The Easiest Way To Achieve The Muscle Up!

 A little while ago I made a post on here about getting your first muscle up on rings. It was pretty detailed and included a great video as well. However, I did forget to mention one very important method of helping you achieve the muscle up on rings. Using a resistance band to help assist you through your muscle up is excellent way to work towards performing your first muscle up!

 I've found this method to be one of the best ways to progress towards performing a "no kip" muscle up. The use of the band helps reduce the percentage of your own body weight that you're actually lifting. I used simple yoga/pilates bands that you can pick up from a local Wal-Mart, they come in three different levels of tension strength. Simple use the band with the heaviest tension at first, and then move to the medium and light tension bands as you become stronger.

 Check out the video above for a detailed instructions on how to use resistance bands to aid you on your quest to performing your first muscle up!
