On any typically day it is believed we, “workout all day” or “only eat really healthy” or “probably don’t do/eat that” because of our profession. Well, those assumptions are wrong.

Muscle Ups and Cleans

muscle ups hips up jc andrew

Of The Lion Fitness Athletes came in and did a tremendous job with the cleans and muscle up workout yesterday. Those who are not able to do muscle ups, yet, were given the pull up scale instead.

As you start to get stronger with your pull up another key component of the muscle up is the swing to the top. Always remember to pull your hips to the rings. The higher your hips as you move up, the easier it will be for you to create a lever and bring your chest through and over the rings.

Notice in the picture how high the athlete in motion has his hips. Are his muscle up good? Yes, they are great. And due to his hips, they are effecient as well.

Enjoy your weekend, eat great and hydrate!
