Reposting from a WOD comments board (I should have put it here first)

Is it better to do these in sets of two so that you are forced to go to the bottom and then back up again? It's seems to me that this is better pull up training than going up once from a static position (such as standing on a box) and then coming down and dismounting the bar. Any thoughts here?

Thanks Iron Duke (jfd4)

It should be a full ROM motion with the weights. I usually jump to the bar (1-2 inches) with the weights on (I put plates in my back pack) until it gets too heavy, then I use a stool to reach and tuck my legs to dead hang. Is there a reason why you have to go all the way up on count 1 before you can come down? Can you grab the bar, tuck your knees so that you dead hang and then do the pullup?

I can, but for some reason the second rep feels more "real" to me even accounting for the fact that, you know, it's the second one so it's probably going to be harder to do. It was the video that really put me over-saw them doing multi-rep weighted pull ups.

Another odd ball thing is that I can do two 55#, but fail on 60, and then was able to do 55# again immediately after the failure. 55 was a pr for me, but my previous progressions started at 25 and walked up in 5# increments. I maxed at 45 on the 5th attempt.

This round I started at 45# and did double reps going up to 55# in three rounds. Next time I'll start at 55# singles and see where I max.
