-Rest 1:30-

8-10 Tempo Chin-Up (30X0)

-Rest 1:30 b/t Sets-

(Score is Weight on DBs)

GOAL: RPE 7 | This should be a TOUGH upper body push/pull combo, but leave some room to get heavier in weeks to come. The rest intervals and 3-second tempo are non-negotiables here. We want quality time under tension for maximum gains. Use a band on the chin-ups if you need it to hit at least eight reps with the appropriate tempo.
