Thumbs up Re: 1st Muscle-Ups!

Way to go guys! Feels awesome, doesn't it? You can get your name up in the muscle-up club if you bug Lynne.

A quick tip: You'll save your arms from bruising if you start in the false grip with the buckles facing each other.

Once again, congrats!

Brendan

Congrats.

Another method for saving your arms from bruising is just slide the cambuckle to the top before starting.

Re: 1st Muscle-Ups!

Thanks guys! Especially for the tips. My arms look I put them thru a meat grinder. I was thinking about buying some extra straps and double hanging them, but your ideas are easier and cheaper!

After the first one, the rest were easy. Didn't miss after that.

I'm pumped!

Re: 1st Muscle-Ups!

Congrats. I still haven't done one on rings yet. I can do them on a bar. They are a bit ugly, but I can do them. I almost got one the other day on my rings....it definitely helps to watch people on video and see how they do it. I'm thinking a ring muscle up for me is right around the corner
