Muscle-Ups

Out of nowhere I became obsessed with muscle-ups. The obsession is learning them, and performing them.   I can do pull-ups and dips with ease, but a muscle-up is harder than it looks.  After about a month and half, I would say I’m 70% there.  I have watched some varies videos to get some technical points, and a good starting point is to be able to do high pullups (up the nibbles or above) with ease.  I worked on this for about a month and I’m almost to the point where I can make that transition of getting over the bar to perform the push up.

Check out this dude below, incredible.

I made a decent pull-up bar in my garage for about $25.  I went to home depot and got a 1″ galvanized steel pipe cut and had them cut it to 5′.  Got some 1″ inch u-brackets, and wood screws.  I have the pipe laying on top of some rafters and I used the u-brackets to secure the pipe, works perfectly.

My new drinking buddy, a man of few words. Picking pumpkins. So nasty. Early morning squat day. Trying to destroy my chicken legs Barnes and Noble vinyl section is growing since the last time I was there. Some good selections.
#vinylrules My son Andrew’s first middle school cross county meet.  Looking relaxed and having fun. At my sons baseball game. Get it in when you can.
#strictpullupsforlife I saw this tour at the New Haven Coliseum in New Haven, CT back in 1989.  The line-up was a bit different, Big Daddy Kane was there instead of Too Short, and NWA never showed up which was a bummer!  Killer show.
