Max Rep Percentage Based Pull-up Program?

A few years ago I stumbled across a post referencing a pull-up program that worked off of your amount of max reps.

The program is to establish a max effort of total reps then use a different percentage of that number on different days of the week over the course of a few weeks.

For example,

Monday - 20% of max reps
Tuesday - 60%
Wednesday - 40%
..

The issue is that I can not remember the percentages per day and after extensive googling and board trolling I cannot find the article.

If memory serves it was a program used by or came from the Army and was named Johnny Pull-up or something of the like.

Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? I would like to visit this again as I remember it looked like a sensible and straight forward template.

Where you thinking of the Armstrong program?

There is also the Recon Ron program.

Don't think either quite fit the description though.

How about the Pavel (WFS) "Fighter Pullup" program?

This is the one that was hailed as the holy grail when I was in.
Everyone asked if I did that program, or if I would recommend it. I simply said When in fact I didn't do a whole lot of pull-ups in my workouts, I simply lifted heavy weight a lot. It wasn't what Marines wanted to hear

Until you manage to find it (fingers crossed after all your searching) why don't you just run what you've written:

Week one
Monday 20%
Wednesday 60%
Friday 40%

Week two
Monday 25%
Wednesday 65%
Friday 45%

Week Three
Monday 30%
Wednesday 70%
Friday 50%

Week four - retest

You can experiment with sets used.
