Monday the 18th of May, 2009

Ten rounds for time of:
3 Weighted Pull-ups, 40 pounds
5 Strict Pull-ups
7 Kipping Pull-up

For weighted pull-ups place a 40 pound dumbbell between the legs above crossed ankles and jettison the dumbbell after third rep and continue with strict pull-ups and then the kipping pull-ups. Coming off the bar or going to ground constitutes termination of a set.

Post time and number of sets to completion.

Whipped the sh.. out of my hands and legs, somehow the screw on the jump rope came off during the beating I was giving myself, tied it in a knot to finish.

Working out back home sucks, can't wait to get back to the 305
