We are working on the muscle up today. It is a high skill movement that can be frustrating to master but very rewarding when you do. It does not matter how well you can do them or how far from doing them you are. Everything will be scaled so we are all getting better and making progress. I love this movement because it requires a mix of strength, power and technique to pull off. The reason you are seeing this action a lot is because it requires a lot of repetition to master.
