I just nailed my first muscleup on the rings, but I throw a kip during the transition... are there any restrictions on form, or is it just wriggle and worm yourself up by whatever means possible until you can take it smoothly?

I'll try to post a vid in the Digital Coaching section sometime soon.

Anything is fine really. Technique will help you get an extra few reps when your kipping fails though. In any case, make sure you aren't getting one arm up at a time as that will become a bad habit.

For metcon workouts kipping is fine and even preferred as you know with pullups.... same for muscle ups. I would, however, advise people to learn the technique because it helps vastly with any of the kinds of muscle ups you will face both on a bar, on rings or on a ledge like in Parkour climbing up obstacles. :-)

Thanks. Just reaffirming my thoughts.

I find them easier on a bar though, since its immobile and when you start failing you can cheat, leaning forward and using friction to hold yourself through the transition.
