PostSubject: What's an M-Up?   Mon Jan 05, 2009 10:58 pm

In a different post I read about an exercise called the "M-up." Is this where you pull up to one hand, then lower to the middle partially/fully, then pull-up the rest of the way to the other hand then lower? It seems like that would make an M. Or, is it some different move entirely? Also, the poster mentioned that he had a bar too low for him to do regular pull-ups from it, and this was the reason for the recommendation of the M-ups. Why does the low bar encourage the use of M-ups? Or was this just another exercise to try on the low bar from the L position (legs straight out, piked at the hips)? Thanks.

Hey David. m up is just an abbreviation for muscle up.

If you have a bar in the doorway, you can't practice muscle ups because you'll hit your head on the ceiling, but if you put the bar half way down then you can muscle up in the L-sit.

If all you have is a low bar, its not a limitation on your training. It just means you have a chance to become incredible in the L-sit. Just like if your shoulder is hurt, don't look at it as a limitation on training. Think of it as an opportunity to become incredible with your legs and core.
