I could swear, in past workouts, the sub for 30 muscle ups was 60 pulls up and dips. Is there any reason it is now up to 120 each? Not really sure if I can do muscle ups or not - don't have access to rings. Anyway, just curious as to the 100% increase in volume.

Probably because it will hurt more! Just a guess.

Rings for muscleups, while preferable for comfort, are not necessary. It is also possible to perform muscle ups on a straight bar. For this you will need to use an exaggerated false grip.

At first, you will probably not be able to completely straighten your arms at the bottom of the movement and retain your false grip. This is fine, simply continue with the movement and, as you strength and flexibility improves, so will your bottom hang position.

The transition from the pullup to the dip is also harder as you are not able to lean forward, but this is actually preferable, as a perfect muscleup doesn't lean forward anyway.

In the event of getting "rips" or blisters on your wrists from the false grip, a little athletic tape will take care of the problem.

For additional information regarding muscleups, please see my post under "weighted muscleups".

Yours in Fitness,
Coach Sommer
