Okay, last time I talked about OPERATION SIERRA OSCAR (Shirt Off) it was still raining out and even, in some places like the high Sierra, snowing! However, now there’s no excuse – the sun is out and it’s burning bright – time to man-up and pull off that shirt, if for no other reason than to get your 15 minutes a day of recommended Vitamin D (from sunshine – yes, even doctors recommend you get some sun).

The question you need to ask yourself is are you ready to bare your upper torso (men and women) to the world…or at least to your closest friends or maybe just to yourself…whatever the reason – succeeding at OPERATION SIERRA OSCAR is NOT hard – it just requires 10 minutes of work a day – seriously – 10 minutes – can you do it? Man-up and try!

Here’s the drill – pushups and pull-ups for ten minutes – that’s it. You don’t need the Perfect branded products to accomplish this mission – it’ll just take longer to get the results! The workout is simple:

1. Start timer as you conduct a set of pushups to failure
2. Immediately after you finish your pushups do one set of pull-ups to failure
3. Repeat without stop until your timer clicks to 10 minutes.

That’s it – so let me know it goes. Oh yeah, you should take a picture of yourself because after ten workouts you’re gonna be surprised at how much your body has changed and how much more often you’ll be taking your shirt off!

Been meaning to ask a question about this one. I am in pretty good shape but I doubt I could go 10 minutes straight of pushups and chins to failure. How do you build up the tolerance to be able to do that workout? Sounds pretty brutal.

Thad, you're just pushing and pulling to the point of failure. Nobody said it was easy. The beauty is in its simplicity.
