In case you haven’t noticed, it’s a new year. Some folks like a good New Years goal. I love a pull up – if you don’t have one, maybe now is the time. If you write it on the board and take a selfie, you got yourself a square on the bingo card.
We do a lot of handstand work, and we added a lot of rope climbs last year. This year, I want to make the muscle up a priority. Much like a couple years ago, we will mix them in with some burpees and rowing. We can break them down: you can do transitions, you can do jumping muscle ups, and you can do muscle ups.
This week, I would like to focus on the ring MU, so work transitions, jumping or full MU, 3 per round.
In the video below, this is exactly the movement I recommend. Don’t worry too much about the dip, but be concerned with keeping the rings close and getting into that catch.
