Well I surprised myself today. After four days of not exercising (because I have had a very difficult decision to make) I cycled out to the pull up up bar today to resume my training. I went to a different bar, one where my feet are just off the ground when I hang, and I managed my first muscle up.
The form was absolutely shocking. I lifted my right arm over the bar (I hope that makes sense), dragged myself onto the bar and lifted. But the fact remains it was my first hanging muscle up so there is hope 🙂 now I have to really work on the form and building up the strength to go over with both arms at the same time.
Thanks for the tips and I am going to get back to it!
