Sweet Skills

The other day my colleague was goin' on about how he had done a ton of chin-ups at the gym over the weekend and how pumped his biceps were and how he felt like a tough guy, so I told him about a friend of mine who could do one-armed pull-ups pretty easily in high school. Duly impressed, my coworker told me that he had seen a website that shows how to train for one-armed pull-ups. A quick google search turned up the link;
http://www.beastskills.com/OneArmPull.htm

Now I ask you, how sweet is that? I know I have karate skills, and japanese skills, but I don't have many beastskills.

A few minutes later, my coworker noticed I was intently reading the chin-up site. "Oh cool! You found the website. What do you think?"

"I think I'm going to have to do a one-armed pull-up or chin-up."

And I mean it. My goal is to get it done during 2006. Then I will be the sweetest guy ever.
