Re: Goals

Thanks for the reply. I have been away for awhile. I had to look up "metcon". I couldn't keep up the workout as I outlined above up for more than that week. My joints can't take that much abuse. I scaled back to 3 strength workouts a week doing push ups, crunches, and body weight rows. On top of tha...

Re: Goals

This is the end of week 7. I managed to do 1 week of the above mentioned "4 week plan". It was way more than I could handle! The next week (week 6) I did the strength workout I listed above on a monday. My body had enough! I took the rest of the week off and started again with a more modest plan of ...

Re: Goals

O.K. I tried a H.I.I.T workout from my new plan. It killed my calves!!! I made it 4 rounds in about 13 min and decided to quit so I wouldn't be a paraplegic tomorrow at work. My 3 small children danced around me to the music I had playing laughing so It was a painfully good time. I finally took anot...

Re: Goals

I have been doing more web research on fitness and exercise. I have found that simple fit is really a well designed program with a good balance of muscle building and fat loss for a wide range of fitness levels. Having said that I have come up with a new personal plan for the next 4 weeks. I am an e...

Re: Goals

Week 4 level 1 Another strength workout!!!! I used the 1 foot on a chair pullup substitution. I also changed from shoulder width hand placement on my pushups to a narrower one. I can feel myself getting a little stronger! I have enjoyed this all strength training week. I think I will make my off wee...

Re: Goals

Re: Goals

week 4 level 1 I decided this week since its hard to go several levels below level 1 to have fun. I did a level 1 day 2 strength workout. I went slow!!! 3 seconds up, pause 2 seconds, 3 seconds down, pause 2 seconds, e.c.t. on all exercises. Instead of being mad at having to do hanging row pullup su...

Re: Goals

tonight was week3 level 1 day 2 my times were as follows 1 min 1 min 10 sec 1 min 20 sec 1 min 50 sec Man I was struggling tonight. I think that jumping ahead to the negative rep pullups from the hanging rows last workout was too much. I was pretty sore the last couple of days. Since the 30 min 3 da...

Re: Goals

Week 3 level 1 day 1 22 rounds!!:( First of all I think it was funny that I was even considering going to level 2. I changed my pullup substitutions to pullups using my rings with my toes on the ground for the first 2 or 3 sets. Then I had to change to slow negative reps. The last 4 or 5 sets was ha...

Re: Destination

I am just starting out in this, so I might not be the most qualified advice giver. You might want to take this with a grain of salt. You're completing your day3 workout in 7 min and 20 sec. Unless you think that the harder "rope" pullups will add more than 22 min and 40 sec to your workout(according...
