Muscleup alternative?

Hey all,

I don't have a set of rings yet, and since the WOD tomorrow involves muscleups, what is a good alternative? I tried using the search function...nada.

Re: Muscleup alternative?

mel...
3.5. Substitute for muscle-up?

Pullups and dips. Some have suggested 1 min of both somewhat equates to one muscle-up. Most common substitution is 3 pullups +3 dips, or 4 pullups +4 dips.

please consult CrossFit FAQ

Its all there. Every bit of Coach G's wisdom.
