I'm looking for get started with hitting weighted pull-ups hard. The best way to seamlessly incorporate them in my current routine would be 3 times a week. My current routine has a deload every fourth week, so a routine where I work hard for 3 weeks, and deload on the fourth would integrate best.

I read about a routine in BB which looks somewhat like this:

-Train 3 times a week. You do sets of 5,4,3,2,1 reps (15 reps total). You go up by 5-10 pounds between sets. Every training session, you add 5 pounds to each set. After 2 weeks (about 6 sessions), my top single should be equal to my max. So I should work up to a new max on the 3rd week. Deload on the fourth week. Fifth week is the exact same thing all over again, but a little heavier I suppose.

Does this seem like a sensible routine? I considered ladders, but because ladders deload weekly, it wouldn't work too well in my routine I think. Also, ladders seem to bias towards volume and KB programming, but my weight belt lets me get 5 lb increments, so I figured a more barbell-oriented routine would be best?

Any other ideas/thoughts? Thanks!
