When Motivation is About as Present as Oxygen on the Moon

There will be days—sometimes for no reason in particular, when you have absolutely no motivation to even work on your goal in the slightest.  I’m meaning the kind when you’re so unmotivated it’s like saying you don’t have it at this point would be somewhat like saying it’s a little cool for short pants out on the Yukon Tundra in the middle of January.

You will need access to a pull-up bar, or one that fits over your door. They run for about $40-$50 on Amazon or elsewhere.

The way these work is each set is considered one round. So you’d do one of each, rest, if you want, then do two of each, rest, then three of each–increasing by one rep with each set.

All exercises start at 1 rep unless you go for the other options.
