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.
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).
