After doing the MU's in Monday's WOD on a pullup bar, I suddenly had the feeling that I'm not doing a "real" bar MU. I may be instead doing a kip-up.

Basically on my bar MU's, I am putting a strong kip into my technique. After the last CFJ about kipping pull-ups, we all know that kipping is allowed and encouraged. However, does this rule also apply to MU's?

The reason I ask is because I remember one of the trainers at the February clinic telling me about a "kip-up" as he was giving me pointers on bar MU's. Is this what I'm doing?

Should've posted this to "Exercises". My fault.

I saw Pavel do of these* during a demo at the TSC in 2002. I've also heard it called a "Chinese pullup."

He actually kipped to the right (imagine a trying to snap your knee in a sideways arc towards your shoulder), which gave him enough momentum to get his right elbow over the bar and establish a "foothold." Then the other elbow comes over the top, and you dip up with both arms.

It sounds like it's a series of steps, but he pretty much did it in one motion. Pretty cool.

*A caveat, I don't know if there is a specific way this should be done for a WOD, it's just a way I've seen it done.

A dead hang kip to support on a bar is certainly doable. Actually once you get the timing and positions down you can get to a support rather quickly and easily. If your kipping pullup is strong, then it's just a matter of continuing the pull high piking as you clear the bar to get your weight over your hands then pushing. Good movement to train.

Link to a streamed photo sequence of a muscle-up on a power rack. The athlete kips for momentum:

I'm going to do that some day. Soon.
