It sounds like a good idea to me; although, I don't consider myself a veteran.

Does 5 months make me a veteran? Anyway, that's what I did the first time I saw a 100 pullup WOD, that and chuckle nervously at the thought of my first "Workout of the Week." I actually got to where it was sort of a jump with some kip to it. But I got through the workout and then the next time I get them all unassisted, though broken into many small sets, some overhand and some underhand grip. The thing I've found is that I don't want to go too close to complete failure on the first set or I'll pay for it later in the workout.

Of course you can do jumping pullups. If you try repeatedly to get over the bar and can't, add a little hop and next time aim to hop less.

I often have clients go to jumping pull-ups when they can't get 5 at a time, but then I will double the reps. Negatives are helpful as well. Note how much you jump, full squat, a little toe etc.

Just be cautious of how much eccentric loading you throw at folks. NEg's should not be swapped out 1-1 in a WOD IMO...big problems with rhabdo-esque issues. Time to switch to body rows or cut the numbers. With the jumpers just make sure there is about 120*< in the elbow at full extension to prevent bombouts.

Robb,

I am not sure I understand, and I need to do allot of jumping and negatives to get through the wods. Can you please elaborate?

Thanks

I think what he means is that just because someone can't do pullups, don't just give them an equivalent number of negatives... even that could be too much for them.
