Default Weighted pull-ups

From Issue 16, when it says 60% of 1rm weighted pullup, do you include bodyweight? E.g. I'm 175 lbs and have a 90lb 1rm. Is it .6(175+90) or .6(90)? If it's the former, do I worry that 159 (i.e. -16 lbs) is below my bw? If it's the latter, I can't see myself getting 6x6 with 54lbs added.

60% of 90lbs. It may be too much, but try it. If it proves to be too heavy, find a weight that will allow 6 x 6 and note that percentage for the next cycle.
