Tips: If you can’t do a muscle up yet, use a variation of the transition drill and discuss with the coach for additional tips for movement.  If you can do kipping muscle-ups, try to challenge yourself with strict reps. If you can do strict muscle-ups, try adding load. Use your warm-up to find a load for the medicine-ball cleans that allows you to complete 15 unbroken reps with flawless technique.

During your warm-up, experiment with foot position in the transition drill. Moving your feet away from you will increase the difficulty. Use a position that is challenging but allows for smooth execution. During either your warm-up or cool-down, consider including push-ups and ring rows to begin developing the necessary strength for the muscle-up.
