Starting tomorrow, the next 4 weeks will consist of ring gymnastics work with the goal of refining and bettering your understanding what goes on during a ring muscle up. There will be strength building parts, like dips and hanging. There will also be transition work to break down the most complicated part of the muscle up. Remember that we are on the never ending quest for virtuosity. Just because you can do a muscle up doesn’t mean you you have perfected it 🙂

Check out this video to see what true mastery of the rings looks like!

What we can learn from circus performers 🙂
https://www.nutritionaction.com/daily/exercise-for-health/what-cirque-du-soleil-performers-can-teach-us/

  • They exercise just under an hour a day
  • Almost no bone density loss up until age 60
  • Slower loss of muscle density

    “The Cirque athletes are not “circus freaks,” says Kriellaars, they’re just very consistent in their exercising and physical activity.”
