Motivation Monday


Considering the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this week’s Workout Wednesday post will be substituted for Motivation Monday.

You are a rockstar if you perform the Pull Up Challenge exercises today and Wednesday!

However, if  holiday travel plans interfere, you will still stay on track with your goals, if you perform these exercises today and one other day later this week when you have more time.


Are you performing the Pull Up Challenge?


It is Week 4!

Drill Set #2: Weeks 3 & 4
Mixed Grip Lat Pull-Down (one hand supinated & one hand pronated) 5 repetitions; 4 sets; 90-120 seconds rest
Negative Pull-Ups (with super resistance band) 5 repetitions; 4 sets; 90-120 seconds rest
Benchmark: Perform a Lat Pull-Down with at least 90% of body weight (weight * 0.90)

Fight to reach your benchmark by the end of this week…

New exercises start next week!

Just keep going!
