dead hang pullup/ kipping pullup ratio

Is there a ratio or a recomendation for dead hangs vs kipping pullups? For example if a wod calls for like 30 pullups per round in a wod, how many dead hangs would you recomend doing? I've seen where some people have said that you just have to tough it out and do the rx'd number whether you can kip or not, but this would cut down on the metcon affect of the wod since it takes a lot longer to do dh vs kipping. I'm not arguing the benefits of the kip for metcon reasons, but I just prefer to do deadhangs. Thanks.

Re: dead hang pullup/ kipping pullup ratio

Many people can do 2-3x as many kipping pullups as strict.

Going from max deadhangs and then doing them in a band or jumping is an awesome way to get trashed.

Quite a few people can eventually do those workouts with strict though.
