Muscle ups
« on: June 22, 2008, 02:01:06 PM »
Do your muscle ups on a bar as this is most applicable to say a wall outside of the gym (well, aside from the fact that you can use your legs outside).

Muscle ups are from hang with STRAIGHT arms all the way to support position over the bar with STRAIGHT arms. Sets must be in a single attempt so no excessive resting (5-10s+ resting either at the top or bottom) between each repetition. Deadhang muscle ups may be performed with a L-sit or no L-sit depending on preference although L-sit is assumed to be the easier variation because of counterbalance.

Since deadhang muscle ups and kipping muscle ups are different indicators, you may put both down in this format:

Name - date - Kipping ## | date - Deadhang ##

If you have not tested one type or cannot do any of one type (especially deadhangs for a lot of you) indicate that with an "NA" instead of a number. If using "NA" date it as current if it is as such.

For example:
Mark Toorock - 07-08-07 - Kipping 90 | 05-20-08 - Deadhang 35
Jesse Woody - 02-22-08 - Kipping 42 | 06-22-08 - Deadhang NA

Any type of bar may be used.

Derik DaSilva - 07-24-08 - Kipping Pull NA l 07-24-08 Deadhang Pull NA

I've got a long way to go, I just wanted to record an official 'starting line'. Also, I say kipping pull and deadhang pull because I'm obviously starting out with pull-ups before I can do a muscle-up. I obviously can't do a kipping pull-up or a deadhang pull-up, so muscle-ups are way into the future for me. I just figured if I had it written down in a public forum, I'd have to practice more in order to keep my rep. :P

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.

I like to touch different kinds of surface textures.
Parkour lets me do that without feeling weird.

Hey, all

I don't know if you want to hear it or not, or if this is the place to do it, but I've had the goal of doing a muscle-up for ages, and only now am doing something about it. I'm going for 1500 deadhang pull-ups this month, and am on 1150. I have no idea how much closer this will bring me to doing the muscle-up, but I'm going to be trying for them once the month is over
