Anyone have experience with both? Curious what the opinions are. Armstrong takes you to failure where as the Recon Ron doesn't. I personally like the idea of the Recon Ron plan since it still allows me to train pull ups on the WOD without having "fried" myself earlier with the Armstrong. Any thoughts?

I totally agree with you. I was thinking about this last night, coincidentally. If I followed Armstrong to a T (I don't), I would be averaging over 50 pull-ups/day at my current ability. This would leave absolutely nothing left for pull-ups in the WOD. I think that following Recon Ron or performing pull-ups in the warm up (i.e. 3 sets of 10) finds a good balance point between necessary practice and overtraining.
