How to Do a Muscle Up on Gymnastic Rings
In some circles, the muscle up is considered the ultimate ring exercise. Well, I do think it’s a great exercise. I believe it’s simply a transitional move that allows us to go from below the rings to above the rings.
With that being said, it doesn’t make the most look any less impressive once you get it. So, let’s take a look at how to master this move.
First of all, we really want to focus on the false grip. That’s what’s going to allow us to a transition from below the rings to above the rings.
Pull hard into the pull up. Get your shoulders over your hands. Once you can do that, it’s an easy transition by just doing a regular dip. So if we watch this one more time, false grip here. I lean back keeping back my feet in front of me, pull hard getting my shoulders over my hands and exhale as I push up into the dip.
Keeping your elbows close to your body will really help with the muscle up. But as you progress, feel free to take your elbows out to the side even further. This will make it harder and actually helps to strengthen your muscle up.
