I didn't have any problems with the pull-ups, which is a minor miracle. I still have to cheat a little because I can't do a pull-up from full extension. If I start just above full extension, then I can do it without any problems.
I didn't have much trouble with the workout either. I used a 16kg bell for the swings and could probably go heavier next time. I used a 25lb bell for the figure 8 and high pull squat. I didn't want to go too heavy with these because I need work on the "flip" part of the exercise. However, I will probably go to 35/30 for the next workout.
