100 Pull-Ups

Yesterday morning’s workout was the one called “Angie”: 100 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats. Our coach, Allison, said we could mix them up, though it seems the usual way to do this workout is to do all 100 of each, in order.
This took me 24:32. I did the pull-ups and push-ups both in sets of 10, then later in sets of 5. I’m proud to say I didn’t use the rubberband for the pull-ups at all, but did them all by kipping. I never liked that rubberband assistance and now I feel I’ve proved my point that I don’t need it any more. Could using it have speeded up my time? It seems the answer should be yes, but based on experience, I doubt that. The rubberband only helps me do pull-ups faster while I’m fresh. Once I’m fatigued, it’s no faster than kipping. I can pull up in the rubberband two at a time when I’m tired or I can kip five at a time. Just say no to rubberbands!
