Negative Muscle Ups for Better Transitions | Movement Fix Monday
When Dr. Debell was in Boston a couple months ago I had the pleasure to film a 4 part series with him on the topic of isometric exercises.
Ryan titled it the "Un-Sexy Video Series on Improving Positions Using Isometrics and Eccentrics." The idea for the series was developed after Ryan got in a few training sessions with me and was interested in the gymnastic strength work I was doing. It started with a discussion on how if people were less concerned with quantity and more about quality. These exercise while not as exciting as swinging from a pull-up bar can be beneficial to any athlete. Dr. Debell accurately put it....
"Getting weak people to kip up into a muscle up without ever having developed the strength (both of muscle and connective tissue) will lead to short term excitement but long term problems."
Check out the first video, as well as the full write up here on Ryan's website.
