Thanks Kevin. I think part of the problem is the setup i am using for the pullups. it makes it difficult to kip. I am going to spend some time over the weekend designing a new one. I am going to use pipe instead of wood, that should give it the rigidity that i need as well as allow me to make dip bars as well. Its a win/win :lol:

After that workout last night, i went in and did plances with my knees on my elbows. I held it for a good amount of time, should have timed it but my wife was watching me and couldn't believe how long i held that position for, ahh the benefits :D

I did a 2 mile run last night 18:10. It was a little more than 2 miles. That is a decent time considering i haven't done more than 400 meters in a row since 9/06.

I only see that time getting better

tonight, back to l1d1 :D
