So I got some flak today about how I said muscle-ups are easy.  I’ve been doing muscle-ups on a bar since like 2006.  I hit my first one from the rings in like 2008.  I’m no expert in functional fitness, but here’s how you do them:

1) Get good at pull-ups.

2) Pull-up really hard.

3) Push yourself the rest of the way up.

Here’s a video from a while back when I was sporting a mini-mullet where I hit a set of muscle-ups and then garishly pretend like they’re really easy.

I think I was around 250lbs in this video.
