Monday Workout: Pull-up Work, 5 Rounds



Part 1: Pull-up Work, Week 3 Day 1:

Eccentric (0-4 reps)

  • 4 Sets: 5 x Eccentric Pull-up at BW (bodyweight) + 2.5%, rest 60 seconds between sets

*Each eccentric pull-up is done at a 5 second descent, with 5 second break between reps. Assist using partner! If you cannot maintain a 5 second descent, either use a partner or lessen the number of reps.  If possible, add 2.5% of your bodyweight using weights. (i.e. if you weight 150, add 3-4 pounds.)

Volume (5-12 reps)

  • OTM 7: 35% of Max Rep Set + 1

*Add 1 rep to your normal 35% set, an perform this number of strict pull-ups on the minute for 7 minutes

Weighted (12+ reps)

  • 6 Sets: Max Reps (-2) @ BW+ 7.5%, rest 90 seconds between sets

*The (-2) means stay 2 reps shy of failure – shoot for 5+ reps each set but do not go to failure each round.


Level 1

4 Rounds for Time:

  • Hang Power Clean x 10
  • Burpee x 10

Level 2

5 Rounds for Time:

  • Power Clean (115/85) x 10
  • Burpee over the bar x 10

*2 footed take-off and landing on burpees.  Be careful about dropping bars from shoulder if class is large, as bars can bounce.


  • Tabata Plank (add weight if possible) – 8 rounds of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off
