Re: Dreaming's Log

One day at a time.

Remember that what you do over weeks and months matters a lot more than what you do on a day-to-day basis.

Hey Joe, welcome aboard!
You can spare 20 minutes a week and, if you eat better, it will make a difference.

Best of luck!

Re: Just starting, need advice

Read my "Intro. to SimpleFit." SF uses 3 basic exercises: Pull-ups If you can't do a pull-up, substitute 3 body rows (youtube) for 1 pull-up. Other substitutions . Jumping pull-ups (.wmv). Maybe girl pull-ups (.mov) might work for you. A good comparison of perfect dead-hang pull-ups and kipping pull...

Week 204

Week 204 Monday, February 13, 2012 D1L6: 25 +1 (±0 cf. previous, -6 cf. PR) Harrumph. I thought I had done 24 rounds last week, so this week I aimed for 25. As it turns out, I did not recall correctly, and had, in fact, done 25 last week. Bummer. On the plus side, I did do one extra round after the...

Because all of pull-ups, push-ups (!) and squats all hit the abs.

Re: Drooping shoulders

I don't think SF is front-side-heavy:
Pull-ups are a back (& lats & arms) exercise.
Push-ups are indeed a front exercise.
Squats are more back than front.

I too like the shoulder dislocations.

Maybe do some superman rocks?

Re: CharlesB's log and questions

Those pull-up assistance machines are great. They will help get you doing pull-ups on your own faster than any substitution or other exercise. Keep at it. You should be able to lower the assistance every week or two. My advice is that you don't do any exercise on the days between SimpleFit workouts....
