Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEK 9 - Level 6 10/6/14 L6D1 - 19 rounds Increased one round! Pretty close to the max I can do without sacrificing form. You simply cannot squeeze much more than one round per minute if you do it properly. Maybe one round every 45 seconds, but that would be a stretch. L6D2 - Rounds: 02:22, 02:41, 0...

Re: Workout for off days?

I would definitely go with Yoga. Good isometric exercise, helps with balance, posture, increases energy flow, boosts your immune system, maximizes weight loss, maximizes muscle growth. Make sure to add some form of mindfulness meditation (attention to breath is easy and most effective). Check YouTub...

Re: Am I doing this right?

1. Yes, it counts. 2. On Day 3 (L6D3) you shouldn't measure rest time. On Day 3 the clock never stops, as JK said. 3. Day 5? What the heck is Day 5? Simplefit only has 3 days (D1, D2 and D3). Please explain. Training to failure should be avoided but you will be reaching failure sometimes, is inevita...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEK 8 - WTF!? Since I know that millions of people are tuning in every week to watch the unfolding of my fitness saga, I must be honest with you guys. I decided to take a decompression week. Every fitness trainer tells you to take a week off every once in while, and it just felt right to do it now....

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEK 7 - LEVEL 6 (Second try - FAILED...oops, I meand, "didn`t progress"...) 09/24/14 L6D1 - 18 rounds. Woo-hoo! Managed to increase rounds from previous week! And actually didn`t finish so wasted. Thumbs up for me! :P 09/26/14 L6D2 - Rounds at 02:56, 02:42, 02:13, 02:49, 03:40 On that last round I ...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

Hey, JK! Thanks a bunch for the support, man. A dinner at a buffet sounds tempting right now, actually! I must admit that I am a somewhat tongue-in-cheek person, and I do not consider that result "failure" in the harsh sense of the word. I tend to exaggerate a bit. I am pretty satisfied with my prog...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEK 6 - Level 6 - (FAILED!) 09/16/14 L6D1 - 15 rounds I figured 15 rounds is ok, since the total count of reps for each exercise is pretty high, better than D2 or D3. 09/18/14 L6D2 - Rounds 02:00, 02:15, 01:56, 03:12 (had to stop and answer the phone), 01:29 09/20/14 Round: 13:15 Yes, I took 13 min...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEK 5 09/10/14 L5D1 - 17 rounds. D1 leaves me wasted... 09/12/14 L5D2 - Rounds 01:41, 01:35, 01:59, 02:13, 02:14. Piece of cake. 09/14/14 L5D3 - 04:51 Almost didn`t make it. Probably going to be stuck on level 6 for a while. My strategy of short mini-sets worked. It`s much easier to do many mini-se...

Re: JK's log

Hey JK, I recently did a little mod that I thought might be worth considering in your workouts, since you are focusing on the pull ups (which are really hard indeed). What I have been doing is switch Push ups and Squats. So instead of going from pull ups to push ups, I do squats as the middle exerci...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEk 4 09/03/14 L4D1 - 22 rounds in 20:00. Not much to comment, really. Rounds keep dropping, as expected. But my total count of reps for each exercise is higher than on D2 (more than double), so I figure I'm ok. L4D2 - Rounds 01:20, 01:25, 01:30, 01:31, 01:40. Perfect form, and slow movements. L4D3...

Re: Workout Strategy

Paul, I think it would be advisable to focus on L2 until you can beat L2D3. Day 3 is very simple, you start the exercises, exactly as prescribed, in that order, and don't stop till you're done. If you're done before 5 min, progress. Otherwise, don't. The clock never stops, and you can take all the b...

Re: Workout Strategy

Hey Paul, I'll offer my 2 cents for what it's worth. JK said it well, we'd need more info on your logs, but also on your condition (age, weight, height, other physical activities, previous injuries etc.) So you have been at it for 2 years and you can do L5D2 (without breaks in the middle of sets!) b...

Re: Edie77`s Fabulous Fitness Foray (aka My LOG)

WEEk 3 - August 26th to 30th. L3D1 - 27 rounds in 20:00. My rounds on day 1 have been dropping vertiginously. :D Well, who cares? Day one can be brutal. It is by far the day I dread the most. I'm usually spent by the end of those 20 minutes. I definitely dislike D1. My digestive issues that had been...

Level 2 Day 3 (L2D3) - 02:39

Comments: I haven`t been feeling very well almost all week. Not sure what it is. Some digestive issue. But round completed today (Sunday, 08/24), and onto level 3 we move. Got a major headache after this short workout...

Re: JK's log

Hey JK, you're an inspiration, sticking to the program for so long! Congrats, man! I did put on 4 pounds in a little over 8 days, yes it is possible...I wish losing those pounds was just as fast... :( I like your detailed tracking as well, did you find it very helpful in the long run? As for 40 roun...
