What’s up Taiji Fam? Welcome back to another video with the Taiji legacy. In today’s video, I want to show you how you can muscle-up when you’re fatigued. Set new PR’s, get more reps. See you guys in the video. Hope you enjoy! 🙂 So getting straight into the video. The keyword is going to be separation. But more specifically creating as minimal separation from you and the bar as… possible, as much as you can. When I normally do muscle-ups, I try to go for the feel, that feels more comfortable for me. So if I were to do a muscle-up right now, it’ll be like this… Right? That feels extremely… comfortable for me. But in order for me to get more reps, set new PR’s, do the muscle-up when I’m fatigued. The way for you to do… that is to make sure that the length that you are creating from you and the bar is as minimized as possible. So a few days ago, me and the boys did a pull workout and in that pull workout… the superset was muscle-ups. When we got to the second set. I wasn’t able to do any more reps. I felt really fatigued and I needed to Kip. But even by kipping I was struggling. One thing that I did, take these exact steps. So the first step is positioning your hands closer together, having a little bit of a false grip, and then as I said before… minimizing the separation. That feels comfortable to me. And then once I try to create as little* separation as possible… it becomes drastically easier. When you go into the muscle-up, we always say that you should mimic an ‘S’ or ‘C’ like motion. For now, you’re trying to make the muscle-up as straight… as possible. Just like this. See what I mean right there. That’s what I’m talking about. So in a later video, we talked about the crocodile technique. Now… it didn’t make sense to a lot of people because I was just creating nonsense and I was explaining it incorrectly. It was all about creating less separation from the way you pull from the bar. Usually, I like to pull from my forearms length or a bit farther away from that. Now I want you guys to focus on creating… only about two to four inches away from you and the bar. The bar’s here. I’m trying to create probably this much space, That’s it. One more time. The first video or the big video that really helped me get my first muscle-up on a consistent basis was the… the idea of the muscle of is a lat pull down, and the way you should do the muscle-up is by… visualizing that it is a lat pull-down. But by eliminating that mindset. Not really genuinely go in a full up and downright position… Just keep the idea. Yes, you can do it in a ‘C’ like motion. But try to minimize the gap between you and the bar. It’s gonna make it much more sustainable, much easier. The reps are gonna feel more clean. You’ll feel more explosive. And also, there’s one big tip that I want to give you guys. You want to kind of flick the bar, just like when you’re pulling up to a jump shot in basketball, you are flicking your… wrist. In the same… situation once you get that little bit of diagonal swing. Flick your body up, flick your wrist and you’ll explode up. This is what I mean by it. I’ll do it normally. And then I’ll flick… There’s a little bit of a jolt in my body. Instead of going, this, it’s… We’re going to force my way up to the bar. So another big thing that I want to tell you guys is when you’re trying to learn the slow muscle-up, or the up and… down, fully strict muscle-up with a dead hang, no swing and just trying to pull up without swinging at all. In order for you… to do that. You have to minimize that separation. If you don’t do that… then you actually have to go dead hang and then swing a bit, and then pull up. If you want me to demonstrate it… I will demonstrate it. Close together, hands up, dead hang. We just wait a bit, because we’re swinging a bit. And then I’m up. There is a very little amount of distance between me and the bar. Now for the reason why this works as great as it does. Even though if you may not see it as we do, but you genuinely feel it. The reason for this is yes, you’re minimizing the separation… but you’re also, reducing the amount of time that you’re allowing your body or the muscle-up essentially, to make that transition. If I do a muscle-up and… I come up to that transition part, minimizing that separation. I’m able to drastically decrease the amount of time that I allow myself to actually complete the full muscle-up in general. That’s all I have for you guys.
