Note:: i will add this-- that movement is very hard, as in so hard i think I would need a very long time to get my tail up those rings like that for even a very ugly one count. Major respect to Brad on this!
Thanks Adam, video does a poor job of size/scale comparison. Big guys who can do extreme pullups and muscleups impress me more than small skinny guys. Likewise, skinny guys who can press a lot of weight overhead get my attention. Good job Brad,
The most I ever got on the rings was 8 in a row. I really like the MU as a skill to know, but I think it's not so great as an exercise you do a ton of reps with as you would pull-ups. After a while of doing multiple sets of multiple reps, I tend to get a sore shoulder from all the internal rotation at the transition from pull-up to dip.
So now I just do enough to maintain the ability to do them.
