Default Butterfly MU? No False Grip?

I just saw the video on the crossfit main site from wednesday. this guy is doing "butterfly muscle ups." it's kinda cool that the elite rings can take that kind of force. my question though is that it doesn't look like he's using a false grip. it's hard to tell on my computer. is he not? if not, then how does he pull it off?

It's not a muscle-up. It is a front uprise.

Yet another example of CF trying to take something that has already been "invented" and re-name it to make it their own.

I don't know how anyone would hold a false grip through the bottom swing of that, nor what benefit a false grip would have in a move of such momentum out of the bottom...

Given Glassman is supposed to be a former gymnast I would think he would have more respect for it instead of trying to rename everything in gymnastics to his "standards."

Also, I hope that dude likes his rotator cuffs because he won't be having any in a few years if he keeps doing them like that. Not the greatest example of a good bail I would say. (Not that I can do better though mine used to suck badly).

I'm not sure what comment can be made on those two videos, but it's interesting to see the difference.


Anyway, if that's a front uprise, then it's definitely with more than 20% slop.

I would say it's more of an issue of CFHQ not knowing what a ring kip or a front uprise is. Remember "inverted burpee"? Really just a neck/floor kip with a jump press to HS.

Steve, Rog did comment on these on the mainpage but noted the reason he and his other gymnasts didn't do them last year at the Norcal Qualifiers was because the rings were set too low.

The standard CF kipping MU is already front uprise-ish with the horizontal pull, pike at hips and push to support.

Yep, I know we've discussed this before.

I can't believe they actually "named" it butterfly muscleups............

The kipping muscle-up (or whatever you'd like to call it) certainly does not require a false grip, and I'm not sure how anyone could "butterfly muscle-up" with one.
