I started off doing them with a band so that I could concentrate on strengthening the triceps in the transition. Eventually I got down to a micro band that only took off a couple of kg.

If you try muscle ups cross-fit style you'll probably dislocate an arm not to mention a nasty tendonitis type feeling in the elbow

I didn't hurt the outside of my elbow as is the case with most injuries, & I didn't hurt it from doing muscle ups.

For proper benefits, you should work on doing them slowly (too fast in vid above) and with a straight hollow body. Then gradually widen your grip. Then add an L throughout the rep. Eventually do them with straight arms i.e. iron cross press.

From what I've learnt, there's no point going for max reps with bad form. You should always be trying to make it as hard as possible by 1st) improving form, and 2nd) moving to the next harder variation. Then your strength and endurance will all shoot up dramatically.

For example: after progressing up to slow wide L reps at gymnastics last year, I was able to do a fairly easy slow shoulder-width rep with +30kg (on the first time testing). Had I'd continued with fast reps, I would barely have gotten anywhere.
