Positive and Negative Muscle-Up overview
After the warm-up explain and demonstrate for the positive and negative muscle-up on the low rings. Members will transition through the rings on their tippy toes, dipping out of the bottom dip position to top ring support. Then they’ll go back through the rings doing a negative muscle-up on the way down. Planting tippy toes on the ground then transitioning back through the rings, slow and steady throughout.
If a member can’t hold top ring support then have them work on the transitions without dipping out of the bottom, you might add a few reps to each set for this option.
Members will need to have their tippy toes on the ground and directly under the rings during their positive muscle-up transition and potentially on the negative muscle-up transition as well. If a member can do the negative muscle-up with their feet off the ground then offer that tougher variation as well, instead of tippy toes on the ground.
Have members partner up for these drills and have them each complete 4 sets of 5 repetitions. 1 partner works while other partner rests.
