    I am trying to get my baby giant, like the one in the level 5 bar routine. I am very close, but i keep making the motion of a kip ( bringing my toes/knees to the bar instead of my hips). Any tips on how i can fix this?

    Do you have a strap bar? If so, strap in and if you have a bar pad pull that on too. This is what we do at my gym to train actual Giants: you start with tap swings on the strap bar and while tap swinging think about shooting your legs over and landing with your hips on the bar. This is not a kip. Try to miss the bar- you might not- but that's ok. And just keep trying over and over. Also, practice candlesticks on the floor because this is the shape you want to go over in.
