    That's called a pullup...you're just doing it in pulldown format. Less bicep involvement than chin ups and less lat involvement than wide grip.

    If it were me I'd honestly shoot for 3 plates. I'd be careful not to push it too hard though. I'd warm up really well and at least get a single and it if it doesn't feel quite right, just stick with...
