Death By Pullup:
With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.
Use as many sets each minute as needed.When you finally get to a round where you fail, start back at 1 clock goes for 20 min total.

Pull-ups, pregnant...[wmv]

Whats your PR for this one??

Appalachian Athlete said...

Evan, a simple question with a complicated answer: I always did a progression from strict pull-ups until I couldn't make the required reps for that minute, then kipping pull-ups until I couldn't make the reps for that minute, then jumping pull-ups until I couldn't make the reps for that minute... then collapse to the ground.

I'll have to look it up, but I think the switch to jumpers would come around 13-14 and it was never more than 2 more rounds of jumping before i was spent.

This is a good wod for gimpy ankles.

My gimpy ankle came about satuday afternoon...tim sprained his friday playing bball. ironic!? feeling much better today though, defintely game for some pull-ups. But Doug, if you are doing jumpers by the end, I am scared to think of what the rest of us will look like?! :/

Ev, first your broken toe and now the sore ankle. i need to stay away from you from now on!

Doug, I searched around a little bit, and jumpers are definitly the scale only if you want to keep it going towards the end of the workout. We'll see how it feels after the first 10 minutes. This is the same WOD that builds up momentum fast and just hammers you before you know what happened. -Nice

cant get enough of those pull ups!

I've made it to 15 min +8 in minute 16. All kipping.

Appalachian Athlete said...

O.K.! I'll take that challenge. My goal for tonight is 15+9.

I'm gonna regret saying that. This could be humiliating.

Anybody else want to go on the record with the goal of beating Evan's p.r.? who has the big max pull-up numbers?

Sure Doug- what fun would it all be without a little competition. I've max'd out at 31 or 32 before so I'm up to the challenge, but remember, each minute we're just repeating the amount that we already just did-a minute ago. This makes a great challenge, plus we dont have a mustache...

Jason is cursing me rignt now for finding some wi-fi. Virgin Gorda has been amazing, went to Tortola today and off to Anagada tomorrow. Everything has been great, miss the box and miss you all. Got three WOD's in so far. Today is a day off.

Hannah and Tim-sorry to hear about the bum ankles...what happened?
All-Strong work on the WOD's I checked the progress...

Good luck tonight on death by pull-ups.

Mike-we can do the Bear when I come back again...or AMARAP in 20 your choice :-)

oh and PS. who is annonymous from the 12th??? don't be a coward, reveal yourself.

Doug- every time I pour peroxide on my blisters and want to cry I end up cracking up thinking of you so seriously saying "Are you going to eat that"...completely disgusting, but thanks.
