CrossFit TTG – CrossFit
Muscle Up Skill
A: Metcon (4 Rounds for reps)
:30 False Grip Hold from Pull Up Bar
Rest as needed
5-10 False Grip Ring Rows/Ring Pull Ups
Rest as needed
4 sets of 1-2 Strict Muscle Ups
Rest: As prescribed
Coach Focus: Our #1 objective with today’s skill work is getting athletes
comfortable with using the false grip. Developing the ability to maintain this style of grip is integral when it comes to learning how to perform strict muscle ups and unfortunately for most they do not ever practice or learn this movement or style of grip.

B: Metcon (Time)
Team of 3; 15 Rounds, alternating full rounds
1 Set of Muscle Ups*
1 Set of Muscle Ups
P1: muscle ups/run/muscle ups; P2: muscle ups/run/muscle ups; P3 muscle ups/run/ muscle ups
*If the athlete is able to consistently hit strict
muscle ups, have them perform the first set strict
Target Score: 20-30 Minutes depending on muscle up size. We’re looking for anywhere from 2-5 reps per set of muscle ups.
Firebreather Score: on the lower end of the target time, with 3+ muscle ups on each set.
– Muscle ups: Strict low ring muscle up or jumping ring muscle up (aim
for 3-5 reps per set) CTB Pull Ups, Chin over bar pull ups, banded pull ups or ring rows
– Run: 400m C2 Bike or .5/.4K AAB, or 80 Double Unders, avoid Row/Ski
if at all possible
Coach’s notes: athletes with only muscle up singles may make 2 attempts at muscle ups per round, however be mindful of the time it takes them to do so. You may also allow athletes to do a muscle up, then a few reps of a scaled movement, or mix and match. Athletes do not have to perform the
same number of reps on either side of the run, so encourage athletes who have muscle ups to do a slightly bigger set to start while they’re fresher.
