They wanted full lock-out so I gave them full lock-out

Here's a link to the video:

I nailed it my 2nd try. I'm going to do the 30 ring MUs for time when I get back home in the evening... All full lock-out!

30 Ring Muscle-ups for time:

DNF got 20 in 51:57 but got to 19 around the 25 minute mark! My ego would not let me settle for 19 and I fought it and fought it until I caught the 20 at a super deep low dip. My arms are done and my wrists are torn into shreds. I need to buy that grip tape for my wrists next time...

P.S. Oh and by the way... they were all full lock-out (rings turn to the outside). Maybe next time I'll just go for no ring turn as a progression with the MUs so I can hit 30 easier...
