Re: trapperjohns log

L3D3 took 7'59" must say i was very dissapointed in how long it took, was really hoping it would be at least close to 5'. of course i did feel a bit week today.

Re: trapperjohns log

did L3D2 today. pullups are getting easier. pushups were actually a little bit of a challenge! part of it may be i changed my hand position after reading this article: http://articles.elitefts.com/articles/training-articles/what-you-don%E2%80%99t-know-about-the-push-up/ hopefully will only be on L3 ...

Re: ukmase log

you are more than ready to move on. the test to move on is if you can do D3 in under 5 minutes. If you did it in half that time you are probably capaple of doing better than l2. I would suggest trying L3

Re: trapperjohns log

L3D1-20 rounds was pleased i was able to get 20 rounds in. that is a significant increase in the amount of pullups compared to L1 and L2. pullups still the weak link. had to alternate grips(pullup, chinup, palms in) and have been doing them in not strict form (kicking legs down on last inch or so) C...

Re: trapperjohns log

did L2D2 today in 5'34" I can not say i did it as fast as I can. I guess my experience in weight training tells me to do them slowly and t really work muscles by going super slow on the negative aspects of the exercise. Pullup strength is getting much better. I think next time i can come in on D3 un...

Re: trapperjohns log

did L2D3 today in 6'03" not as bad as I expected but i obviously need to stay at this level for another week or more. One thing I noticed is the pullups/chinups really hit my front deltoids , I wonder if i am doing them wrong or if my shoulder is just a very weak link.

Re: trapperjohns log

did L2D2 today, time was about 310" or 5'10". I say about because i had "little helpers" working the timer. in the middle of R3 my 3 yo son pushed the reset button. Hate to admit but i did some kicking on the pullups. last set i fell short of the last pull up getting up very high.

Re: trapperjohns log

finally got to where i thought i could hit it again. L2D1==19 rounds. Again its the pull ups that are the challenge. squats are still a breeze at this level. Pushups were slightly more challenging than L1. Some of the pullups I was short an inch or 2, in those cases i lowered real slow and tried to ...

Re: trapperjohns log

did L1D3 in 4'40", think it is time to move to L2. again squats where real easy, pushups needed one short break, but took more than 3:30 to finish the pullups. was a mixture of pullups and chinups. sometimes it wasnt quite all the way to the chin, its those past few inches that kill me.
