The Muscle-up

The heart of the muscle-up is the transition from pull-up to dip — the agonizing moment when you don’t know if you’re above or below. That moment — the transition — can last from fractions to dozens of seconds. At low, deliberate speeds, the muscle-up takes a toll physically and psychologically that can only be justified by the benefit. No other movement can deliver the same upper body strength. Period.
