Muscle-Up Progressions




The following progressions are just a few of many muscle-up progressions that exist. My gym has limited pull-up bars, so for me, using an assisted pull-up machine and rings for progressions is sufficient. However, your gym might have varying levels of bars, which can be more useful when learning muscle-ups. Regardless of whether you practice on a bar or with an assisted pull-up machine, the push-off and band techniques in the below video can be utilized to build up the strength to an unassisted muscle-up. The ring progression shown, however, works best on rings.

I purchased the band used in the video on Amazon: WOD Nation Pull up Assistance Band Set

 


As an athlete for over 17 years and a broke single mom for most of that time, I created this site to aid not only broke single parents to a life of fitness, but anyone who believes the road to fitness requires a lot of cash or time. In reality, the way to fitness is paved with knowledge and firm principles; teaching readers how to master both is the goal of this site.
