Heel Clap

Heel Clap –

Position yourself underneath the pull-up bar as if you were doing a regular pull-up. Do a left or right facing movement so the pull-up bar is now perpendicular to your body. Grasp the bar with palms facing each other, no more than 5” apart, arms fully extended and body hanging without touching the ground.

Pull up with the arms and torso, raising the feet and legs, one leg on either side of the bar, until the heels touch above the bar, with the bar between the legs. Then lower the legs until the arms and legs are fully extend in the starting position. This is one rep.

The Heel Clap is one of the exercises for the Ranger RAW Fitness Assessment, and the same exercise as the Kipp Up.
