Re: Question about D3

There is no 20 minutes on Day 3. There is only "as long as it takes to do the exercises."

Re: Assisted Pull-up Machine: How Many Reps?

I would do the prescribed number of reps (don't use the substitution rate) with the minimum amount of assistance.

Be sure to try unassisted pull-ups regularly. As soon as you can do 1, stop using the Gravitron and do only unassisted real pull-ups.

Re: What do you use for a interval timer?

I have been using Seconds on my iPhone:
http://www.secondsapp.com/

It lets you create custom timers with rest and work intervals, warm-ups and cool-downs, can play music during your intervals and more. Also, it can be started and paused by tapping anywhere on the screen.

Re: Simplefit buddy to keep me honest?

Short of having a friend to work out with, keeping a log and posting pictures of oneself are the best motivators. They keep you honest and show your progress.

If GCal notifications aren't working for you, consider logging your workouts by hand, in a little notebook. Keep it real!

Re: simplefit + weights

He's another of these keyword spammers. Don't worry about it. I have flagged him and Kevin will ban him soon...but I wouldn't say his grasp of English is really the problem.
