6 Pull-ups a minute challenge - Not Easy!!
Six pull-ups a minute, sounds easy right?
This challenge is tough! Each set of pull-ups is a different variation and challenges your grip, back and core strength. I did it yesterday and completed all 10 sets in 10 minutes.
The last 4 sets my grip got very tired and there's a few pull-up variations I could improve on.
One arm assisted pull-ups was where it got real tough but I did the reps the best I could.
Headbanger pull-ups was another set where I feel I can improve. The moment I relaxed between reps, the harder the next rep became. So you just have to keep going!
The final set was 5 seconds up and 5 second down. This was difficult and I had to stop and rest between the last few reps. That's okay, just be sure to finish the set.
I like this challenge because it's something you can add to your workout once or twice a week and see yourself improve in form and strength. Also, I enjoy the variations of pull-ups that challenge you in new ways.
I plan on doing this in the beginning of my workout once or twice a week. You could do this as a quick workout as well. It's enough to get the blood flowing and test you physically and mentally.
Try this workout out this week to see how strong you really are!!
