Gymnastics coach Jeff Tucker and assistant Jason Malutich take us through the intricacies of the L-pull-up and progressions for developing the strength and skill to execute it. They go over partials, assisted moves, spotting, negatives, and other incremental steps. They also scale it the other direction, showing progressively more difficult variations such as V-ups and weighted versions, for those who have already mastered the basic L.
