Equipment

If you’re serious about building mass, then you’re going to want a workout finisher that pushes you to your limit. That’s why we enlisted Prince Brathwaite, CEO and founder of Trooper Fitness in New York City, to show us one of his favorite finishers, the Pullup-dip Pyramid. This workout will put your stamina and endurance to the test with only a pullup bar.

Directions

Perform 10 pullups followed by 10 dips, then 9 pullups followed by 9 dips. Continue doing sets with one less rep until you reach one rep for both dips and pullups. If you feel that starting at 10 reps is too difficult, start at a smaller number, like 7. Conversely, if you want an even bigger challenge, try starting at a higher number, like 15.
