Happy happy day!!

Had some play time down at the park and I GOT MY MUSCLE-UP BACK!! Haven't come even close to one since I got my first at the May certification - tried a few times but miles away. Just had a go after a class, pulled hard and found myself at the transition!!

I wasn't happy with just one this time, I wanted to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Got four out of 6 attempts. All dead hang, no kip (I can't) to full extension. They got slower and the last one I thought I could have read a book through the transition but they were all full range.

Just had to tell some folks - I am buzzing

Cheers, kempie

ps If Coach or Lauren read this, could you please add my name to the muscle-up club? I feel like I belong now.

Till then mate focus on really full range pull-ups. Try and pull to mid-chest if poss - also if you can get a couple of judo belts or similar, loop them over your pull-up bar and practice ring dips, you will be well on your way.

Cheers, kempie

Judo belts are just the quickest simplest ring dip sub I have heard of. I could imagine though that they are not incredibly comfortable.

The sub I used before I got my rings (and afterwards when I didn't feel like carrying them around) is similar to the first pix in this thread:

The thread gets more advanced but the simple ones did the job for me.

Cheers, kempie
