Muscle Up Critique

This is the best I have done to date on my muscle up form so far and number of reps, but from what I see it looks like I'm pulling too early in the kip whenever I fatigue and not getting high enough. Opinions?

Re: Muscle Up Critique

I know this doesn't answer your question, but have you ever tried one wothput a kip? It seems like you have enough strength to do one.

Re: Muscle Up Critique

Work up to a no-kip muscle up.

It will teach you better fundamentals... so when you're fatigued you can generally get out more reps even with kipping.

Re: Muscle Up Critique

You need to work on your ring dip strength. Or kip the ring dip version with the tuck hip extension.

Of course, working it strict makes it easy when you kip.

Re: Muscle Up Critique

I have tried without kip and usually I can get just high enough to almost get my chest through the rings but not enough. Thats where I really need the kip, to get me over the rings and into the dip.

How would you go about training to get it with no kip? How do you practice the transition with load but no kip?

Thanks.

Re: Muscle Up Critique

heavy weighted pullups will increase your pulling power as well as the ease ofo pulling the rings into the sternum

high reps of VERY deep ring dips will help with the second phase.

A few months of this makes the strict muscle up fairly easy

Re: Muscle Up Critique

If you access to weight bands, find the smallest or second smallest band and GTG.
