Been slacking the last few weeks, with no good excuse other than normal work/home/family related stuff we all use from time to time. Mainly been "greasing the groove" here and there when I actually remember to. Didn't do a Simplefit workout today, just 3 supersets of push-ups and chin-ups to failure...

L5D2 (sub for L4D2)

As Rx'd, but did last round to failure: 6 pull-ups, 25 push-ups, 26 squats (squats not to failure).

Unintentional 1 week break. Gotta work on sticking to a routine.

Week 10: L4D1 26 rounds in 20 minutes Notes: - no subs for a total of 52 unassisted pull-ups (26 pull-ups, 26 chin-ups, all dead hang - didn't do increase number of D1 pull-ups for the first time ever, but since I've switched from kipping to dead hang I'm hardly surprised - alternated regular and di...

I can only speak from experience, but I did start losing weight at first. It wasn't until I upped my calorie and protein intake (just like rdhammond suggests above) that I actually started to put on a few pounds. Keep a log of what you eat (an Excel spreadsheet works nicely) and you'll find calorie ...

L4D3

6:06

pull-ups: 8-5-1-1-2-1-1-1
push-ups: 30-5-3-2-1
squats: 41

Notes:

- alternated pull-ups/chin-ups, all dead-hang instead of kipping
- probably could have done this sub-5 if I kipped, but I think for now I'm done with kipping pull-ups
- several days off schedule, unfortunately

Also, volleyball_man, from checking out your workout logs and your blog I gotta say your progression is inspiring. I won't be tackling Crossfit for a while yet, but reading your blog makes it less intimidating.

I certainly see Crossfit in my future, but unfortunately I just don't have room for the equipment I'd need to do it at home. There are 4(!) Crossfit affiliates within 30 minutes of my apartment, but for now their monthly fees are a bit too rich for my blood. Also, I am pretty nervous about Crossfit....

I've been mixing pull-ups and chin-ups for as long as I've been doing Simplefit and it's worked out quite well for me. Granted, this means I can do more reps by mixing than if I just stuck to pull-ups, but I remain unconcerned, since I've been seeing gains in strength in both my arms and my back. I ...

lightthievesall's progress

I just started Simplefit week 9. As I've mentioned elsewhere I'm pretty satisfied with the program and my progression thus far. I'm 25, 5'11" and at the start of Simplefit I weighed 157 lbs. In the first few weeks I actually lost 5 lbs (I'm about 152 in the second picture below) but after adjusting ...

Week 9: L4D1 28 rounds in 20 minutes Notes: - no subs, for 56 total unassisted pull-ups (28 pull-ups, 28 chin-ups), personal best by 8 - again alternated between normal, close and wide stance push-ups - did first 10 rounds (20 pull-ups, 40 push-ups, 60 squats) in 5:50, which makes me think a sub-5 L...
