I'm a pullup whimp. As a result on some workouts like the 10/16/03 WOD (COACH THIS WAS ANOTHER FAVORITE - I hope you'll repeat:-) I don't think I'm getting the full intended cardio benefits. As a result I've decided to do the following modification in the future...
I plan on doing no more than 2 sets of pullups if I have to do multiple sets. I will not take more than a 30 sec. rest between sets. Any remaining pullups will be done on a Gravitron.
At the end of my WOD I will go back and get more regular pullups to complete the total number or some total close. I may add some of the KBs, Squats or whatever else is in the WOD while I complete the remainder.

Michael-

Using a gravitron is a great idea. if you can fit it into your WOD effectyively I would do PU's w/the gravitron as needed in the WOD andf just train singles, doubles etc. daily as part of a wrm up. The numbers will come as you up the volume.

OMG buddy you and me are a team. I can, after sleeping a proper 8 1/2 hours, and having exactly the right amount of nutrients and with a pretty girl watching...do 5 pull-ups. If I hop off of the bar and wait 2 minutes, have a beer and then another pretty girl shows up....do 4 more. It seems like I'll never never never get to that mythical 20 pull-up set. I just don't think it'll happen.
Sorry, that's all. I have no help for you!

CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THE RECON RON PULLUP PROGRAM. I went to the link and it didn't make complete sense to me.

As you look at the Recon Ron matrix it gives the week you're on at the top and lists the reps in five sets listed below the week. As you look at week 1 you will do five sets of pull's by doing reps of 6, 5, 5, 4, and 3 for a total of 23 reps. Follow that for two weeks by training 5 days doing the entire number of reps and one day doing 1/3 of the reps and having one day off. Each week is supposed to last for two weeks.
