CrossFit Games Breakdown - Regionals Workouts - Pt.3


With the 2011 CrossFit Games Regionals Workouts announced ahead of the competition this year, we are fortunate enough to get a chance to break down some of the key gymnastics movements for you with some final coaching tips and cues. In this video, Carl talks about the Muscle Up, and how to connect them efficiently and under control.

False grip or no-false grip, the key to connect your Muscle Ups for volume is to get your swing under control. Just like Kipping Pull-Ups, you will want to push away to straighten your arms on the descend to get momentum and rhythm in your swing. Note that with a false grip, you should kip smaller and swing less to facilitate your transition with your false grip position.
