Friday we headed out of town for the weekend and I didn't get a chance to do L4D3, but I did have about 30 seconds to spare while we were packing to test my pull up max. 13 this time before the form really suffered. 8) That's up one from last time! I was able to catch up last night then. L4D3: 4:42 ...

Yesterday was L4D2 I did the 4 pull ups and 20 squats each round with a 10# packback, and the 12 push ups with feet on a 15" bucket. I wasn't going for time and, in fact, didn't time it at all. However, that amount of relaxation allowed me to lose track of which round I was on. I think I did all 5. ...

So for the push jerks, this particular tube of sand is long and narrow enough to actually act like a short, fat Oly bar; so i actually hold the bag like a bar.
Ah, okay. I can picture that. Great idea!

I totally agree. Until I see a video of someone doing 100 dead-hang pull ups, she's my hero.

Kipping actually allows you to work in other muscles too. Not just biceps, lats and abs.

DJE, what are you using for sandbags? Something like what Splint made? And to do the push jerks, do you have one on each end of a bar, or are you doing more like a kettleball technique?

Very curious. It's interesting to learn about what alternatives to Olympic weight sets people come up with.

Did you say one armed PULL up? I have yet to try a one armed push up. But they both sound like something I might be able to attempt.

Dude, you're kickin a$$!

GLF, I just came back from time off myself. It's not easy to jump right back in. Your numbers are still looking strong, though. I think a level up might be what you need to catapult you a bit, if you think you are ready. We're definitely pulling for you.

I got confused and off track after so much time off, so I decided to start again at Day 1 on Monday. Not sure if I should call this Week 5, or Week 7 to include the rest time. Anyway, this was Monday: L4D1 : 27 rounds + my typical ab routine. Same numbers as last time, but BIG difference. This time ...

On some of the reps it felt like my legs forgot how to jump. Ha ha! I know exactly what you mean! I thought I'd do much better than I did. 10 reps in a minute doesn't seem like anything at all. But man you sure to need a lot of time to catch your breath. My heart was pounding hard during this worko...

17:58 in sets of 10.

Made sure to pace myself. On the sets where I didn't consciously take it nice and steady, I could feel the fatigue creep in. It's pretty easy to want to hammer these out fast. I'm gonna do this again in a month or so and see if I improve.

Back at it this week. So I actually ended up taking almost two weeks off. We had company on and off and things got pretty busy. I did manage to keep the pull ups going with random GTG sets though. So Monday I did the 100 Burpee Challenge in 17:58. Sets of 10 while my son was watching Return of the J...

There's one at zoneliving.com too. That's the one I've used. You have to have an account to use it, but it's free. I don't think many fat calculations are super accurate unless you actually use calipers. But how accurate does it need to be? I think as long as you keep using the same one, you can sti...
