A Breakdown of the Self-Spot Strict Muscle-up: ______________________________________________________ We use this progression in our @thegymnasticscourse Seminars as a progression for strict muscle-ups. It is also a great teaching tool to help athletes understand the movement pattern and strength requirements for the Strict Muscle-Up. •••• The pull to push: The objective here is to get the rings as low as possible so that as you’re transitioning you are coming Over the top and around versus straight up through the rings. The pull gets the rings below the chin. The push down on the rings gets them to the sternum. The rings should be in contact with the body and the body at an angle. The transition: The shoulders move around and over the top of the rings to the receiving position, the bottom of a ring dip. The chest should be tall with shoulder stacked on hips and head up with eyes looking to the horizon. Head/eyes should NEVER be looking toward the ground. This will cause the chest and shoulders to drop lower than you want to catch. Therefore, creating more work out of the dip or catching too low and missing the transition all together. The control decent to transition: When working the strict, the movement does not end with the lockout of the dip. For better strength and awareness, you want to work the decent as well. Coming down to the bottom of the dip, the feet are back behind the hips. The shoulders drop back behind the rings (body at angle). The rings stay close to the body and as you’re dropping the shoulders back you have to be PUSHING down on the rings. The start and finish position is with the shins and top of the foot flat on the ground, butt resting on calves and the body is directly under the ring attachments and knees in front of the rings. •••• @karhustrength @crossfittraining #thegymnasticscourse #strictmuscleup #muscleup #crossfit

Do you look like you’re trying to squeeze an orange between your knees at the bottom of the jerk dip? Here are some ways to fix it. Bear in mind that this is an extremely stubborn problem to fix for most people, so be patient and don’t abandon a correction too quickly if it seems like it’s not working. The first thing to try is different stance widths and degree of toe-out. You may find a change in stance eliminates or greatly reduces the problem. Also be sure you’re not shifting your weight forward as you dip—maintain full contact of the entire foot with the floor, with a bit more pressure toward the heels than the balls of the feet. If those simple fixes don’t work, use pause jerks—pause 3 seconds in the bottom of the dip and maintain tension through the legs and hips. As you begin the drive, actively keep the knees out in line with the toes. You can do the same thing with jerk drives. Use jerk dip squats with a slow eccentric and pause, actively maintaining knee alignment with the corresponding foot. Take 3-5 seconds to complete the dip, and pause for another 3-5 seconds. Next, use slow motion push presses to perform the entire dip and drive motion with the ability to more easily feel continuous tension in the legs and hips. Once past the beginning of the drive, you can accelerate enough to complete the push press. Finally, perform depth drops into the jerk dip position. Mark the correct foot position on the floor if needed, step off the box, land on flat feet and absorb the force by sitting into the correct dip position with your knees remaining aligned with your feet, and hold a second or two. Use sets of 3-5 reps for all of these exercises. And don’t forget, you should also be doing unilateral leg work like single-leg RDLs, single leg squats, and single-leg glute bridges for hip stability in general. Tag an orange-squeezer. #jerk #valgus #thevalgusIactuallycareabout #weightlifting #catalystathletics #usaw #iwf @earthfedmuscle

We want to maintain a fairly constant back angle through the first pull, although we’ll nearly always see a slight change. . The hips shooting up dramatically more than the shoulders and bar rise creates a two big potential problems: It tends to shift balance too far forward, and it tends to force an early second pull, which reduces bar speed and elevation and also disrupts balance. . 2 basic reasons for this to happen. . First is a rush to break the bar off the floor. Yanking the bar will nearly always cause the hips to shoot up before the shoulders. . Bar separation does not by any means need to be slow—you just have to control your position regardless of your speed. Ensure tension throughout the body before the start, and imagine pushing your legs through the floor to drive your chest up away from it, just as you would in a squat. . The second main cause is weakness of the legs relative to the hips. The knees are at a very small angle in the starting position that’s difficult for the quads to open. . The body will always shift into the strongest position for a given task—in this case, the knees will open without actually moving the load commensurately and shift more of the initial lifting to the hips. . The idea of pushing with the legs like a squat will still be helpful, but in this case, you need to improve position-specific strength to see real improvement. . First ensure all pulls and deadlifts are performed with the correct positions—reduce weights if needed or you’re simply going to continue reinforcing the incorrect positions. . Use pauses in pulls and deadlifts, particularly immediately after bar separation and at the knee, ensuring correct posture is maintained. You can also add slow eccentrics as long as you maintain the correct position all the way to the floor. Use pulls from a riser to improve starting strength at even smaller knee angles, and use pause back squats to further develop strength from a small knee angle. . Tag a friend who has no control. .
