    Why you’re losing false grip in ring muscle ups

    By David (Jacko) Jackson

    Losing false grip is the main reason we find that people can’t link more than one ring muscle up together. What we find is that most lose false grip on the eccentric (lowering phase) after completing the first rep because they don’t replicate the same movement pattern as on the way up. It’s simple. Once you get the ‘hang of it’, you need to reverse the movement pattern with your body position and you’ll find holding that false grip so much easier.

    The video below will help show you why you’re losing false grip and how to fix it.



    The video tutorial is taken from our muscle ups training programmes. If you want all the video tutorials and access to the full programme, sign up for a FREE 7 day trial to our online membership – here.
