Because you’re reading this blog, I’m making the bold assumption that you are a CrossFit enthusiast, or at least have a partial appreciation for what CrossFit is (whether you love it or hate it) and its many layers of modern fitness. If you’re at all like me, you’re also probably used to its criticism and the bottomless finger-pointing made by those who refuse to set foot in a box.
[I]f you use butterfly pull-ups as an argument as to why you don’t like CrossFit…you may be a bit misled as to their function and purpose.
Usually, depending on the source of this criticism, it’s best to just roll your eyes and move along. But, as a level-headed pursuer of all things fitness and the forward progression of unfiltered, unbiased exercise science for the every-man, I take all legitimate arguments under consideration and develop conclusions based upon my own accumulation of information.
One of the most common hates put on CrossFit that I think can be easily rebutted: butterfly pull-ups. This write-up is intended to address this issue and this issue alone.
Here’s the deal: if you use butterfly pull-ups as an argument as to why you don’t like CrossFit, I strongly suggest you reconsider; you may be a bit misled as to their function and purpose (or you’re an ignorant hater. In any case, read on, and acquire some knowledge).
