The muscle-up is a movement that begins from the hang, passes through portions of a pull-up and a dip, then finishes in a supported position with arms extended. Many athletes experience the strict bar muscle-up as more challenging than its counterpart on the rings. This is because the pull-up bar creates a fixed object the athlete must navigate around. Pulling the torso high enough and having the patience to delay the transition to the dip is critical to the success of the movement.
