5 rounds of:
- Max reps pulls ups *choose banded, kipping, ring rows, inverted rows...etc
- Max reps DB Bench press
Max reps = as many as you can do to almost failure. Record your number and see if you can keep a close number each round. Tips- don't go too light on your DB weight. Pick a weight you can get around 12-14 first round
Try to go immediately from pulls ups to your DB press with as little rest as possible.
