The title may be reminiscent of a bad Sylvester Stallone movie, but this challenge is no joke. Picture yourself dangling from a cliff and your only chance for survival is to pull yourself up repeatedly without letting go.
That's the crux of this challenge, just keep pulling until your lats curse your name and your biceps go on strike. As soon as both hands leave the bar, the challenge is over. You're through. This challenge is great for testing your grip strength and breaking through the lactic acid threshold.
Sounds a lot like the failure test, doesn't it? I'm about to drop a wrench in the gears: You can do no more than 10 reps in a row with any given grip.
Plan on starting with a prone grip? Great, you have 10 reps until you have to flip to supinated or switch over to the neutral handles. The grips are up to you, pick two and pull.
If you can't go over 10 reps in a row at a given grip, it doesn't mean that you have to do exactly 10 reps with that grip. You can switch grips at any point before the 10-rep limit. Get more than 20 reps total before letting go and you can pat yourself on the back (if you can).
