Re: Maddog's Log

A little update: I am in my new apartment now and simplefit is no longer very viable since the place is tiny, there is nowhere to put a pull-up bar, and the downstairs neighbors are exceedingly cranky. However, I am able to run or walk to a park 1.25 mi from my place and use the playground equipment...

Re: Maddog's Log

Week 19, Level 5, D1: Just barely finished 27 rounds (+12 from last week, -2 from PR). I wasn't sure how today would go, since I spent the entire morning and afternoon moving boxes up and down three flights of stairs to move a friend out so i could move in . However, today is the last day that I'll ...

Re: KTG's Log

@brmc72, I'm gonna jump in and rep Fitocracy. I joined a while ago, not really sure whether I'd like the site, but I've come to find it very useful. The most helpful part for me is being able to look at my progress over a time period and precisely track my workouts. If you haven't already discovered...

Re: Maddog's Log

@KTG, I'll do what I can! I'm hoping to join a climbing gym if I have the time and money. Even if I can't do the simplefit stuff while I'm there, the climbing should do just as much (if not more) for my pull-ups as sf. Week 18, Level 5, Day 2: Times of 1:05, 1:06, :59, :57, :55 for a total of 5:02 (...

Re: Maddog's Log

Week 18, L5, D1 - 15 rounds (-11). This is probably the worst performance I've had on a day one, but today was one of those days where either I took my sweet time or I end up not doing the work out at all. This day represents the pinnacle of several weeks with limited sleep and high stress levels fr...

Re: Kaos' goal/background

Well done, man! That's a really significant achievement! I know from experience that it's a weird feeling to hit your goal and wondering where to go next. Maybe now your goals can be based on feats of strength or in your sf progression rather than weight.

Re: Maddog's Log

Week 17(mislabeled the last few entries...), L5, D2 - 5:08 (-:02 from two weeks ago, didn't time last week). I was sore again this week from D1, but not nearly as bad as before. Week 17, L5, D3 - 6:55 (-:33). Still not as fast as my PR, which is 6:49, but much better than last week. Pull-ups were th...

Re: Maddog's Log

Hi krp. IIRC, I didn't actually go down a level, but I did ease up on the intensity a little. I also tried to be more conscious of form in my push-ups, as far as keeping my elbows from flaring out from my sides. Occasionally I still encounter this pain, but I can generally feel it coming on and adju...

Re: Maddog's Log

Yep, still doing the CC stuff, although to me its more of a fun thing to do on off days from sf rather than a goal in itself. Sometimes it's difficult because it means I am sore most days, and I've been considering shuffling the schedule so I have one "off" day, since right now I do at least one CC ...

Re: Maddog's Log

I was gonna start just posting once a week, but today went so well I have to record it before the endorphins wear off. Week 16, L5, D1 - 29 rounds this week, which is +3 from my previous PR! Today started off very poorly, and I felt like shit in the morning after sleeping through my alarm so I decid...

Re: jsebc's log

I think you're doing great so far! Some people don't even make it through the whole 20 minutes on the first go. Good luck with D3!

Re: Maddog's Log

Thanks :) Week 15: L5D1 - Back up to 26 rounds (+2). D1 is always a chore, but sometimes it just seems to go better for no reason. This was one of those rare days... L5D2 - 5:10 (-:05). Another week of policing my rest times to 3 minutes. Next week I may try 2:30 rests and see how that goes. Times w...

Re: Maddog's Log

Yes, I think I'll follow you as far as Day 2 goes, trying to decrease the rest times while maintaining the same speed and form as I have currently. Thanks! Week 14, L5, D2 - 5:15 (+:07). I stuck to the three minute rests perfectly this week, which may have contributed to my slightly slower time. It'...

Re: Maddog's Log

Ok, that "easy" day seemed to do its magic. I was very sore the next couple days, which probably resulted from getting the fullest range of motion on all my reps. I'm getting busier and busier, and it's going to be increasingly difficult to maintain SF through finals...But that doesn't mean I won't ...
