I am using my total gym as a supplement to the CF Wods. I'm not very good at pull ups yet, so after I burn out on what I can do in the Wod, I have a total gym set up on the highest setting to finish whatever the workout is demanding. I think it is kind of like a gravitron pull up assist machine in that.

I am also doing anything like the rings stuff (dips, etc) to kind of work up to that. I'm also using it to help build up to handstand pushups, it has a bar that goes on the bottom that simulates that pretty good.

Seems good for scaling so far.
