Thanks !

Pullups were easier this time, although I had to stop 2 or 3 times briefly...

I am switching to level 2 now.

Have fun !

Pullups

Hey ! These pullups are not correct :)

I go up, down and stabilize before I go up again. I don't use my momentum...

What do you guys think ?

Anyway, it was pretty cool to watch that, thanks !

L1D2, second take

30MAR2007-L1D2 : 2min39s

I used the same alternating technique for the pullups : palms up and down.

At this level at least, this is the easy day :)

Getting under 5 min must be *very* difficult as you progress though...

Kudos to the few guys who've already made it !

The abs engagement you describe was the biggest surprise for me.

I switched from "what ? no situps!?" to "Ah okay" real quick....

Ouch again

28MAR2007-L1D1 : 41 rounds

being more familiar with the three exercises helps ! And I used the two types of pullups : palms facing up and down.

I has been another demanding workout. I am happy overall with my current level of energy and also because I have been stretching every day.

Have fun !

Ouch.....

26MAR2007-L1D3: 3m43s I managed to do 5 correct pullups in a row, then had to stop and walk a bit, did 3 more good ones and finished with 2 not fully correct ones... ...then pushups and squats were easy. 10 pullups in a row ? I must have been dreaming :) It's way too soon. Anyway, I will stay a bit ...

Hi ! I think your goals are fine. You have both a mid-term and a long-term goal. It reminds me of a book I read by Mike Horn, the explorer. I have noticed he has a mental picture of where he wants to go, and he keeps it with him all the time, it becomes a magnet for him. He is not obsessed with it t...

Your results are very impressive !

Adding some slow jogging is a good idea I think, I might try that too.

Hi Sam ! Thank you, I appreciate :) I have some experience with these exercises and I did some running these past weeks so it's not like I started from scratch. Day 2 was almost frustrating after the exhausting first day ! I am looking forward to Day 3, I wonder if I'll be able to do all 10 pullups ...
