    For each workout I'm writing at the top a short term goal. Something that I would like to have accomplished by the end of the 5 weeks before I rotate routines.

    For example, on back day I have 10 BEHIND the neck pullups. I can do them in front all day long, but for some reason I've never been about to master behind the neck. And sticking with the "if it's hard and sucks it's good" theory, I'm going to do it.

    Sounds like a damn good plan. and yes, behind pull ups are hard as balls

    they aren't that hard, as long as you touch your neck to the bar...full rep. Takes some getting used to at first then you'll master it.

    also you have to take a wider than normal grip so your shoulders don't do most of the work in the end.

    our pullup bar sucks, it makes it that much harder.

    Something else people can do is have a column where they rate the difficulty or perceived intensity of a set on a scale of 1-10, as it's easier to track progress when you have quantifiable factors to go by.

    no it's got a straight top and bent bottoms, I use the top because the bent ones aren't wide enough, AND it's built together with dip bars which makes it a pain in the ass.
