A Tip for Today
The point of the new gymnastics cycle is to teach proper positions and positional strength.  The idea of this is NOT to go through it as fast as possible.  For the pull ups today, you will have a spotter and you will check hollow positioning and lat activation on every rep before the pull up begins.  This should be a bit time consuming now but in the later weeks, it will become second nature.
