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.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

I’d would say this was around 1981. As you can see I was and will be a Cowboys fan forever.
#dallascowboys Some skate time with my boys. One word comes to my mind looking at this, domination.  Aiming high in 2018.

My son’s first race, and my first race with my son. That’s what I’m saying. First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot
