There’s something really satisfying about pulling your whole body away from the floor…

Here are the main roadblocks robbing people from this feeling:

  1. Upper Body Strength It's the big boss blocking your path.

  2. Grip Strength: If your grip is weak, it's game over.

  3. Technique: It ain’t just heaving yourself up; technique is king.

  4. Consistency: Like any epic skill, without practice, you're stuck.
