Level 1, Day 1

Post by flutterby » Tue Mar 13, 2007 2:25 pm

Last night I brought my timer to the gym and went for it.

Total 27 rounds. I should note that I am using an assisted pull-up machine at 50% of body weight. (because otherwise I would be stuck at my first pull-up for the full 20 mins!!) And push-ups were girl-style-- knees down. I pretty much worked through without much for breaks, but was definitely moving a whole lot slower by the end.

And, today... well, let's just say that I'm feeling some pain today. Good pain, though.

I hope to gain on the assisted pull-up. My goal is to be down to 30% of body weight by Level 4 and be able to go into CrossFit after Level 8 at a very minimal assist, if at all.

By Level 4, I will be attempting to do half of my push-ups at regular stance, and complete all at regular stance by the end of Level 8.

I hope these are reasonable goals.

Great work! Remember most people are not used to heavy pulling so take it slow to avoid tendinitis. You muscles will adjust faster that your tendons so easy does it with pull ups when just starting out.

Keep up the good work
