muscle-upWe all know and love the ring muscle-up.  It’s a fun exercise and feels great the first time we accomplish our first rep.  On the flip side of the coin, it’s also an exercise that can lead to injury if done poorly.

One of the biggest problems I see with the muscle-up is a lack of guided progression from start to finish.  I see a lot of first timer muscle-ups that honestly make me cringe and fear for people’s shoulder joints.  Myself and good friend Dave Tilley (Who also happens to be a therapist, athlete and gymnastics coach) have produced a definitive video guide on how to progress from A to Z with the ring muscle-up.   We wanted to produce an educational piece that provides athletes and coaches with ammunition to get to their goal of muscle-up mastery.  Our goal was to produce a video that could be used with anyone no matter where they were in their level of strength or gymnastics competency.   Enjoy.
