BAR Muscle-ups Equivalent to RING Muscle-ups?

I don't have access to rings for today's 30 MU WOD, but I can do about six BAR MUs consecutively and most likely 30 in under ten minutes. So are BAR muscle-ups equivalent to RING muscle-ups on a 1:1 basis?

I presume that the BAR MUs do not work your stabilizers and technique like the RING version, so maybe a 1.5x or 2x multiplier?

Anyone else in the same boat? Thanks.

Greg, the workout is 30 muscle-ups. Whilst most will use rings, I have seen others use bar muscle ups or even wall muscle-ups and they have never upscaled the reps. Feel free to make it harder if you need to but it's really not necessary.

Cheers, kempie

Kempie,
What the heck are wall muscle-ups?

Considering I can do ring muscle-ups and I can't do bar muscle-ups, I'd definitely be inclined to say they are at least a 1:1 sub...

Muscle-ups using the top of a wall. Pretty sure Pierre posted a vid demoing these. Maybe as part of that burpee/ inverted burpee WOD

Doh! That makes perfect sense.

Watch out for the kipping on those, eh?

Hang from the wall from your fingers ( ideally between palm and beginning of digit ). Drag yourself up and push without using your legs. Fun stuff.

I think it's rather a matter of technique. One of my friends could do 10 consecutive bar muscle-ups before he could do even one ring muscle-up.

With good technique bar muscleups are easier than rings. Kipping, of course.

Haha! Bar muscle-ups. Those would be rather painful for me.
