Do muscleups count on pullup bars? I did my first one yesterday on one of those pullup bars where the center is cut out so that the only options are wide grip and parallel grip pullups. I brought my arms in as close together as possible while still in an overhand false grip, pulled up as hard as I could, hit my sticking point at the top of the pullup, then just kept on pulling/pushing until I got into dip position, and then I just rather easily pushed myself up. It was a pretty great feeling at the top. Anyways, does this count for anything? Oh yeah, to kind of balance out the day I also drilled drop and hang snatches with 55 lbs and did 2 pathetic singles in the olympic squat with 205 lbs.

hell yeah it counts! (personally i think it may even be a little more difficult on a bar, but can't really back this up since i have only done one on a bar!) the one thing with the rings is that you have to deal with them swaying around, but with the bar you really don't have the advantage of the false-grip you get on the rings.

What you did is tougher than doing them on rings, so I would give you credit :-)
