Nicole- Rounds or Reps?

I would like to see what others think is more important in this workout, more rounds or more pull-ups.

if you have one person who does 8 rounds, but a total of 30 pull-ups, and another who does 5 rounds, but does 130 pull-ups, who wins?

That was not a real example

Re: Nicole- Rounds or Reps?

Um, I think this question has been asked at least 5 times.


The workouts are quite literal though....

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
Run 400 meters
Max rep Pull-ups

Post number of pull-ups completed for each round to comments.


Basically, your score is the maximum amount of pullups you do total.

In fact it was asked the last time Nicole came up, just about two months ago:
http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=42348 (safe link)

The board search is especially effective when the workout has a name.

I have heard, and I like to think of the 400m run as a penalty for coming off the bar. Ideally one round would be great if you could continuously do pullups for 20 minutes without dropping

Re: Nicole- Rounds or Reps?

I like the 400m as a penalty idea.

Yeah I can always hear that jerk of a coach I had in middle school in my head yelling "Gimmie a lap!"

Makes sense to me. A buddy and I were having this conversation just the other day in trying to figure this out. My problem is, that from a work out standpoint to become more fit and not necessarily max out my score, I come off the bar once my pull-ups are no longer a continous motion. In other words if I come to a hang at all I consider that termination of a set and hit the ground for a run. If I was going for score only, I could always squeeze some more in before having to come off the bar.
