10/30/07 Rest Day Nothing 10/31/07 Day 1 Level 5 Rounds: 20 - (Warm-up 500m Row) (I really wanted Level 5 for this week. Well, I sure as hell won't complain.

I have mentioned before in a few post that I have noticed strength, endurance, and pure muscle mass gains while losing body fat. It has just been over a month of SimpleFit and the changes in my body composition and performance have surprised me endlessly. I went to the hospital today for a regular c...

I too have been the "strongest" on my day 1s. I know this has something to do with some of my endurance stuff I have done for years. My biking, hiking, rowing, and running background suits day 1. My traditional high school sports experience played a role in this too I'm sure. Anyways, my day 2 and m...

I definitely understand that concept ucffool, because the way you described is how I do mine. It seems more rewarding to me that way. Glad you are striving for your idea of excellence.

If you are getting your chin over the bar and then bringing your arms all the way down, count it. Crossfitters would. Before you know it you will be doing 10 at a time!

Well, I'm right there with ya Bri. If you didn't see I put myself in the challenge as well. I am aiming high at 25 dead-hang pull-ups/chin-ups. I think it's feasible if I can change grips without falling on my arse. I'm concentrating on grip changes while holding onto the bar from now until November...

I found Crossfit before Simplefit. Simplefit was found via Crossfit. Luckily because of this, I had looked at all the material on form (I don't think there is a page I haven't visited on Crossfit.com. I swear I'm not obsessed. :wink:) before starting Simplefit. As much as I hated doing things the wa...
