How to Tackle Muscle-Up Progressions


We’ve been throwing muscle-up progressions at many of you as skill work about once a week, and will continue to do so.

So what to do for the progression?  You can do exactly what Carl lays out above:  one ring pull-up to chin, one to chest, and one to hip.  If you can’t get the rings to your hip, get as close as you can.  Once you can get to the hip, you have the necessary strength to get a muscle-up, for sure (then we just need to work on timing the transition).

And congratulations to the following people who’ve gotten their first muscle-ups in the past week:
