New User! Couple of questions

Post by gazerrant » Sat May 21, 2011 11:56 pm

Hi all. Got directed here from reddit to find a great gym-free workout. Just finished my first workout!

So, I was only able to finish 18 rounds of level 2, and only 10 rounds with a full pullup. The last 8 were pretty much just lowering myself from pullup position.

2 questions:

1) I feel like I could have done more rounds of just pushups and squats - should I adjust the workout to compensate (adding more pushups/squats per set) or should I do as-is and let my pullup ability catch up?
2) How do you think I should log this workout on the site, since only half of the pullups were real pullups?

Thanks,
Gaz

Welcome aboard!

1) Just take your time. Pull-ups will catch up.

2) Log it as 18 rounds. The log built in to the site is of limited use because it doesn't let you comment on your workouts. It only takes a second to enter your numbers, so there's no reason not to use it, but I would created a thread in the workout log section of the forum and log your progress there as well.
