Wow, 10 pushups in a row is impressive !

I completed that same level but my pullups were more like 4+4+3+3+2 :D

Hi, it's fine to have those exercices for those who want more variety ( detailed explanations will be helpful though as some are not common). As to myself, I think I will stick to the more simple workout. The thing is, it is so simple, so time optimized, that you simply cannot come up with a valid e...

L1D1

Back to the first level for a week....

18APR2007-L1D1 : 50 rounds

You'd think it would be easier after you've completed Level 3, right ?
Well the challenge is in the duration. It has been a *tough* workout.

L1D2 and L1D3 should be interesting...

L3D3

16APR2007-L3D3 : 3min50s ...once again pullups slowed me down. And for the first time I had to stop once during the pushups also. I have completed my first month with simplefit, I am still very happy with this system, it suits me perfectly. I will switch back to Level 1 for a week. It should feel ra...

Hi Kevin,

sorry, I am not sure I get your message. Do you mean I should use one palm up and one palm down during the same pullup ?

hey that's a cool idea :)

Do I understand correctly ?

L3D1

11APR2007-L3D1 : 24 rounds It appears the pullups with palms facing up are easier for me and I end up doing more of these... This workout felt different from the previous Day 1 workouts. The pullups are a real hurdle so you do suffer but differently ! For Level 1 and 2 I could barely breathe when I ...

L2D3

09APR2007-L2D3 : 2min37s

Still struggled with the pullups, no big surprise here...

I am starting Level 3 next as I would like my workouts to be more balanced.

I am feeling very good these days ! For stretching I am using a "contract then stretch" technique which works great for me.

Have fun !

Thanks to both of you for the tips !

Hopefully the improvement I have noticed with my pullups will apply also to the other two exercises. I must say though that for now pushups and squats are relatively easy, and good form is my only focus. As I progress this is bound to change !

L2D2

06APR2007-L2D2 : 2min57sec

I have noticed some improvement with the pullups. Pushups are still easy.

Now I wonder how Day 2 can be done under 5 min from Level 5, or even Level 4 with good form !?

I feel I am doing the pushups and squats as fast as I can already :)

L2D1

04APR2007-L2D1 : 36 rounds

I think I've used my energy more intelligently this time. For L1D1 I would sprint through the first rounds and really struggle by the end.

I have been stretching regularly and feel pretty good I would say !
