Well, I don't get to go to fulll bodyweight rows, yet.

D3: 5'54"

Still, better than last week. Maybe I advance next week.

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

Didn't miss D2!! Also, I have a new record. This is awesome, because the current L1 workout is harder than the last one 3 weeks ago (horizontal body-rows instead of at an angle). round 1 - 0'56" round 2 - 0'56" round 3 - 0'56" round 4 - 1'02" round 5 - 1'07" Total time was 7'17", which means I only ...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

So...last week had the following: D1: 24 rounds - and I had to REALLY push just to get the last two. A little discouraging, but not too bad. D2: null. Again. On the plus side, the Mrs. and I took a 4 mile walk. So I wasn't inactive. Just not doing SF. D3: 8:35. This was really discouraging. My head ...

Pull ups and cool downs

Hey, I'm in Week 4, and had a couple questions that digging through the forums could not answer. Looking for any info or advice... - I'm currently incapable of doing a straight pull up (unassissted lift from a dead hang). So I'm on a progression( http://www.fitness666.com/2012/06/pull-up-progression...

Re: Workout vs Play Question

1) I play with my kids a lot, so monkey bars and climbing trees are a decent portion of my outside time (only every other week, when I get visitation with my kids, but still). Even though I'm only on week three, I didn't really notice it affecting my SF workouts (but it's only a total of about 2 hou...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

Week 3. I didn't work out on Wednesday. I should've, and I had the time, I just didn't. That said, I went ahead and did D3 today, just to see what it looked like with the change to my bodyweight rows. D1: 24 rounds. A 2 round decrease from last week, but since I expected to go back down to the 17-20...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

Week 2 done! As stated earlier, I'm still working Level 1, and the plan is to stay there until I can do at least Day 1 with real pullups. So... D1: 26 rounds. Still doing 45 degree bodyweight rows. I probably could have (should have?) kept going after the 20 minutes, but I'm just going to stick grim...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

OK! D2&3 done! D2: round 1 - 1'10" round 2 - 1'15" round 3 - 1'12" round 4 - 1'21" round 5 - 1'22" I had about 6 minutes of rest spread throughout D2. I think the round times are ok, though. Especially since this is my first D2 ever. D3: 6'25" Had a question about D3. Do most of you out there pre-pl...

Re: feedback needed

Seems fine to me. Although I get this flash of completely unformatted text before it snaps into the normal mode that we all see and use. Don't know if it's just me, or everybody sees that.

Re: Question

Do you mean easy as in "easier to perform" or "easier to make use of because you don't have a pull up bar?" You can snag pull up bars for around $20 just about anywhere, now. If it's the exercise itself, here are a couple of ways to get bodyweight rows in... - you can make/purchase suspension traine...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

So, while the internet is full of DIY suspension rigs, they range from $9-40 to assemble, and it turns out that a lot of the parts that I would need were not sourced locally (out of stock). But on a rogue trip to Wal-Mart, I picked up this guy on sale: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Gold-s-Gym-Suspended-...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

Thanks! It seems that negatives are also too hard to do enough of, but after reading that link, I think I wasn't going down fast enough - at least I think I took longer than 3 seconds to get down. Given my first run in with SF, it's clear I have no concept of time... :-) I'm going to dig around yout...

Re: Off days?

I've only just started, but I'm also putting SimpleFit as a MWF workout. My Tuesdays and Thursdays are usually 15 hour days, though, so I don't plan on doing anything there. But probably yoga on Saturday, and nothing on Sunday. If I had the time, I'd probably do yoga on Tues/Thurs. Or get back into ...

Re: Doji Grovesai's log

So my previous post was not entirely accurate (post workout fog, I imagine). My later rounds were not 2 second hangs, but straight drops. The results were not good. I overworked my arms, and came too close to pulling something. But I got checked out and everything was "fine". Very limited range of m...
