Laurie looking strong on her chest-to-bar pull-up!
Today's workout tests not only our endurance and strength, but our mental toughness. There are no prescribed reps for the pull-ups, you just keep going until you fall off the bar. Not having a set number for a goal, you are forced to persevere, you must hang on for as long as you can.
This workout can be a great metaphor for life. How soon do you drop off the bar when things start to get a little difficult? Can you hang on for more rep? Can you keep calm and keep going? What happens when life gives you a curveball? Do you throw in the towel? NO! Of course you don't. You hang on and see if you can go a little longer. You are at least 20 times stronger than you think you are. See if you can get 20% more pull-ups at each round than you think you can. Hang on!
