Default Killer Pull-ups

I did this crazy pull-up workout with a buddy of mine yesterday that was super intense. Basically we did 10 sets of pull-ups with very short rest periods in between. I would do a set then he would do a set immediately after I did mine, then i would do another sets after he did his. The rest periods were only about 15-20 secs between each set we performed. I started with 10 reps and tried to complete 10 sets of 10 with 15-20 seconds of rest, but fell short of that.
It went like this:
1st set x 10 reps rest 15-20 seconds
2nd set x 10 reps rest 15-20 seconds
3rd set x 10 reps rest 15-20 seconds
4th set x 9 reps rest 15-20 seconds
5th set x 9 reps rest 15-20 seconds
6th set x 8 reps rest 15-20 seconds
7th set x 8 reps rest 15-20 seconds
8th set x 7 reps rest 15-20 seconds
9th set x 7 reps rest 15-20 seconds
10th set x 6 reps rest 15-20 seconds

I've actually completed 10 sets of 10 reps before, but the rest periods were a full 30 secs between each set. Its a good change from heavy weighted pull-ups.
