I wanted to update everybody on my progress with Muscle-ups.
In January I put up a post showing how I was doing with muscle-up training at the time. You all gave me a great bunch of suggestions on how to train to get the Muscle-up DONE.
Here’s the original post with all of your comments: Muscle-up Tips. If YOU are thinking about training to do a muscle-up, I suggest you check the comments out on that post. They are awesome and have tons of good tips.
I really appreciate everybody’s assistance with this goal of mine.

The truth is I couldn’t train the muscle-up too much over the last few weeks because I was having intense pain in both biceps. That might have come from doing over 20 attempts on the muscle-ups last time…
Well, after doing quite a bit of stretching and extra recovery stuff for my biceps, I was finally able to try them again.
Two weeks ago on my upper body pull day, I did a ton of weighted pull-ups and dead-hang explosive pull-ups, as well as climbing pull-ups which have felt awesome.
So last week, since my biceps were feeling pretty good, I tried muscle-ups again, but this time, I limited it to much fewer sets and attempts so I don’t strain my biceps again.
Here’s the video. I got much closer this time and it felt much different without jumping into it.
One thing I forgot to try this time was the narrower grip. I started off with the wide grip and then remembered to try it narrower and it felt pretty good so the next time, I am going to try to remember to start out narrow.
Looking forward to trying some top-down training now that my biceps are healed up as well as modifying the starting height.
If you see anything I’m doing wrong with this non-jumping technique, please let me know by leaving a comment.
Thanks again for your help, everybody.
Even though the results of my hard work are coming slowly, I am really enjoying the journey on the way to my destination. Thanks again for all the help everyone has offered to me.
Keep up the good work in your training.
