    If you're gripping with front squats you are doing it all wrong. As the weight progresses, your grip isnt going to hold.

    Since you are determined to use poor form and use your forearms in a lower...

    It wont make any difference.

    You'll do an extra rep, but you'll use slightly less weight.

    If you are using periodized progression the impact is minimal.

    But since you have to do it your...

    I think it would be safer to work up to a heavy triple than try a 1RM after 3years and leaving the gym hurt.

    If you can do 5 sets of 5 weighted pullups, you can do a lot more than 3x10 BW pullups.

    I'm willing to bet you cant do 5x5 BW pullups.
