I love your dedication for getting your workout right (I'm sure you'll get much more out of it if it's done correctly). I'm often too happy to cut corners but now I feel that I'd just be cheating myself and the other SFers here.
As for the pullups issue, after a few I'm not really able to get the height that I think's needed so I sub in some neutral grip ones which give my shoulders a bit of a break.
I'm sure you'll easily be sub 5mins for D3, but I guess only you'll know if you're happy with the form of your workouts.
Best of luck.
