I'm always seeing posts of peoples goals and competitions regarding the number of muscle ups, pull ups, dips, ect. but hardly ever do you see goals for max weight on these exercises. So I was thinking of setting a goal/competition, if anyone else is interested, to do a muscle up with 1.5 X bw (for me at a bw of 155 that would mean adding an additional 77.5# to my bw) And maybe secondary goals of bw X 2 for pull ups and ring dips. At the moment my maxes are only 1.19 X bw (+30#) for muscle ups, 1.65 X bw (+100#) for pull ups, and 1.52 X bw (+80#) for ring dips. It would be great to see what other people are at.

I'm 180 pounds.

I'm at about 1.42 X bodyweight for the pullups with 75# on the last WOD that called for singles of weighted pullups.

Dips are at about 1.28 X bodyweight with 50# dip on rings.

I can only do 3 consecutive muscle ups right now, and haven't even contemplated adding weight yet. Once I can do 5-10 in a row I'll add some weight and see what I can do.

I think there should be a standard starting point for weighted MUs. Maybe have to start from suppoert over the rings and lower into the hang position and pull back to support. This keeps any small "jump" at the bottom from helping out.

I'm 180, but I don't have my rings yet (hurry up tyler!) ... so far I have:

BW+135x1 on chinups
BW+180x3 on bar dips
BWx1 on an extremely ugly bar muscleup.

The most I have tried so far is 1.14xbw on muscleups, and they are mad harder by the fact that I have to start them in an l-sit.

ah... I believe I misunderstood something. Are regular pullups considered 1xBW? In which case, I'd be at 1.42xBW.

Austin, you got it right this time. So for say a 200# person 1.5 X bw would be 300# total or bw plus 100#. I could tell when I first posted this that the weights could be confusing but I wasn't sure how to make it clearer. I also wanted to compare the weights to BW instead of just just weight added on. Hope everyone understands now.

To get weighted MU with any significant addition you have to get extremely powerful through the transition. You will never muscle that through. Strong pull and hop over your shoulders.

Roger, are talking about needing a kip? If so, then you don't think I would be able to do much since I have to start mine in an l-sit?

Yeah. I'm in the same fix as Anthony with the rings. I can wait though. Patience is a virtue and it is Lent, so no problem. Other than that I've never maxed on dips, that's something to try. My bwt. is about 155 and I did a pull-up + 90lbs. A couple of weeks ago.
