Awesome
I just thought you used that username, not that you were super-pullup-man.

Nice job!

Thanks

Guinness World Records has a weight added catagory. I plan on setting they have the min at 200 lbs added.

Huh. Well, you're not so far off now.

I posted a link to that article on my blog, by the way. Partly as an excuse to explain what a half Gardner is, but mainly because a 400+ pound pullup is something totally awesome.

He's a Marine, Doc. He doesn't need to watch his back, cuz not even God can sneak up on a Marine.
