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.

Heading home during my run and I see this guy standing in the middle of the road with a tripod and camera. This was about as random as you can get. Having fun on my nephews drum kit. My Crew. Snow run. A little Sunday road trip. The human flag.  This a move that if you stop doing it it becomes more difficult to perform. Muddy trail run.
#shammasandals Another past time hobby of mine.  This unusually warm weather wants me to dust off the longboard. A quick KB circuit. Hits the cardio as well as everything else. 50lb KB

3 Rounds as quick as possible.
2 - windmills
5 - rack squats
6 - snatches
On both right and left sides. Outside kettle bell drills. One arm snatches with a 50lb kettle bell.
