WODdoc Episode 166 Project365: Bar Muscle-up Progression: Tier V
Tier V: this is the final progression before attempting unassisted bar muscle-ups. I refer to these as banded high bar transitions. This is basically the entire sha-bang using a band to de-load the movement, minus the dip out. Things to keep in mind. Just because we’re using a band doesn’t mean anything changes. We still have to pull keeping our elbows tight and back. Our body’s must stay rigid and in a hollowed position. As we approach the transition our thought is to sit-up strong “looking for our feet.” Remember to simultaneously draw your feet back toward the vertical plane of the bar.
1. Get comfortable with this movement. Accumulate 15 pulls and 15 transitions like shown in the video. If you feel comfortable enough perform 15 complexes (1 pull + 1 transition).
