Bar Muscle Up Progression Pt.2


In this series Carl breaks down the Bar Muscle Up movement into a few strength and skill progressions to help you pull up over the bar and into the support position.

In this video, Carl breaks down the transition of the Bar Muscle Up movement. Similar to a Kipping Ring Row or Hanging Bar Row, the transition starts off with a big hip drive to the bar -- this is the same hip thrust from the end of your Hip-to-Bar pull up. While you are floating in a globally extended position from the hip drive with your head and chest over the bar, use that moment of weightlessness to do a fast sit up and fold over the bar. Note that as you do you sit-up, you do want your legs to drop so they can facilitate the rotation of your upper body to finish over the bar.
