2 Strict Pull-ups
3 Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups
Heavy Pull-up day! We know a lot of people who don’t have Pull-ups get a little disheartened when they see workouts like this, but this is your opportunity to spend a whole session dedicated to practicing this movement. This is how you get better! We have scaling to meet you where you are and find something that is going to help you get closer to being stronger at pulling. It might be strict Pull-ups, negatives, Ring Rows, Jumping Pull-ups, etc.
For today, try to keep the movement as strict as possible, avoid too much kipping, we won’t use it as a scale today. We chose this rep scheme so that you can use the sets as a stepping stone to find your 2-rep max. We want each set to still be as heavy as possible, but those last three sets of 2 are where the focus should be.
You can hold dumbbells between your feet, snag one of our weight belts, or use Coach Billy’s weight vest if you ask reallllllly nicely.
