The CrossFit Games Open Competition is upon us again. This weekend it was "16.3" with power snatches and bar muscle-ups. The crux of this WOD was the Bar Muscle-Up, which basically involves a powerful kipping pull-up that brings you high enough over the bar that you're able to perform a dip up to a supported position above the bar. In order to do this, you need to be able to create "global extension" (the entire body is extended) at the bottom of the rep and quickly snap your body into "global flexion" (the entire body is flexed). These pictures of Mike are a great illustration of the concept.
