Anyone like to weigh in on what constitutes a max rep set of pull-ups? Or of any other exercise for that matter. I consider two possibilities: 1. Round ends when consecutive reps stop for more than a slight pause at end of a rep. 2. Round ends when you drop off bar (or set bar down if applied to some type of lift), but you can rest while hanging, or with bar racked. Just curious what standards people have?

For pull ups, the round ends when you drop off the bar.

For other exercises its not as clear to me. Except on Lynne(bench press). You cant really rest on bench, but with the bar racked on something like thrusters, cleans, etc, I'm not so sure.

I would think that max reps means 'max reps'. Being in an elevated position for the pull-ups, it makes sense to me that reps end when you drop. If it were the other way around, I think there would be an indication in the explanation of the workout itself that reps stop when you pause for a certain length of time. I am reminded of a certain workout with clean&jerk where it says rest can be taken overhead, in the rack position, or at the hang position. The cleans must be touch and go. Any pause at the floor constitutes the termination of the round.
