    I do my Pullups but the Dip asks to have elbows higher and opposite so I do with a shoulder rotation in order to be above the bar. Now, my elbows touche the bar and then I have nothing in my hands.

    I do a kind of bad Tuck Pop Up. What can I do to improve that? I want a strict Muscle-Up.

    It's not a "typical" pull-up. In muscle up you get your whole torso above the bar.

    I am not gonna watch any videos but one tip I can give you is to use resistant band to make it easier to lift your body.

    You can wrap the band around your foot for instance.

    Never really messed around with muscle ups, but they do look fun.

    Re: Pull-up and variations mistakes

    I have no problem to lift my body. I do 40 pull-ups after 40 Dips each days and could do easily 80 pull-ups if I move faster without a complete extension but I do 1 seconds to lift up and 2 seconds to lift down. I push air when I lift up and omoplate closer. I use the same way with dumbbells.

    Some gyms have a pulls up fitness machine. This is similar to the Power Tower with a pad under the knees which one pushes you up. I think it is much better. My problem is with a strict muscle-up between the Pull-up and Dip. I do a transition but my elbows touch the bar.

    Re: Pull-up and variations mistakes

    I don't understand how are you performing the exercises if your elbows hit the bar? Makes no sense.

    When you pull yourself up you should have at least some backward lean if you do that "kipping" thing.
