If you like bench pressing more than jogging on a treadmill, give this workout challenge a shot.

Bench Press & Chin-Up Challenge

  1. Add your bodyweight to a barbell for the bench press portion. Superset the bench press with chin-ups for 5 reps each.
  2. Do 8 total sets of each exercise. Rest when needed between the sets to maintain form.
  3. You have 10 minutes to complete the total 16 sets (8 sets of bench, 8 sets of chin-up). If you're unable to complete it in 10 minutes, stop and record your total number. Beat that number next time.

Note: Make sure you're proficient in both lifts. Since you'll experience fatigue, have a spotter present on the bench press.
