|I don't care how terrible of a picture of me this is..I'm psyched.|
I can't begin to tell you how happy it made me. Yes I know..Lots of people do lots of muscle ups. I get it, in the grand scheme of things this is only one small step for man and a giant leap for no one BUT it is exciting to me none the less. I did it after our WOD for the day which makes me think it's better to be loose than trying to do it before anything.
Also during the WOD yesterday, I set a new PR i the Jerk getting 195! I failed at 200 but I think with just a little more practice I will be able to get it.
The lesson here is...STICK WITH IT. Also, what helped me is that I haven't tried a muscle up in more than a week after trying just about every day for a while. If you're having trouble nailing a skill movement (or the snatch), take some time off from it, let your muscles heal completely then go at it again in a few days or weeks. You might just find it to be a lot easier.
