I was wondering about some methods to improve muscle ups. i was thinking deeeeep ring dips, weighted ring dips, pullups, and weighted pullups. Is there another particular method that works better than others? thanks!

Not really. Getting your dip and pullup powerful are the primary drivers. Both need to be full ROM. Then it's just a technique thing to get the MUs really going.

At what point should you know that it is just technique holding you back?

If you can do a very high pullup and a deep dip, it is technique holding you back. At the very MOST, if you have the strength to do at least 3 of each then it is technique. Strength is required, obviously, but it is given TOO much importance. I've seen people say 10 pullups and 10 dips or up to 15 of each. There's no need to be able to do that many to start working technique. You can work technique if you can't even do any (negatives).

Ditto on technique. I can do 15+ L pull-ups, 30 kipping pull-ups, and 3-5 muscle-ups. I find that Muscle-ups require a certain quickness. When I'm attempting multiple reps, I don't waste time at the bottom. I drop down and then as quickly and violently as I can, I pop right back up and thru the transiion point. Your false grip has to be good to handle to added G-force of the violent stop and pull at the bottom. My goal, however, is to perform muscle-ups with more strength and less technique.

I just got my first two muscle-ups last night (on a pullup bar, no rings to work with yet). A post about hand position is what made the difference for me. Someone in a different thread suggested moving your hands in closer. That was exactly what I needed to get past my sticking point and get on top of my hands. Exploding through the pullup as fast as possible doesn't hurt either.

im having trouble getting 2 consecutive muscle-ups. :angry: im guessing the best way to fix that is to do more muscle-ups.
