How Beneficial Are Muscle-Ups?

by Brandon

Many people are enamored with the muscle-up and feel as if it is indeed the best bodyweight exercise when it comes to building strength and adding size but pro athlete trainer and physical therapist Jeff Cavaliere would disagree. Believing that the injury risks of this particular excercise outweigh the possible rewards, due to the amount of stress it puts on your joints. And suggest that those who do incorporate muscle-ups into their workout routines take the health of their shoulder and elbow joints into consideration, as constantly performing muscle-ups can deteriorate these joints over time. Leading to injuries with your medial elbow  and rotator cuff. While you might think it is an exceptionally beneficial exercise just remember that science doesn’t lie. Check out the video below to see a complete breakdown as to why you should consider removing the muscle -up from your regular routine!
