Ben went for option B today, deciding to forgo pull ups for muscle ups. Here he is looking super solid in the bottom of his dip. This position is really important to be tight and controlled, not allowing your elbows to fight out and your body to move in different directions. It can actually be looked at as the "catch" position of the muscle up or maybe even the land. Similar to receiving the bar in a snatch or clean, the objective in this position is to be tight, controlled and positioned in the particular way that will allow for the proper finish of the movement. Adam expresses this same idea when receiving the power clean. Workout:
