Try Our 'Cliffhanger' Challenge to Build a Big Back & Scorch Calories

·1-min read

Our ‘Cliffhanger’ challenge won’t just add inches to your lats, it will also build real-world, functional strength and an impressive set of lungs, too. So, you'll be equal parts ‘show’ and ‘go’. What’s more, you don’t need any kit to get it done.

Station yourself below a pull-up bar (or anything else you can pull yourself up on) and get started on this mountainous test. Your goal? To complete 100 strict pull-ups. The catch? If you drop from the bar, perform 2 burpees, then for each subsequent drop add an additional two burpees (ie 2,4,6,8 etc…) Continue in this fashion until you hit 100 pull-ups.

1) Pull-up x 100

Grasp a pull-up bar with an overhand grip over shoulder width apart, lift your feet from the floor, hanging freely with straight arms. (A) Pull yourself up by flexing the elbows whilst pinching your shoulder blades together. When your chin passes the bar, (B) pause before lowering to the starting position.

2) Burpee x 2,4,6,8,10 etc..

Each time you drop from the bar squat down and place both hands on the floor between your feet. Jump your feet back into the top of a press-up and lower your chest to the ground (A). Straighten your arms and hop your feet forwards, before jumping into the air with hands on head (B) Repeat.
