  • 4 weeks of workouts, 4 days per week

Step by step guidance for optimal results

Strict muscle-ups are hard. Depending on where you are starting from, it may take months to build the strength to achieve this skill.

Put your time and effort into a program that works. Our step-by-step progressions will help you put together the pieces.


“The strict muscle up program has done wonders for my gymnastics (my biggest training weakness). I’m always able to squeeze the exercises in after my training or knock out a few of them together on my rest days.”
