WOW my rings turned up yesterday and im glad to say that they were infact worth the weight. I hung them over the rafters above and to the left of the pullup bar in the picture on the left and began with an intro to the rings. I was truly shocked at how much it actually takes to keep those babies still, not to worry though I now have a lifetime to practice. Ive ordered a pair from Ahmik aswell and they will be with me next week I would say if you have the chance do business with him, he's kind and just generally a good person from what I have found.

My aim -- get on the muscle up board by April.. WITH VIDEO PROOF OFCOURSE.

Leon, cant wait to meet you in NYC. We are up and running! Keith is great at dishing out the pain! I am waiting for mine as well. Although muscle ups are a dream. First I gotta to accomplished unassisted pullups. Shoulder weak from surgery. Still pluggin at it and see amazing gains!

I'm obviously not too worried, having waited this long, I figured I'd wait to get 10 in a row and re-apply then.

Back to the original post, Leon, work on that false grip, squeeze really hard on the grip, try to accelerate the pullup at the top and keep the rings in as close to your mid-chest as you can as your enter into the transition, good luck.

Mike and James,
Did you remember to send the check? I never got it...:smiley_evilGrin:

For free, I'll post you in Jan 07. To re-do the whole chart and put you in your chronological spot, there's money or other bribe goods involved. Let me know...
