Today I did the weighted pullup WOD and got a PR by a significant percentage. My last weighted pullup might have maxed out at 70#, 4 months ago or more. Today I got 100#, at a BW of 160! I was psyched, though worried that the belt would break. I tried 115, but could only get to 90 degrees. Something to try for next time!

Seems that way...I'm moving back! I think there's something in the water up there.

Good showing Ben! Be sure and give your tendons enough time to catch up to your muscular development -- if your elbows complain, try switching to the rings to continue your progress.

A 30lbs PR after 4 months of not training that lift? Extremely impressive!
