Forget weighted pull-ups! Outpost CrossFit introduced the Pull Under at this years Labor Day Weekend Throwdown. The Pull Under is much more challenging than any pull-up variant out there.  The Pull-under is all about creating vertical thrust with the upper body while trying desperately to keep from sliding on the sagittal or frontal plane without kipping or a band.

Thank you to all the athletes and CrossFit community for celebrating the three day weekend by supporting and “doing work” at the Labor Day Weekend Throwdown! Among the affiliates represented were CrossFit Shoreside, CrossFit Fire, CrossFit Carbon, CrossFit Warrenville and many other lone wolves, gyms and powerlifters. Also a tall thank you to Gear212. See you next year for the 2nd Annual Labor Day Weekend Throwdown! Until then, practice your Pull-Unders everyone! Courtesy of yours truly, Outpost CrossFit.  You’re welcome!
