Jumping pull ups - Standard?

What's the standard for jumping pull ups?

I have seen people actually jump from the floor to the bar but also seen people stand on bumpers and do the same thing!

Whats right or are both ok?

Re: Jumping pull ups - Standard?

The bar should be at a height that it hits the middle of your forearm when you are reaching past it, and then you lower yourself with your legs to fully straighten your arms below the bar on every rep. That's why you see people doing it from stacked plates or boxes. see 1:20 in the linked video, wfs.

That's the standard for the Filthy50 "Jumping Pullups", but if you're doing jumping pullups in other wods as a scaling for real pullups, then you probably would want to do more pullup and less jump, so in that case you're more likely to see jumping just enough to get past your sticking point. Or maybe you want to make it extra hard by doing a full height jump plus a full pullup, it just depends on what your training purpose is, right?
