No weird looks (I'm always outside), most people ask what I'm training for. :) I tell them LIFE.

When I described what I went through, that's how Kevin put it. Basically, I had a fear of jumping up to the bar, and my body just refused to operate properly. It was mentally exhausting. Switching to bodyrows really helped me through that.

The simplefit recommendation is to drop down TWO levels. If you drop down 1, I say go at a slower pace, matching the number of rounds you got the FIRST time you ever did that lower level. If you never did that level, then use the lowest round count you ever got on your current level.

Tough call, I've never had fitness as part of my 'job'. I would say that it is important to remove any extra workouts besides what is required of you when you starting hitting that wall... if you mentally burn out, nothing will help you.

Definitely debated question... Since L2 still does 1 pull-up for D1, I say move forward, because it will continue to push your muscles with the push-ups, squats, and of course on D2 and D3. volleyball man stayed back till he could do actual pull-ups unassisted, but I only suggest this when you switc...

I wouldn't worry too much about timing day 2... I actually find my times going up (getting longer) after a few months on day 2, because I would slow everything down. Also, to answer you question regarding your 'easy week', when I was on level 1 early on I did level 1 for my easy week, but aimed for ...

You can kip, though consider it a 2:1 kipping:not. Also, I burned out my nervous system doing negatives, so mix it up. I don't see an issue with using a pull-up machine, but you don't get as good a workout as when you are free-floating from the bar. As suggested on simplefit, you should consider doi...

You actually burn a lot more calories running on grass then on a harder surface, it requires more muscles to balance and push off.

I think in some ways its hard.. once you become active, you want to do more. I started doing just simplefit, but then it was a little walking or jogging, and when I get back into it, tennis.
