I am nearing the end of a 6-week training cycle. This cycle has been all about getting back to a satisfactory level after having suffered from medial epicondylitis, which restricted me from doing any bent arm strength work for a little over half a year.
After only 5 weeks of getting back into bent arm strength work, I shattered my previous personal best in Muscle Ups.
- 39 muscle ups in 20 minutes
- 18 muscle ups in 8 minute deload session
- 42 muscle ups in 20 minutes
- 23 muscle ups in 8-minute deload session (recorded in the video above)
I am pretty satisfied with these results – though I am definitely not back at the same strength level I used to be. I am still weaker in other pulling and pushing patterns. How is that possible? Well, I think it has to do with the lifestyle changes I have made. I have started doing intermittent fasting and have drastically reduced my meat intake.
Give it a try and tell me how many you can do!
