When I asked the same question early on in mail to the Crossfit folks, the response was to the effect of "don't worry about loads in the beginning - the important thing is the movement" (I'm pretty sure it was Lauren who answered). So my approach as I ramp up the WOD is to start with low weight and do the specified number of reps, even if it means breaking up the sets (always true with pullups - I'm currently doing the specified number unassisted by twos). My times are slow and my scores are low. Oh well. My target is to wipe myself out, while exercising safely.

Every time an exercise comes around again in the rotation, I try to up the load by 5# for at least some of the sets.
