Re: muscle up

I agree with Dean- that garage looks like one sweet set up. Nice job on the MU too- you should try and get one strict. It won't take you very long to get.

Re: muscle up

Congrats! Keep going and achieve those goals. Just some advice, since you've done a muscle up, set your standard even higher now so you have so motivation to keep going. Best of luck!

That vid went on Youtube and Facebook to all of my peeps with quickness! Especially my wife who enjoyed laughing at me flop all over the rings in my garage for the last few months lol!

There's not a drug in the world that could replicate the feeling of that first muscle-up! Keep up the good work, bro!
Couldn't agree more with everything that's been said, it's taken me about a month to finally turn one over last night. For me it was getting the proper false grip on the rings, it made a huge difference. Once I got that down I didn't even have to kip as much as thought. Quite the feeling!
