Great for Men AND Women!
This super simple workout may not be complicated, but it is super tough (but doable for everyone) and extremely effective. If you want to build strength and improve your training, this is an awesome way to do it.

10 Negative Pull Ups
10 Negative Push Ups
10 Rounds – 100 total of each!

The negative (or eccentric) movement increases strength fast and allows you to do exercises many people can’t do otherwise. Even if your negatives are fast because you don’t have the strength to resist your weight, you still can benefit from this training. Give it a try!
