Unbroken sets. Increase loading across as many sets as possible. Rest 1:30 between sets. Use banded strict pull-ups if you cannot perform at least 2 sets x 5 pull-ups in a row. If you can do at least 1-3 strict pull-ups, then start every set off with 1-3 pull-ups and then finish with 5 banded pull-ups. Today’s workout reduces intensity and helps focus on one of our weakest strengths: strict upper body pulling. It also gives your body a nice break from intensity and volume. Tomorrow’s workout includes handstand walks and high box jumps, so enjoy a slower pace today. We will keep the warm-up simple and make sure we have enough time to include the accessory and stretching in today’s class
