So the challenge for the months I am away is this... to train for a one arm muscle up. I figure this will be a one arm chin, a one arm dip, a bit of speed, and a stupid amount of hard work *grin*.

Any thoughts? Has anyone tried/ pulled this off? Any deriding mocking comments to strengthen my resolve *grin*?

there's no advice I can give to someone who grins about a one arm chin up and a one arm dip

One heck of a kip. I know this can be done dynamically (on a bar of course, no chance on a single ring) but catching a solid support at the top will be tough.

The way I see it, if I do this on a bar than I can try and make the movement more dynamic, and try and explode up, but... the rolling motion to transition into the dip could be nasty on a bar. On a ring you are allowed far more freedom of movement, and if the legs are involved in the roll I wonder if it might be easier.
I think that training one arms with a false grip is going to be first on the list though *grin*.

The trouble with a ring is there is no way to keep your center of gravity above the support point. The cable will prevent you from ever obtaining a support.

Fair point. You could lean into the cables once you are up, but I see where this plan may be flawed *grin*... I guess I will have to aim for it on the bar, which means a kip to try and get up on top.

Of course I don't use a false grip when I muscle up on a bar, but I feel that I would have to for a one arm muscle up.
