degree turn, coz that would be the coolest way to pop up while surfing

    Haha....I'm a fan of stupid human tricks. Taught myself this years ago. If you get outa practice it can take a few trys to get back in the grove. BTW if you can do this you can automatically do a front hand spring....maybe not Olympic grade, but you can land on your feet

    I don't know what the title was, but I saw a YouTube video a while back of a kid who could do a kip-up so well that he landed standing...legs straight (soft knees, of course) instead of in a pseudo-squat.

    You've clearly never seen a Sammo Hung movie!
    At least 2 kip-ups (0:45, 1:08) in this compilation video, plus numerous other athletic moves including a back flip and no-hand cartwheel:

    A Tribute To Sammo Hung - YouTube

    (ETA: a sprung wrestling ring would make this extremely easy - a gym/dance studio with a sprung floor or even a very big bed are great places to practice the technique )
