Mark,

That is absolutely inspiring about your pull-ups! I don't have a kip yet. I know it's only been 10 weeks, but I keep trying and look like a hooked fish flopping on a line for all it's worth . It'll probably come someday when I don't expect it.

I couldn't do 1 pull-up (of any kind) 10 weeks ago. I was at 220 lbs. I got my first DHPU just a few weeks ago. The last time I could do 1 pull-up was 28 years ago at about 175 pounds in the LEO academy! I can do 3 in a row now if I'm not too tired. CF is simply amazing stuff! The only thing discouraging me right now is my propensity for these injuries.
