Muscle-up and ring training guide

The Ring Training Guide has now been superceded by the Elite Fitness Manual. Click here for details.

crossfit ring training guideThe muscle-up is one of the most challenging tests of strength for the amateur trainee. If you’ve mastered dips and pull-ups and you are looking for your next challenge, add the muscle-up to your arsenal.

If you want to learn this difficult move you will need some excellent guidance and Crossfit London’s Ring Training guide by Andrew Stemler is just what you need. I have been using this myself and it is brilliant – lots of drills, great pictures, easy to use. The introductory sections include items freely available elsewhere but the real meat of the guide is all the muscle-up stuff, which isn’t available anywhere else.

The guide also covers more basic ring training so even if you are not ready for the muscle-up yet, you will benefit from the instruction. The guide’s content includes:

  • Full body ring training guide, including how to perform squats, dips, chest flys etc on the rings
  • A-Z of pull-up training
  • Muscle-up progressions and drills
  • Muscle-up instruction

So if you want to take full advantage of your rings and get a muscle-up this year, considering investing the price of a pint in a decent guide to help you on your way.
