Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

One cue for the transition that occurred to me recently is: think like you're racking a clean backwards. Rather than "catching" the bar on top of your shoulders, you're catching it below them, and the action of spinning your shoulders to get around it (rings in this case) is similar. Might help someone.

Haven't seen any vids cover this yet.
Hi Steven, I'm more of a lurker than a poster around here but I'm curious about this as I've seen you and others mention getting MU's without the kip, and it's something I'd really like to learn.

Basically, I can do kipping MU's decently well, but I can't even come close to just pulling myself up into and through the transition from a dead hang. I'm assuming you're referring to a movement similar to the one at the very beginning of this video (wfs):

Is there anything you would recommend other than just working pull ups and dips in order to develop the necessary strength?

Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

Weighted pullups and dips will help you more (on rings of course).

If you really want it the best way is to get someone to assist you a bit through the transition by giving you some lift in the hips or legs. You can use bands as well but that's kinda awkward.

I kinda detailed the transition above.. so that's mainly what you need to work on.
