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.
