My First Muscle Up Reaction After Finally Completing One

Check Out My First Ever Muscle Up Attempt

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my first ever muscle up attempt, as well as my first muscle up reaction after finally completing one.

Regardless of what it is, having a goal requires persistence.

[per·sist·ence]: firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

You also have to have the determination to fight through the frustration of failure.

[de·ter·mi·na·tion]: firmness of purpose; resoluteness.

Watch how many times I failed during my first day of trying muscle ups.

But when you are determined and persistently taking action towards completing your first muscle up, failure is not an option.

Of course you’ll fail a lot during your muscle up journey, and your hands will be blistered and in pain.

But just when you’re about to give up on getting your first muscle up, you’ll feel a spark of hope.

Then, with a little bit of encouragement, on your 20th or 200th attempt, you’ll complete your first ever muscle up.

Plus, once you get that first muscle up, they just get easier.

The same thing was true for my front lever transformation goal.

New York City Muscle Ups!

Make sure you stay tuned to the very end of the video to not only see my first muscle up reaction, but also to see some craziness on the streets of NYC.

If you’re like me, you’ll then have the confidence to start rocking muscle ups on Park Avenue in New York City, even after a steak dinner 😂.

Just be careful of the taxis driving by!

  1. To anyone who wants to get ripped some day. Copy and paste into google Max Muscle Method to find out more.

  2. Body position is so important with learning the MU. Leg movement, timing and momentum eventually start to come together and it becomes easy. Alot of people have the strength but not the technique for this exercise.

  3. if you dudes will need to get ripped quick without spending a one extra minute in the gym, then you really want to keep an eye on this online video SIXPP.COM

    In essence, we’re their servants who help them and who guard them from the public. (Leo) Oh gee, golly, goodie, Mr. Leo! Can I have my eyes gouged out, too? (Susan)

  5. Nice bruh!! My goal is one muscle up as well!! I’m better at the rings but I just can’t get that turn down! I’m 6’2 215. Keep grinding man. I heard clap pull-ups is a great way to build up…but you’re already there. You should do a burn out video…them 2 months later do another one, so we can see your progress

  6. I’m okay knowing I may never do a muscle up – unless there’s ever ‘vertically challenged short persons’ classes near me 😉

  7. haha congrats!!! i saw your instagram video of you doing them on park ave and i cracked up! hey any where’s a good spot for fitness! 🙂 🙂 congrats on reaching your goal – i knew it’d be no time at all!!

  8. Awesome, Brad! Could you do a video showing the technique necessary to do a MUSCLE UP?
    I,ve been trying to do one for some time with no sucess 🙁
    Yet, great work, as always!

  9. Impressive! And of course it helps having a female watching and cheeting for ya, but still impressive nonetheless.
