Every minute, on the minute, for 30 minutes.

It would take me nearly an entire minute to do 5 pullups without a band, considering I am mostly doing them 1 at a time, so I used the mental floss tonight. I set up the next biggest band as a backup, but I am happy to report I didn't need it.

However, I did have to scale this down a bit to stick with the timing.

In addition to using the band for pullups, I did all my pushups on my knees, but with strict chest-to-deck and full arm extension.

After about 4 rounds, I scaled the reps to 3-6-15. In hindsight, I should've made myself do something like 3-10-15 until I started butting up against the time limit closely. I settled into a 3-6-12 pattern for the last 12-ish rounds.

I'm writing this in so much details because I'll be interested to see what I'm capable of pushing myself towards in future attempts...

  1. good scaling, takes brains to adjust mid-workout
