Not only does this movement require a lot of upper body strength, but it also needs a fair degree of shoulder mobility to move through the deeper than usual ring dip position.The muscle up can broadly be divided into three sections:1) The chest to bar pull2) The transition3) The Ring DipThe range of motion for the pull-up and ring dip are more than would normally be done for those movements, so if you are training towards a muscle up, then make sure when you train these movements, you train the full range of motion you will need for the muscle-up.To make it a little easier when you start out, support some of your bodyweight by having your feet or toes on the ground or a box as you work through the movement.[/vc_column_text][us_separator][vc_column_text]
