Death by Pullups for 11/9/2015

By November 8, 20152 Comments

We have not done a “death by” for a while.  This type of WOD is rather unique in its level of difficulty.  Similar to an EMOM, a “death by” progresses over time starting every minute on the minute.  Unlike an EMOM, a “death by” gets progressively more difficult, adding volume and eliminating rest, the longer you go.  The “death by” starts off slow, performing one a couple of reps through the first few minutes.  However, the challenge starts to kick in around minute 7-9 as the volume starts to add up.  Your “death by” score is the last minute where you successfully completed the corresponding number of reps within that minute.
