Progress Pic, Goals

This is me, picture taken today

My short term goal is to do a muscle-up. For the unaware, a muscle-up is like a glorified pull-up, where you actually lift your whole upper body above the bar, even getting your waist above it. It requires extreme tricep and shoulder strength, which is also absolutely necessary for the Sasuke course. Right now, my biceps are more developed than my triceps, so I'll try to even it out by doing dips, weighted dips, lat pulls, and tricep extensions. I hope to be able to do one in the next 2 weeks. I'll post a video of it when I can pull it off. 
Edit: I tried doing a muscle-up during my workout this afternoon and I actually did 3 of them! Wasn't expecting that at all. I tried doing one a few weeks ago and couldn't do it, so I thought now would be the same. I guess that pull-up training payed off. Since that was a little too easy, I'll revise my short term goal to be 10 muscle-ups.
