Good evening, docs

A pretty unimportant question, but today I had a thought that got me curious and couldn't find any good answers searching myself. Part of my training today was doing pull ups and as usual I warmed up by starting with a bodyweight single. Then a double, then a triple, then a quadruple. Then I did my working sets of five reps, and today that was just two sets. Then I wondered, did I just do two sets of five, or did I do 20 reps?

This is just a theoretical question, and I don't expect there to be high quality studies on the subject, nor would any high quality studies change the way I do my pull ups currently. Just interested in your thoughts on it. Basically, is a rep a rep? Or does doing them in sets change things? They weight is the same, the work done is the same, the volume is the same. But obviously, the last reps on a set are much harder. Is my workout above equivalent to four sets of five (assuming being warmed up first)?

Thanks in advance
