''Weighted/Deadhang Pull-up Ascension Ladder & Gasshuku'' (09.20.2012)

“Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don't know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

''Weighted/Deadhang Pull-up Ascension Ladder'' (09.20.2012)
Every minute on the minute execute the prescribed number of Weighted/Deadhang pull-ups. On the first minute perform one Weighted Pull-up, on the second perform two Weighted Pull-ups, on the third minute perform three Weighted Pull-ups... Continue climbing up the ladder in this manner until the number of Pull-ups can not longer be completed in the one minute window of time allotted.
If you have a number for your 1-Rep maximum Weighted Pull-up use 50% of that load for this workout. If you are still scaling Pull-ups substitute in 1 x Deadhang Pull-up (modified as needed) for each Weighted Pull-up.
