Still Got Bar Muscle-ups

My shoulders and elbow area are feeling the chest program.


  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 10 Monster Toe Touches
  • RDLs
    • 10×45
    • 5×95


  • 12-10-8-6 Lateral Step-ups (L, 45-50-53-62#, 20”)
  • 15 Side Lunge with knee up
  • 12-10-8-6 Lateral Step-ups (R, 45-50-53-62#, 20”)
  • 15 Side Lunge with knee up

Still not sure those the side lunge movement does much here since it’s not a deep lunge.

4 Sets

  • 10 RDLs (145#)
  • 1:00 Rest


15:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 6 C&J (95#)
  • 10 DB Walking Lunges (45# DBs)
  • 6 Bar Muscle-ups

I did a single and a double bar muscle-up before the workout and didn’t have the hesitation I did a couple of weeks ago after putting up the bar. Once I got in to that first set the feel started coming back to me and I was able to do all five sets unbroken. Looking back, I haven’t done real bar muscle-ups in over a year and a half, back before COVID started. I did those fucked up reps during the AGOQ on the low bar in my garage, but I can’t really count those since they all had to be singles. Exciting I was able to pick them back up without a problem. My grips were a bit of an issue though and several times I could really feel my palm skin getting stretched, so I was worried about ripping. I think I used to wear a different set of grips for the BMU.
