Early training drills on the high bar

Chuck and I have found a neighborhood park that has a high bar high enough for us to do some pop-up drills.  The first time we went, it felt like our arms were coming out of our sockets.  The goal is to bring up the right knee (we’re right handers) and swing the straight left leg through and try to get to a vertical position.  I didn’t want to tell you how bad we were, but here goes.  We couldn’t even keep the left leg straight on a simple swing.  I’m starting to get my foot near the high bar, but certainly not any semblance of a full pike or even a start at going vertical.  Chuck is starting to be able to keep his left leg straighter, so we are making progress, but a lot slower than we anticipated.
