Can I get a muscle up PLEASE!!

Today Brendan coached me on muscle ups. This is the year that I will get them and be good at them. I have lost some strength lately - have no idea why- maybe because I have been coming down with a sickness ? Anyway - I got a few jumping muscle ups today and Brendan told me he was proud of me. That's really all I need to hear - him say he's proud of me :)
Afterwards he had a workout he wanted me to do and I did it half ass and ended up with a spiking fever, nausea, dizziness and crying. Yup - I'm sick alright :(

Ran 6 miles on treadmill 7:45 pace
45 minutes of muscle up practice/ got the form basically down
10 minutes of 10 pullups & 10 deep ring dipps (jumping)

Went home sick and took a nap.....hopefully I'll be better for my birthday!! Posted by Picasa

Lots of sleep and TLC! You'll get those muscle ups and when you do, you and Brendan can teach me!

Get well!

I feel ya on the MU's! We can do it! I'm finding that its a body awareness issues for me. Where I am in space and when to apply force with the momentum. I can't get that roll with my chest, that brings your head forward for the last push. I get passed the transition and wham I'm stuck!
HAPPY B-DAY!

Mishi,
never say never!!! I thought that and now I have 28 pull ups!!! PLUS I did some muscle ups (jumping) and I thought I could never do that either!!! Just keep trying! I'll train you when you come down for a visit and I'll teach you the kiping pull up okay ?

Jen,
I know what you mean. That's where I would get stuck....I managed to push out a few with good form now i know what it's supposed to feel like. Next time I will try it without the jump. I have been told that I am strong enough, I just need the technique down. You need to have at least 20 pullups and 15 deel ring dipps (at least that's what I have been told) and I have those so there's no reason why I can't do the damn thing. YOU TOO keep trying!!!
