Do you know which joint in your body is the most mobile?
You use it for nearly everything.
And although it’s extremely mobile, it’s able to stay in place wonderfully.
I’ll spill the beans…your shoulder.
If you have been working out or are just starting to.
Your shoulders and especially developing them will become really important.
More, shoulders injuries are highly prevalent, especially when it comes to calisthenics workouts (source).
So you’ll need to be both careful and methodical.
That is if you are serious about becoming a beast on those bars.

Whether it’s the muscle up or typewriters.

My advice therfore is to do half the amount of reps if you are a beginner.
Both of these routines will be especially beneficial to your overall shoulder strength.
