Muscle Up Advice

We've received many emails that go something like this, "I think I'm strong enough to do muscle ups but I'm missing the technique!" Muscle ups can be achieved through momentum but immediately work towards cleaning up the form! The best thing for this type of strong individual, is full on explosive pull-ups. Forget about the chin. If you can pull yourself up to your chest or better yet the stomach, then technique/transition will not be an issue and you will make easy work out of muscle ups.

If you can already do muscle ups and are trying to correct your form, Hold a brick between your feet. The extra weight will keep your legs down and if you kick too much you'll drop the brick.

Just keep on pullin...

  1. good advice Rick...I think we should also do a post about the slow muscle-up soon with an accompanying tutorial video. A lot of people would be curious about how to do it.
