The jump pull-up allows you to activate your body on a flow mode, by contracting all muscles in a sequence, from trunk and core to glutes and legs.
In this exercise you can associate torso strength, scapular stabilisation, to trunk power strength on different vertical levels. This total combination creates a great functional movement that focuses on lifting the centre of the body mass while concentrating on grip strength.
It involves movements such as climbing, jumping, pulling and descending in a controlled fashion. We can use this movement pattern for instance for rock climbing or basketball playing.
When jumping, grabbing and pulling, you generate a vertical displacement that involves a triple extension mechanism that includes ankle, knee and hip. Combined with pulling movement, we can activate abs, connecting to latissimus dorsi and arms, creating an efficient body movement with load shared by the whole body structure and joints.
