Clarrification: So I need to complete 1 pull up within the first min, then 2 pull ups within the second min, then 3 pull ups within the 3 min..so essentially a min a pull up? Since i’m using the body row..i’ll have to do 2x for every min?
PS: No cutouts and no vocal recordings please 😛
You’ll do one pull-up between minute zero and minute one, two pull-ups between minute one and minute two, three pull-ups between minute two and minute three, etc. In your case, substitute 2x bodyrow. This workout is slow and easy for the first seven minutes, or so, and then things get interesting in a hurry.
10 minutes + 5 (no improvement)
You got through nine rounds and nine pull-ups last time—so, you improved by six pull-ups (with a shoulder injury between then and now).
Neil: 100 body rows in like 7-10 min (I forgot to look at the clock) and I prolly did’t do the prescribed work out as I’m supposed to.
I reached 8 pull-ups in a minute. In round 9 I managed 6 pull-ups in a minute. This workout got hard fast. Thanks for getting me on camera Melody. Jeff

Fine. Be that way. But you still improved. Stop being difficult, 4-11.
