Never thought about jumping pull-ups until the recent WOD. Would it be a good way to up pull-up volume. It occured to me that I've never done 50 negatives in 7 minutes time, so that's a very significant increase in volume.

Any thoughts?


Would you guys recommend using jumping pull-ups to get the required # of pull-ups in the WOD?

Yes. That is what they taught me to do when I was at crossfit HQ. Basically, I do whatever I need to get the required pullups and I vary what I do - sometimes I do sets of regular kipping ones, sometimes I do regular and then switch to jumping, other times I use the gravitron or stand on a chair and just do negatives. You can use therabands as well. What I learned at HQ is that by varying how you get those pull ups, you will tax more of your body through different means and your strength/endurance/etc will increase faster.

i would imagine jumping pullups would actually make it more difficult to achieve high numbers of pullups due to the increased o2 demand by,and lactic acid production in, the glutes/quads/calves.
