Cindy w/ Weight Vest

I got a weight vest for Christmas this year and used it for Cindy today. I was surprised/disappointed by how far my score dropped by adding the extra 20 pounds. I went from an "unweighted" 20...

Nice work Neal! I had the same issue when I switched from my home-made rings to the Elite rings. I 'solved' it by wrapping the rings with tennis racket grip which allowed me to maintain my false...

I'm building my home gym on a budget which means two things:
1. I need to save money wherever I can
2. I can't afford to make mistakes buying junk

Kawika,

I think you've gotten great advice so far. I've done a fair amount of campusing (almost exclusively on pretty big holds) and have gotten good results with it. It's a great way to build...

Jerry, Christian,

Thanks for the tips. As of now, I do better when I lower myself slowly--when I tried speed MU's, I sped right to the ground. As an aside, I searched "multiple muscle up"...

I've set a goal for 10 consecutive MU's by the end of the year. My current best effort is 3. My biggest struggle is lowering myself from the "lower dip" to the "upper pull up" positions. This...

After trying a few more MU's, I realized that a large part of my problem was that my home-made rings were too slick. I would start with a decent false grip and my hands would slip ever so slightly...
