Holy shit man, one armed muscle ups? How is that technically possible even with the assistance? Well, I guess it is possible if you're doing it. Respect 8)

chipset:  there are a lot of stabilizer muscles firing just to balance over the bar and I'm feeling lucky I did 25% of my bodyweight but will try for more in 2 days.  Who knows, maybe the extra stimulus will help me get a real one with both hands. Plus, I'm going to start doing weighted pullups from now on as well.  Baby steps...


Body weight: 203, just can't wait to say under 200...

skip 5:00
5 rounds: handstand 30sec, FS 5x135#, pullup 5x+10#
row 5 rounds: sprint 60sec, rest 30sec; total 1064m
swim one lap
scuba while cleaning pool

Front squats were to absolute bottom and great form.
Pullups felt great, and I think I could have done 5x5 with more, will add next time.
Plus, these were real pullups, hands facing away, which I almost never do.
Usually I do neutral grip or almost palms facing me so I feel pretty good about this.
The pool needs a new light, scuba is great for working on those little things, plus I miss the ocean, so a bit of fun in the sun. Will order new pool light this week.  Then more swimming and free diving at night while cooler.

3 rounds of: skip 2:00 and 45# weighted (4 pullups, 8 pushups, 12 squats); 17:30
Then row 500m 2:50
and swim 3 laps

Yesterday biked to work in the blistering heat ~10:00 each way

I think I would like to work up to 5x5 pullup+45# before adding anymore. 
I'm also thinking about getting a weight vest soon because hanging all that weight hurts my waist a little; trying to imagine 100#

How are you hanging the weight around your waist?  Common methods are to attach a rope/chain to a leather weightlifting belt, hold a dumbbell between the ankles, or to wrap a towel around a heavy chain and use some caribeaners. (sp?)  If you are just using a rope, that'll get to be painful.  Nice work on doing 4 reps at that weight.

Weighted pullup attatchment methods:

I've tried holding the dumbell between the ankles and that hurts my ankles/legs.  I found this method very difficult to kip but easy to release as long as you don't fall onto it and trip when you're done.  Can't imagine holding more than 25# like that though.

I have tried a 1/2" rope on 25#+ and that caused some skin rashes or pinch induced bruising.

For 35# to 70# I have used a 2" wide thick cotton moving strap doubled up and it works pretty good. I like to tie the weight tightly to the backside up high as it will drop a bit with use and makes you back heavy.  Later, I will try to tie 25# in front and 25# in back sometime just to see how it feels for balance and kipping.

I have also tried a pullup/dip belt - 4"+ leather with chain and although I like them for the comfort, I don't like the weight hanging between my legs, also dangerous on kipping unless you're into nut butter.  Also, my current gym doesn't have one and I hadn't convinced myself that I needed to purchase my own yet.

Yesterday I ordered the 50 lb. Men's Short Narrow Weighted Vest from WeightVest.com and can later add 25# pack to it as well as hanging more from my waist.  Excited to let you all know how it works next week after reading all of the great testimonials.

That's why I only do weighted pull-ups strict.

Day of 3s:
3 rounds: skip 1:00 and mu-55#x3 (last set was single followed by almost x3, try -50# next week)
3 short handstands with some minor rom hspu
3 dips, felt really difficult after the mu and handstands and a little pain in the shoulders, need to work these more often.
clean & jerk 135#x3 (a new 3 rep pr)
DL touch-n-go 225x3, 245x3, 265x3 (another 3 rep pr)
DB snatch 35# to 75# by 5# increments each arm, failed on 80# both R&L but felt good, probably could have done 80 if not so exhausted from steping the entire line - next time start at 60#
pullup +50#x2, stopped because the weights were moving too much - I had a 25# on my chest and another on my upper back tied together like plate armour.  Can't wait for that weight vest to arrive.
Swam 3 laps above.
splits for 3 minutes
