I while ago, I challenged myself to do some 'muscle ups' as they seem like a fantastic workout that pretty much covers the the whole of the upper body and core. I am still not quite there with them, I want to try and get to the upper position without swinging my legs too much.

To help myself along a bit and to achieve my muscle up goal I came across these nice little hand grips for my pull up bar:

As demonstrated by Instagram athlete Lanchana Green:

These will be a perfect addition to my home gym (which was brought to life on a tiny budget!)

They cost £25 from Amazon.

I am to use these daily, just to max out my pull up potential. I'll report back in few months to let you know how I get on 👊

In my experience, these make life harder not easier 😅

Along the same principles as TRX, they introduce instability into what's already a movement that is demanding on the core stabilizers, but I'm looking forward to your update!

I haven’t bought it yet 🙈 does TRX introduce instability?

Yes, and it's incredibly effective at making simple bodyweight movements much more challenging. I'm TRX-certified so let me know if you want me to share more about it.
