Hi guys

I've been hellish busy with work and prep for a Muay Thai fight so haven't been able to keep up with the last few weeks of WOD's,:sorry:although I have been applying CF methods to how I train!

My question is how can I maintain a false grip so that I can go for multiple reps. I got my first muscle up only recently (2/3 weeks ago or so). I can get about 5 single reps but consistently fail to maintain the false grip on the way down. If I can get multiple reps it will have an awesome carry over to the thai clinch so any help is appreciated.

I achieved my 1st MU last month, and got my first multiple last week (now up to 4 max). So far, I have found that going really slow through the transition in reverse/on the way down is the only way I can maintain the false grip.

Use chalk if you can, and slow down your descent during the transition down into the pullup.

And practice, practice, practice, practice.

Start turning your wrists to regrip in the false grip position when you start lowering from support. They should already be in a full false grip by the time you hit the top part of the transition (bottom part of the dip). Most of you are probably just starting the grip change too late which makes you miss the hand position all together.
