MTNTOUGH Pullup Progression
Beginner: Less than 1 Pull - Up, Follow the Chart with Ascending Pull-Up, 120 Seconds Rest Between Sets
If you can do 1 strict pullup or less, descending training will be most effective for you. It will develop your muscles and raise your endurance and strength. Instead of pulling yourself up, stand on a stool and hang yourself on the horizontal pullup bar (with your chin just above it).
Then get off the stool and descend slowly until your hands are straight. Repeat.
You have to descend as slowly as possible. You will achieve best results when descending from the stool until your arms are straight. It should take you about 3 seconds to do a full descend

OH Reverse Lunge: B:20 I:30 E:50
Have your first half mile paced appropriately, because when you get back, you’ll move right in squat jumps, reverse lunges and burpees. The more even your half mile splits are to each other, the better! How close can you get them? Or can you beat your first half mile?
Running Substitute for .5 mile if you are stuck indoors and can’t run... (we encourage you to run but sometimes we know you can’t)
1:00 max jumping jacks
1:00 max mountain climbers
1:00 max high knees
1:00 max butt kicks
When you start the lateral lunges, be sure to go slow and assure proper form. We don’t want you to compromise your positioning and risk injury (check the form video out!). The butt kicks might feel slightly elementary to you, but they are worth it! Be sure you’re focusing on getting heel to butt.
If you need to, modify your pushups in order to complete, do so.
