Jump to pull-up

The jump to pull-up is a bodyweight exercise that targets the muscles of the back, biceps, and, to a lesser degree, legs. It involves jumping up to a pull-up bar between reps. Similar to a push-press, the legs help power through the most difficult portion of the pull-up, allowing you to perform more reps. Jumping pull-ups are often performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as an accessory to other pulling or pull-up training, or as a full-body movement in a circuit or metcon.
