Take on your Men’s Fitness workout of the week, a new 52-part series to keep you inspired and challenged for 2015. We’ll post a new workout every Monday and for an added incentive, we’ll take on the workout too so you can see how your best time compares with a member of the MF team.

Workout of the Week #31

Beat the clock pull-ups: On minute one do two pull-ups, on minute two do four pull-ups, etc until failure

How to do the workout:
Hog a pull-up bar and start a timer. At the start of every minute, do pull-ups, using the rest of the minute to rest. On the first minute do two pull-ups, on the second do four pull-ups and repeat. Stop when you can’t complete all the required pull-ups within that minute and note down how far you get. Try and beat that number on your next go.

Watch the video, take on the challenge and post your best score in the comments section below.

MF’s par time: 10 pull-ups/five min
