I would like to eventually be able to. (Doubt I could do it right now.)
What did you do to learn how to do it and how long did it take before you could do one?
Also what were your other lifts like weight wise at the time?

So I never specifically trained for a muscle up but I can guess what helps for them. Gotta to be good on pullups. Not the half ROM pullups that 99% of people do, but you need to be able to have power to pull your body up as high as you can go. With bodyweight pullups I can pull the bar to my chest, and bodyweight chinups I can pull the bar to my upper stomach. I do mostly weighted pullups though.
And I also do weighted dips too. That should make it easy to push your body up once you do the pulling part.
I think at first, when learning, you can swing your body to kip a little to make it easier ala crossfit style. But as you get stronger, you don't need to swing.My vids

it's all about body placement and efficiency. start by learning how to do kipping pullups, the movement is done by pushing your chest out, feet back in a swinging manner, then close your body in whats called a hollow position and pull the bar to your hips with you legs straightened and abs flexed. work on ab strength and shoulder mobility for better technique.
