My recommended FE-Life workout today is very basic, but very difficult. You will need a pull-up bar, and a certain amount of faith in yourself.
- Target Muscles: upper body
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 9
- Workout Time: 20 minutes
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Do 100 pull-ups as expediently as you can while still maintaining good form. You can vary the types—overhand, underhand, close-grip, wide-grip, etc. Assisted pull-ups are fine, as most cannot do 100 dead hangs or kips. Try, however, to do as many unassisted reps as is possible.
To make the workout harder, try wearing a weighted vest. To make it easier, do sets of two to four unassisted reps, immediately followed by four to six assisted reps—then rest and repeat.
Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.
I post a new workout each day of the week. Clearly, “rest days” are prudent in anyone’s workout schedule. My advice is to select four or five of the workouts I recommend in a week, and do them over four or five days—one workout per day; rest on the other days. I always list the target muscles each routine calls upon. It would be wise to choose workouts that address the entire body over a given week.
