Muscle-up Training Tutorial: The Missing Workout Manual for Your First Muscle-up

A muscle up training tutorial has always been something that I couldn’t find online. At least not something that would finally teach me how to do a proper bar muscle up. So finally this summer I got serious about training the muscle-up, among a few other exercises. This article is the result of my experience.

This is probably the most important thing to do in order to build muscle over time - you have to gradually increase the difficulty of your training. You see, if you don't change things up, if you don't make things harder, your body won't have a reason to adapt. Muscle growth is just an adaptation reaction to the external stress caused by the workout.

LL Cool J, on the photo above, works his ass off and consequently looks more than decent. One thing that can be learned about muscle

The program, called ’12 days of fitness’ initially began when the UK's leading fitness professional, Dax Moy, wanted to express his gratitude to his clients and offered them a gift a day for 12 consecutive days as his twist of the 12 Days of Christmas.

“Fitness professionals from around the globe have contributed hundreds of e-books, reports, videos, meal plans and other free gifts in their hope of making 2009 the year that anyone, regardless or their location, financial situation or past failures, can finally reach their fitness goals and make those New Year's Resolutions a reality once and for all.”

Perhaps the best part of the 12 Days of Fitness giveaway is that regardless of a persons health or fitness goals, there are going to be gifts specifically designed to help them achieve success.

"We've received gifts designed for busy mom's, elite athletes, bodybuilders, back pain sufferers and pretty much anyone else you can imagine covering everything from fat loss to rehabilitation and everything in between.

There literally will be something for everyone this year and all of it free, making it, without a doubt, one of the most important gifts anyone will receive this year. After all, what’s more important than health?”

100 Pushups

I have always wanted to be able to do 100 pushups. I have tried several routines. Some have worked better than others.

I tried this routine two times and it got me to around 50 pushups.

I have also tried the routine that Pavel Tsatsouline described in his book Beyond Bodybuilding. It involved doing multiple sets of pushups every day. Some days I got to as many as 500+ pushups a day.

The program originally called for two weeks of practice. After one week, my pushup performance went up by 10 to 60 pushups.

My current routine involves training every other day. I do as many fresh pushups as I can (started with 9), get up and rest just a little bit and then get on the floor and do another set with one less repetition. I repeat this until I reach a set of one. Then I rest for 2 minutes and do a max set of pushups.
