bar muscle up

i've been able to do bar muscle ups (w/o false grip) for a long time, thanks to learning the kip from crossfit.

however, i've seen those gangster dudes doing bar muscle up (w/o false grip), but without kipping. i've been kipping so much that i can't seem to figure out how to do it without kipping. i've been trying to deadhang pullups where i touch the bottom of my sternum, but i haven't able to progress any further than that

got any ideas? i believe doing this will go a long way into helping me do a strict muscle up on the rings

The strict bar muscle-up is the hardest of the four muscle-ups, harder than the strict rings muscle-up.

Re: bar muscle up

by strict bar muscle-up i think you mean one with a false grip on the bar.

i'm referring to something more like this (no false grip)

Re: bar muscle up

I've been watching the Barbarians and Bartendaz for a while now, amazed at their gymnastic abilities.

I've been watching and it seems that a few of them will bring their hands in closer together. Although it doesn't seem like a kip, they are violently pulling themselves upwards, which "throws" them over the bar. In other words, i think I kip with their shoulders, and core...

this is all speculation... good luck.

He's "kipping." Well, at least he's (1) using a significant amount of energy from the stretch-shorten cycle that you can get from bouncing your shoulders at the bottom. This is part of what you would call kipping.. so I can't say with honesty that it's totally strict. Plus, (2) if you look at his body angle under the bar, it's not completely vertical which means he's using backwards swing to rotate his body around the bar.

A STRICT deadhang you'll have to take a false grip on the bar and start completely vertical. Used to have a vid of me doing 10 somewhere.. I'll look for it.

In the meantime, scroll down to the bottom of the page for Jim's bar MU tips. wfs

Re: bar muscle up

your right, i guess it could be considered a partial kip, but its definitely stricter than mine

i would love to be able to see a video of a strict bar muscle up - it seems like a really difficult skill. i imagine that the transition part will take a lot of tricep strength. i can feel it in my elbows everytime i unsuccessfully attempt to do it

Re: bar muscle up

A strict bar MU is a damn dynmaic pull... Obvioulsy you will not be kipping it but you must compensate for the lack of momentum with something,,, that thing is called strength! And of course the strict movement itself. Both arms working in the dymnamic pull above the bar in the same cadance!

Tough movement
