Andy, my PR is 3:42 for 30 MU, and I am shooting for a sub-3 min performance on 12/31.

It kind of sucks though, all my other strength work has been pushed aside to focus soley on muscle ups right now. It will be a relief when I am done.

Brad beat me on that CF challenge with 17. I think that is right...either he had 17 and I had 15 or He had 15 and I had 14...the trauma of loosing has blocked those painful details...

Is it assumed that muscle ups are done on the bar or rings?
I don't have access to rings and only have done them on a bar, which is harder?

James-

I did them on rings and find them much easier than the bar version. I have heard some people say the opposite...maybe Roger has soem perspective on this?

A muscle up on rings is far easier to learn and less technical. However, once you really get a "bar muscle up" quick and powerful it becomes a kip to support from a dead hang. If you get the technique on this refined you can do far more reps on a bar than on rings.

On the contrary to Roger's post, while I do agree with him when using a kip, if you're going for "dead rep" Muscle-ups without using a kip and only your arms instead (emphasizing a focus on upper body strength over power output), using the bar is much more difficult than using the rings.

At least, that's my experience with this skill. Anyone have a different one?

I concur with Eric. If kipping is not used, the bar is tougher. When doing max reps we're generally talking about allowing for dynamic movements here.
