At home, we have a mantra for my kids.  Whenever they struggle with things like homework, sports, reading, or building, I always ask the same question: “How do we get good at things?”  They respond, “KEEP PRACTICING.”

I love this mantra because it instills the idea in them that there is (i) value in the work; it teaches us discipline, builds character and demonstrates the value of patience/persistence; and (ii) a relationship between effort and reward; the greater our effort, the greater the reward.

Accordingly, you may have noticed that we have been focusing on the components of several high-skill movements that many of us struggle with (like C&J, Snatch, Handstand Push Ups, and Muscle Ups).  Those of you who have been putting in the work will certainly see progress in these areas.  Still, though, I hear a lot of people who claim to want to improve their muscle ups but I never see these people practicing.  So, here is a little bit of truth you already know: YOU MUST PRACTICE YOUR MUSCLE UPS TO IMPROVE YOUR MUSCLE UPS.
