Hi,

1) What is a "false grip"??

2) Is there some way I can do a MU without rings. I'm not talking about pullup/dip substitution, but a real MU. Can it be done from a chin bar or some other piece of gym equipment?

Thanks,

-N

1) Look here: http://www.powerathletesmag.com/pages/muscleup.htm

2) HA HA! Now I can plug my patented 'Judo Belt Muscle Up'. I use judo belts looped over a doorway chinup bar, tied into a tight knot at a desired height. Take the part of the belt that goes through the knot and loop it back over the knot so that it won't slip when weight is put on. If the height is quite low, like mine then you have to start in an L-sit. Just pull really hard and you should make the transition.

I can't quite visualize what your saying Graham. Anyway, I have heard of guys using chin bars. It is harder cause the rings will turn with you as you move from pull up to dip position but it can be done. On the other hand, saving up for a set of Tyler's rings is worthwhile. It was the first piece of equipment I bought after my weight set and I haven't regretted it ever. They can be taken to a park and hung over some bars to get the right height if you don't have a place inside the house.
