Muscle-Up, Vol 1: Grip

Welcome to our new video series, Virtuosity, featuring gymnastics expert Coach Dusty Hyland. Today's video is the first in a series that will build you up to the coveted muscle-up.

In part two of our road to the muscle-up, gymnastics expert and coach Dusty Hyland talks about the importance of the hollow position and how to practice the hollow hold.
On our way to a muscle up, this week's focus is a tight arch - not that sloppy thing you call a superman, but a clean movement requiring strength, mobility, and coordination.
This week we learn about the "support hold" - the finishing position for the muscle-up. The small details of the position are covered, as well as accessory exercises.
Wondering about false grip and how you can practice pulling yourself up on the rings? This week's video goes over the false grip, the toenail muscle up, and the false grip ring row.
One step closer to our muscle-up! This week - learn how to do a perfect dip, with a tight core, proper arm and shoulder position, and good depth.
The transition is where most people struggle in the muscle up. Learn how to properly execute the transition as well as drills you can use to build and strengthen this technique.
We spent the last 7 episodes learning all the elements that build into a muscle-up. After practicing and perfecting each one, it's time to put it together and do the entire movement.
