Muscle-ups (strict or kipping) require a certain amount of strength to perform well and often. There’s a level of mobility and strength involved to to stay injury-free. You should be able to have 3 strict chest-to-bar pullups, and 3 full range-of-motion dips before attempting any muscle-ups.

Or you can be this athlete.
