Today’s FE-Life Workout — “Ketchup on the Fence”

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

The Workout

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.

 

Modification Options

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.

 

Bonus Add-on

Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.

 

Note

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.
