You don't have to read into that fact that anyone thinks this was not impressive or to be heralded and respected.

Now the folks talking about no repping his DL or Cleans...different story, and there's room for argument there.

Food for thought though, if he was using LESS weight than Josh Everett used, and was not an ex-olympic athlete, would you care more??
It has nothing to do with the weight he was using. I was comparing his form to many crossfit vids that are said to be acceptable. These includes vids of snatches and jerks that are pressed out, etc. If you are going to allow 20 percent slop, that is what you have to accept in return.

It is not as if the little bit of effort it would have taken him to finish every rep would have added significantly to his time.

I think you missed my point a little...basically I'm saying who cares?

It wasn't a muscle up, that should really be the end of this thread...

Re: Is this a muscle up?

Hey Ashion.

What does the swing or rolls to support are not permitted part of this description mean that was given as a standard for the Games

Muscle-up
In the muscle-up you must pass from a hang below the rings to support above them. A kipping muscle-up is ok, swings or rolls to support are not permitted. The hands must roll out while at a full hang (with or without a “false grip”). The elbows must fully lock out while supporting yourself above the rings.

Re: Is this a muscle up?

In one of the journal videos coach glassman teaches someone to do them that way. I can dig up which one it was if anyone cares. He should get straight arms at the bottom thought.

But he can move really well, I'd be happy if I could do that.

Swings are not permitted? Did you see the muscle ups of all the competitors?

Yeah that standard was not upheld, agree with Steven, I definitely saw some swings....

I didn't see these rules but I wasn't competing, so I didn't really care to look for them.

This guy is doing Ring Swings

Here is a Backward Roll to Support

Here is a Forward Roll to Support Remember your WFS designations. You're usually good about this, so I won't delete them.
