Sounds like you are on the right track, wish there was more advice I could give you. Make sure that you are iniating the swing through your shoulders and core and not your hips. If practice just the swing alone you gradually get strong enough to be almost at bar height when you are in the back half of it then its a matter of finishing the pull and the push. Keep up the work and if you are already getting strict pull ups then once it clicks (and it will) you will have 5 at time kipping fairly easy!

Well, I seem to be making some progress, but it's still a bit spaz... I actually hit my chin on the bar (step 4 push away and drop back into the head forward/feet back position). I'm a work in progress LOL
Fall down six times- get up seven :-)

I did watch them awhile ago. I'll have to go back and see them again. I seem to be having trouble co-ordinating the sequence; the last hip spring with the pull is eluding me. I am also swinging back and forth too much. I am feeling a little frustrated because I *should* be able to do this. I can actually do full pull ups *arggghhhh* but I'm just generally weaker. (I'm recovering from a broken ankle and toes... 3 months off- you lose muscle so quickly.) I am having another go tomorrow morning before the WOD. I'll let you know how I'm doing.
