Practice Means Improvement
20 Muscle-upsToday’s workout involves a LOT of muscle ups. The muscle up in the world of gymnastics is a movement that isn’t even worthy of a skill rating (it’s so basic.) And yet for the rest of us “normal” human beings, it’s a very difficult, both in skill/technique, and in pure strength. For tips about how to improve your muscle up, here’s a link to an article/video in the CrossFit Journal… and if you don’t have a subscription, I highly recommend it – it’s $25/year very well spent!
When you come it for the workout today, we will have many options for you to “scale” the muscle up so that you are working on progressions that make sense for your experience, ability and training (3 broad categories of scaling options are: multiple pull-ups and dips, transition practice or full-blown muscle ups.) Don’t be afraid of it. Don’t avoid it because it’s something new, different or unknown – embrace the challenge and struggle, scale it appropriately… the road to real progress passes right through your weaknesses.
