Good questions asked on the daily msg board:

Why are high rep dips and pull-ups substituted for muscle-ups instead of low rep weighted dips and pull-ups. For most people muscle ups are low rep strength work so why not substitute the same? Is there any reason crossfit never has workouts with weighted dips or pull-ups?

Ryan,

I believe that some Crossfitters do use weight (weight vest, harness, belt, etc) with pull-ups / dips on occasion to mix things up a bit.

Some of the mentally disturbed ones even use a weight vest for muscle-ups. ahem... :-)

How is it recommended that people perform the exercise, and why?
