Re: varying pullup grip

You can also vary the width of the grip, and you can do similar things with pushups and squats. I think maybe it makes the most sense to use lots of variation during Day 1. On Day 2, maybe use the hardest 1 or 2 variations, or start with the hardest variation and work toward the easiest as you fatig...

Re: A PDF summary of the program would be very helpful.

I haven't been back on the program for long, and I'm not advanced or anything, but I'm in. I'd also be willing to assist with editing.

Re: A PDF summary of the program would be very helpful.

Kevin, I don't know how feasible it would be to make a hard copy, but there's enough solid info here that you could at least get something for your efforts. Simplefit comes up a lot, but hasn't made the mainstream. To me it seems that this is due to the J.C. Hise (breathing squat guy) phenomenon (wa...

Back off to accomodate fatigue?

Hey, all, I know this doesn't go along with the plan, but I thought it might be worth posting. I experimented with decreasing reps as needed to accomodate fatigue, starting at a high level and dropping reps off proportionally as needed. Cons: No clear levels for D1 and D2 Difficult to tell which lev...

long-term

Well, in the diet's defense, I am not really able to stick to much of anything for very long. When I was No S-ing, I was able to stay on-board for longer than for any diet I've ever been on. My schedule changed and has given me great difficulties since with any plan I try. I was again doing well on ...

nosdiet

I used the No S Diet to drop 10 pounds in five weeks a couple of years ago. I've gone quite far afield, however, and I accept responsibility for caving to social pressures and bad habits. One big problem was the "transformation mindset" that you stay on a diet for six weeks with a warrior's resolve,...

oh well

Anyway, the reason I posted the review was that I saw an older thread in which Kevin mentioned that perhaps the simplefit recommended diet was too severe for mass appeal. This thread was kind of in response to that, but I guess it wasn't a very interesting thing. I like the paleo thing, myself.

Book Review-No White at Night

Hi, simplefitters! This is my first book review here. I recently purchase the book [/i]No White At Night: The Three-Rule Diet by Bill Gavin, M.D. The premise of the book is that we eat too much (true!) and that we eat too many starches (true, for me anyway). THis has contributed to making many of us...

Hello!

Hi, all! I found simplefit months ago during a search for "bodyweight exercise circuit" or something like that. My training (Matt Wiggins' concept/my customization) is a three day rotation of: Bodyweight Exercise MetCon Day (BWE only) Barbell Strength Day (ME or DE) Kettlebell Day The BWE days are s...
