Hi TexasMike I'm in no way an expert in nutrition, have only a couple of basic notions. BUT I must say that eating only in a time frame as limited as that will probably be best suited to people that have the time and patience to do it and do not have a very active life. Follow this: you wake up in t...

Great to hear! If you can post a link to the doorway pull up bar that permits dips. Thanks Hey, you misunderstood me man. I bought an extra pull up bar. So instead of one I have two, parallel to each other. This way the inverted pull ups can be done and so can dips. On the bad side, the dips are do...

Hey I must say that crossfit's idea is good: women's names are beautiful. Somehow one just can't hate a workout that has a women's name. So one might just issue other women to the days. Perhaps instead of all English names some names from other countries? On the other hand, as Cipe and ryan lead to ...

UPDATED Did several updates to first post. Have jumped to WORKOUT 2, and must say that though it seems easier, it's not. There are two important things I can write to other forum users from my experience so far: one, do not stop for a full week all exercise. If you're used to exercising everyday, yo...

Hello again Thanks to the Admin (sorry, but i don't know your name) for all the links. I will be using simplefit from now on as my workout (as in "official day workout"). There are a number of exercises I'm sure I'm going to miss (like Ross Enamait's Reach and Bend, or a few core exercises with the ...

UPDATE 24 / 4 / 2007 L8D1 After missing the workout mapped for 21st April, did L8D1 yesterday, the 24th. This time I chose to reduce my rest times, in order to keep a continuous effort. Didn't race against the clock this time. Alarm went off during the 16th rep. Did 1 rep pullups for every rep of ch...

Thanks for the replys. Chinups are clearly easier, on a proportion of 3 to 1 I feel (1 pullup for every 3 chinups).

If you have access to a BOSU balance trainer, you can turn it flat side up, so it wobbles, balance yourself on it and, holding a 4lb medicine ball (or light kettlebell) out in front of you (arms strtched out straight), squat. I think this would be a good day 2 change up as you have to squat slowly ...

Hello I'm new on this forum (and on this specific workout). I can say from experience though that squats might not get faster in future workouts, but they'll certainly feel less elastic, more controled, more of a product of your muscles and less and less of the bumping effect. I wonder though if, in...

Hello everyone I'm 23 years old, used to practice martial arts every day but since I started teaching it's been increasingly difficult to train as much as I used to (got to keep an eye on student's form). I'm 1,75 m, 76 kg. (That's about 5'6" I guess and 170 pounds?) I've always had a tendency to be...
