Deep Dips

IMG_9787Dawn working her way through her transition of her muscle up cycling two in a row.

The muscle up is an advanced skill and a great bench mark for most CrossFitters. There are a few important things to start working on if the skill still alludes you. First make sure you have a few good solid and very deep dips and that you are comfortable sitting in the bottom of that low dip. Next make sure you understand the false grip and are able to maintain it through a pullup to you clavicle. Then you get to start working the beautiful transition tracing your thumbs just below the clavicle into that deep dip.
