agreed. Faster day 3 is better, but for me eliminating substitutions is better still. i did L2D1 again L2D1 (1 pullups, 3 pushups, 4 squats.) 22 and had to do the last two rounds with legs- spread pushups. The pushups are killing me. Pullups were no problem because when there is only 1 you don't hav...

Splint- totally agree about thrusters, that is a barbell exercise that isn't too complicated. Also agree about flexibility being the limiting factor in Olympic lifts. The problem lifts for me are the clean and jerk, and the front squat. I can't get my wrists/elbows/shoulders in the catch position. V...

Thanks, David. I took some time off of L2D3 too but I am a long way from L3. L2D3 (13 pullups, 26 pushups, 26 squats.) 8:33 I kipped the first 9 pullups in sets of three, then had to switch to body rows subbing 3 for 1. There was no way I was going to get any more kipping pullups. Pushups went prett...

I'll be watching to see how the db exercises work out for you. They seem safer than Olympic lifts with barbells. My barbell experiences have always ended in injury so I am really looking forward to seeing how the db thing works goes for you. Thx for posting it.

The squats sneak up on you! I remember thinking the same thing. After you have been doing them for a few weeks you notice. Good luck with the running. It's great that you are getting your blood pressure under control while you are still young. You are going to look back at this and be so so glad you...

L2D2 (3 pullups, 8 pushups, 13 squats) 1:07 1:08 1:20 2:13 1:50 Pushups are still the hard part. I am thrilled to be able to do three pullups in a row. I am doing kipping pull ups on an apparatus with a hammer grip. Splint, thanks for the tips. I am going to try a dead hang pull up in a week or two....

Hi David! I'm right behind you, hoping to get to L3 in a few weeks. My L2D1 numbers are close to your, but you are blowing me away on day 3. For D1 do you have a strategy, or do you just go all out and see how far you get? I do a round every 45 sec for the first 4, then every minute. Next time I am ...

L2D3 last week 9:41 Next time I do D3 I am going to sub body rows from the start. I ended up switching at some point, I am not sure where. Pushups were 8,4,4,3,3,2,2 and the squats were unbroken. L2D1=21 which is one higher than last time. The pushups are killing me here. I am pretty happy about all...

Just realized the last post should have been L2D1, not L2D2. Anyway, today was L2D2 and I couldn't kip so I had to go back to jumping pullups on the first two rounds followed by body rows on the last three. I need a full-height bar to kip and I did this workout at an elementary school playground. 1:...

L2D2 19 I kipped! No jumping pull-ups this time, all kipping (overhand grip) or dead hang with an underhand grip. I have tried to kip unsuccessfully many times before, but today I got it. I think that this video helped. Watching someone do weighted pull-ups while sucking the last bit of air out of ...

Thanks David! actually it is not that impressive- There are only 2 pullups per round on L2D2, so I did 5 real pullups, and not in a row. Today I did D3, which had 13 in a row and after the first two I had to jump. L2D3 11:13 Pullups 5:22 in sets of 2, slight jump one everything after the first set P...

L2D1 20 in 19: 20 subbing pull ups with desk rows 4 for 1 (3 for 1 was too easy this was a low desk) L2D2 7:42 the first two-1/2 rds were real pullups, after that jumping and slowly lowering. The pushups were harder on L2D2 than I expected. Here are the round times: 1:04 1:22 1:43 1:39 1:54 Onward.....

This stuff is not easy so don't worry about the past, just keep going. Every day is a new day. If you gained 20 lbs fast you will loose it fast and hopefully have just as much fun along the way. Only a different kind of fun it will be.

Thanks for the tips. There are a lot of pullups on L2 D3 and I am going to do one or two real ones than sub bodyrows. That will also keep my time under several hours :) I have been doing shoulder dislocates with a towel and I will keep doing 'em. L2D2 The 40+ heat killed me on round 4 but the first ...

Thanks! I am looking forward to doing more. I have done knuckle pushups in the past, they are easier on the wrists. I have been doing regular pushups with my hands at shoulder level. With knuckle pushups I end up bringing my elbows in so my hands are at about sternum level. Which is better? Level 2 ...
