Cracked triple digits for weighted dips today.. +100lbs on the dip belt for a single. It was a struggle but I did make it all the way to lockout. +bodyweight is the goal - 40lbs to go for that..

Yeah, if you can do 7 or 8 pullups, it's time to load up the dip belt. I hit my first goal of 2011 a couple of weeks ago - 6 strict form dead hang pullups with a 45lb plate on a dip belt.
