"Death by Pull-Ups" (20 minute minimum*)

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.  Use as many sets each minute as needed.

*We took this idea from Iron Major CrossFit.  If you can no longer "advance" (i.e. do that minute's worth of pullups), you drop by 5 and do the rest of the workout at that number to a minum of 20 mins.  Example: Cadet "X" does 8 full minutes, but can't get all 9 in the 9th minute.  For Minutes 10-20 he does 4 every minute.

Did rounds 1 through 13 as rx'd, and then seven rounds of 10 reps. Frustrating not being able to do the whole thing as rx'd, but a big improvement in being able to do 161 pullups in one WOD.

17 rounds as Rx'd with 13 during my 18th round. Only got 9 during round 19 and 10 during round 20. I guess you could say I fizzled.

185 total pull-ups

Great to see people working it this morning. Don't forget to sign up for the games. Let me know if you have questions.

13 rounds as rx'd, then my arms fell off and my pull-ups decreased (5, 8, 4 (hand broke open), 7, then 8 w/ green band, 8 w/ GB, 8 w/ GB). 115 pull-ups as rx'd and 24 with the green band.

I don't think I will be able to move my arms in the morning - thanks B&G CF it was awesome!

Really needed to make the heart pump this morning after a week off, so made up a WOD from last week:
500m row
25x situps
10x med ball cleans

18 rounds + 13 + 13

my grip became the limiting factor.

13 rounds as Rx'd, 8, then 8's band-assisted on last 6 rounds. Good WOD. I won't be able to extend my arms for the rest of the week.

13 rounds as Rx'd
then 8 for the last 7 rounds
I had to tape up my hands after about 9 rounds. I think I was just a few pullups away from ripping off a callous
