    My landmark training moments by the end of 2009 were:

    [LIST=1][*]naked pistol on left leg. Right leg is not yet ready, but it's getting better.[*]BW dead lift done for 3x5 reps, up from zero. I need heavier weights.[*]5 straight chinups, up from zero. Limit is 14 in a session.[*]Shoulder Shock and Swing Volume program completed at 12kg. The highlights are 4 5-rung press ladders and 400 swings/20min. Completed 3 x 5/5 16kg snatches and 2 3-rung 16kg press ladders as a test afterward.[/LIST] ...

    Began my first actual ETK RoP today with a press baseline test. I'm excited at how well this started. I've got specific things to work on. Grip (swings), press endurance, long pullup sets, develop variety days, develop snatch into something useful and safe. Take pictures and video.

    [B]Press: 3-rung test, finished 5 sets[/B]
    [B]Pullups: 3-rung[/B]
