David,
Thank You. My goal that day was 30 reps but someday I want to do something I know no one will ever achieve like 100 reps with 2x bodyweight. I know that sounds crazy but I have only added crossfit type workouts to my training a few months ago and really believe that traing this way might make this possible. I mean once I break 30 reps why not shoot for 5o and then a few more........ I also want to work on all other areas of strength power and fitness. I know my kipping pullup needs alot of help among other things and i intend on giving 100% on everything I do. I am really inspired by how hard everyone on this site works, It really helps me focus and push my self past my limits and I thank everyone for their contribution and input to crossfit. I didnt list all of my stats. 40 years old, 5"4 1/2 tall, 164lbs-170lbs bodyweight. (166 1/2 that day).

You are great at this. I don't know if you'll ever get to a hundred but I'll be rooting for you.

2 minutes of 2x BW squats = pure stud! I'm very impressed.

LOL @ at the shorts ripping!

Awesome work, Gene, that's one hell of an accomplishment! No doubt you'll hit 30+ in the near future.
