Zorg, I do tai chi in addition to SF (and some lite running) - have done it for going on 13 years, after it was recommended for a back injury. Can't recommend it enough, I do it once nightly before bed and it's the shizzle. Doesn't really do much by way of getting you fit (at least not how I do it) ...

Pullup form was execrable for the last few rounds - kicking, groaning, squirming. Rest was okay.

Unintentional rest day - wife and baby came back into town, wound up spending the time with them instead of running. No regrets.

L2D3 -- 2:52

Amazing how just a few more reps can more than double your time...

7/19/08 Skipped to L1D3, so I can start a MWF routine on Monday. L1D3 1:26 Wasn't as bad as I thought - was able to power through all 10 pullups (okay, chinups) without a break. Still going to start Monday on L1D1, but push it a little harder this time... Really looking forward to doing this routine...

Thanks, cheapo - it's a great suggestion - not sure if I'm quite emotionally prepared for photos of myself on the internet just yet. Plus I'd be tempted to sub in shots of Ross Enamait or somebody...

If I measured accurately, I'm at 18.3% body fat.

36 inch waist
38 inch hips
11 inch forearm
7 inch wrist

This is based on the healthcentral.com site calculator.

Chest is about 40 inches. So how come I look fat from the side in the mirror? Weird.

Joined the gym at work and cranked out a little StrongLifts, but wound up overtraining and getting a cold that lasted about a month. Pre-baby, did TMFS and some scaled CrossFit - now I'm starting ba...
