Small Victory

As of last week, I can do a neutral grip (door-mounted Iron Gym) pullup. Its not dead hang and I can't do more than one without putting my feet back on the ground, but I would say that cf definitely works.

Re: Small Victory

Thanks everyone! There are way too many tattoos to take a picture of each one though. Maybe when I get my six pack.

Awesome! A pullup is NOT a small victory. It is a huge victory. That was my coolest CrossFit moment ever until I got my first muscle up last month. As Camille wrote in my log when I got mine, "How many women can do a pullup? How many men even? And YOU can!"
