My first training video! The Muscle-up

Hey guys this is my first training video. Tell me what you think!

I need to find a way to zoom in on my hands with the editing software when I am talking about hand placement. Video Here

Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

Looks like there is a push from the legs for the muscle ups, might be an idea to put the rings a bit higher and do a muscle up from a hang?

Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

Not half bad.

I kinda don't like how most of CF doesn't teach proper technique for the transition because of kipping. Yes, it's great to get them with kipping, but if you're doing an MU workout and you're starting to fatigue you have to know how to do it well enough that even if your kipping fails you can push through the transition. Haven't seen any vids cover this yet.

For me, the key was this phrase: "pull your body through and settle your shoulders over the rings". At least to me it clicks in my brain for the transition, and so far it has helped my crossfittesr as well. It also helps that they simply cant kip with the rings so low.

How would you phrase the transition Steven?

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

I meant learning to pull through it slowly as in having enough strength to turn it over.

It's more or less aiming for:
1. hands at pecs in high pullup w/ false grip
2. drive head forward between rings, elbows out directly behind, hands to armpits
3. catch hands at armpit and stabilize

Very similar to the top portion of say a bent over barbell row or C2 rowing hands to the chest arms behind.

We have been focusing on the MU at my place for the past couple of weeks. Due to my recent knee injury I have no rapid flexion ability in my right leg, virtually eliminating mostly any kipping I may be able to accomplish. I made exactly this point to some people - basically saying that if I could do a raw dog MU in my current state, imagine what I could do if I could kip, and who's really stronger. I think I am in that sense because I'm being forced to learn how to "muscle through" the movement.

Good point Steve.

Re: My first training video! The Muscle-up

Yep. It's a fundamental gymnastics move anyway (not even rated anymore unlike say back and front lever which are A skills) so pretty much every kid past like level 5 knows how to do it without kipping... for tons of reps. If you wanna be strong in the upper body you should learn how to do these.
