Who here can do muscle ups?
>how many regular pullups could you do before success?
>any tips for babby's first muscle up?
Currently do multiple sets of 10 slow (non-kipping) pullups.
>inb4 meme exercise
>i dont care, they look fun as hell
Muscle-up guy here. The people calling them a meme exercise simply can't do them. The muscle up's association with crossfit has also given them a bad name. For a general upper body workout, no movement hits more or works the upper body as a whole more so than a muscle up.
The most I've ever done in a row is 15, they suck to do in that high of a volume, since your hands get ground up on the bar:
Form in the video wasn't the greatest, since I was just going for reps. I usually do sets of 5, and make sure I go all the way down at the bottom of the movement, and lock out my triceps at the top.
Muscle-ups don't have much more of strength requirement than pullups, the barrier from being able to do them is getting an understanding of the movement, and how it differs from a pullup. A muscle up is an arcing motion, where a pullup is strictly vertical. I just spent a few months trying them on days where I did pullups until I eventually got the motion down. At the time I got my first muscle up, I was able to do around 12 strict form pullups.
Calisthenicsfag here, my record is 21 but around 17 i kip a little, never really incorporated them in my training beacause it doesnt fit my split routine, if you want to get better try dips and then negative muscleups and of course pullups, if you can do at least 1 and have a pullup bar at home try doing 1 muscleup throughout the day a lot of times.
Found the fat butthurt powerlifters,
I think it's the only exercise where I'd agree that the term is fitting
I can do 20 pull ups, yet not even one muscle up. it's basically just the swinging technique you need to know and that's some bouldering-tier shit right there
>training for 6 weeks doing pull ups and chinups
>increased reps by 2 at a week and a half
>haven't progressed so far
Fucking fuck shit. What am I missing? I can only do 3x6 pullups and 3x11 chinups
explain how any of these movements are useful in the real fucking world, mate?
Shit-tier crossfit exercise.
Farmers walks are the only exercise you need to be infinitely useful in the real world and impress chicks.
> anon can you help carry this way heavy stuff because ur so strong?
um, no, but I can prance about and lift myself up over this bar right here. Look! up! Down! Up! Down! see how strong I am!
i dont train them on a bar but i do 3x6 non-kipping deadhang ring muscleups twice a week.
i could do 18 strict chins before i started training muscleups. muscleups have entirely replace chins and pulls in my routine because i find the exercise a lot more enjoyable.
Do negatives as slow as possible. Explode upwards and then go down for 4+ seconds.
Also, always do the hardest pull-up there is for you. 11 chinups means that its time to start adding weight, throw 10-20lbs in that backpack and go for 4-5 reps. Pullups actually become quite easy once your grip gets strong enough to let you rest while hanging
It's a pull up and a dip. That's it. Give me an example outside of the gym where you have had to squat 140kg in the real world 5 times with 3 minutes rest and repeat another two times??
If we're doing movements that related to uses in the real world we wouldn't be doing lateral raises either. Or do you have long shoe laces with your clown shoes.
considering that the reason I'm working out is the irrational fear that I'll somehow find myself hanging from a cliff,
(or that I'll have to escape a rouge government agency that has mistaken me for the man that is going to expose their dirty dealings)
I'm definitely going to start doing those.
two distinct movements combined into one shitty crossfit movement with extremely poor form and bad for every joint involved.
go fuck yourself with your crossfit shit mate. Your only hope is roids.
so are you b8ing or are you really this ignorant.
>pic related, the deadlift is a shitty crossfit movement
It's no more of a meme exercise than pullups and dips. Done with correct form, you're basically performing a pullup and a dip with an added degre of difficulty and additional muscle recruitment.
If you just want to impress normies though, a flag or a one arm chin would be a better choice.
>Muscle-ups don't have much more of strength requirement than pullups, the barrier from being able to do them is getting an understanding of the movement, and how it differs from a pullup.
yeah everyone knows. thats why they are calling it a meme lift and just gymnastics
spend time working on form for what? just do weighted pullups
>going for reps with muscleups
have fun fucking up your shoulders. muscleups are just a notch below crossfit kipping pullups
