How to do a muscle up

Post by fullerene on Mon Aug 13, 2012 8:59 am

Obvously very few people have the explosiveness to do this complex movement, but I am training to become one of them. If others on here are trying as well, we can use this thread to promote tips and tricks as well as to provide encouragment and support!

FYI, both BJ Penn and GSP use this exercise to build their core strength.

He's an expert and he doesn't post here. You should make a video of yourself trying to do one.

Almost there. I just need to add some captions so you can see the steps I take to achieve the final result.

It's pretty "raw" but that gives you a more realistic view of what it takes to do this move. There is no point in recording again and again just so you can show a perfect muscle up like you got it the first time.

hard to imagine that a made up movement that requires equipment not found in most gyms or parks has become a new workout fad.

That video was terrible. The idea of a progression training program is to use less and less equipment and assistance to do the motion. Using gloves, hand wraps and a flex band to do a weak muscle up on a four foot bar is pathetic. I suggest that you do pull ups for now and skip advanced movements like muscle ups altogether. If I was more appreciated here I would be providing pull up assistance--after all I can do eight in a row with strict form.

I've never done one but I'm sure I could. My exercise programs and scientific dieting habits speak for themselves.
