What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

The program seems fairly aimless... if just for pure conditioning work you could do much better, heh.

Strength you say?

Start working on tons of handstand work and variations.. handstand pushups, presses and such.

Do everything on rings (except maybe like planche and front lever work although you can do them there too if you want).

Work your muscle ups, dips, pullups, back levers, skin the cats, ice cream makers, L-sits, press to shoulder stand/handstand (with strap use of course until you don't need straps), and everything in between.

Perhaps even create a mini routine for yourself that you do maybe 5-10 times. You will get strong rather quickly.

"Pull-up to lever"
http://www.drillsandskills.com/article/17

Basically pullup top position to front lever (or slightly above.. maybe 45 degrees from vertical) and then back to the top of the pullup position. Keep your body straight. The only thing bending is the arms.

I actually thought about trying this as 'kipping pullups' per se but yeah the cycle time isn't that fast. It might be more or less work compard to pulls but it distributes the work around the body more as opposed to just the hips/lats/biceps/chest with kipping pullups.
