False Grip

The false grip is used for moves that take you from below the rings to above the rings, such as the muscle-up (detailed illustration of this move coming later this week). Here are some pointers for proper positioning with the false grip:
  • Place the rings further into your palms than you did with the neutral grip — around mid-palm level.
  • Wrap your fingers around the rings and wrap your thumbs around your knuckles.
  • Push down into the rings, creating some pressure.
  • Your wrists should be bent, but not so far that your wrist is inside the rings.
  • When performing the muscle-up in particular, make sure to maintain the false grip, with the rings turned out, throughout the movement — from below the rings, all the way to the above-the-rings position.
