Hold the bottom position for 1 second (keeping tension – the barbell does NOT “rest” on the chest), and then as rapidly as possible, explode to the top position. At the top position, take one full breath, and repeat for the required number of repetitions. Following the Tempo, Athletes will complete 1 set of Maximum Repetition Bench Press with with either 50%, 75% or 100% of their bodyweight, and 1 set of Maximum Repetition Pull-ups, utilizing a Kip if desired.
