Thursday will be a pull-up-centric named workout, “Nicole.” The workout is named after one of the original Nasty Girls and current Director of Training, Nicole Carroll. It’s a weird one – do you want more rounds or bigger sets, which will lead to less rounds?
The answer, like all good things, is – it depends. Are you good at pullups? I would try to either go as big as possible or pick a big number for you – 10, 15, 20…more…and do them unbroken. Do you have a smaller number? If you have 5 or less, you will likely spend a great deal of the workout running.
Either is ok. Ideally you will do both – big sets and run fast. If you are doing huge, PR type sets, you will likely be running slowly, moving the blood out of your arms. For this workout and this week, I would focus on that big pullup number. Let’s see if we can get any PRs!!!
And if you have a bar that hangs in a door, please video when you rip that sucker off the wall and flop like an NBA player (sports reference – a little late).
