I'm a fat slob looking to start paying attention to fitness. A friend of mine sent me a link to this page and I thought I'd give it a shot for a month and see how I feel.
I've got some questions about the workouts (i.e. the info on this page http://www.simplefit.org/workouts.html
1. Pullups ... I don't have a pullup bar, I bought one that fits in doorways, but the doors in my apartment are too thick for it to attach correctly. Also, I'm so fat I don't think I could do a single pullup. Any suggestions for alternative exercises until I can build up some strength and build a pullup station that I can fit in the apartment?
2. What does " 5 rounds for time" and "for time" mean on the day two and day three columns. What does "max rounds in 20 min" mean? For level one first day would I just do 1 pull up then 2 pushups, then three squats then repeat as often as I can for 20 minutes?
3. Any harm in doing these more than three times a week?
4. When you say "One week a month do all the workouts several levels below your normal" is this basically taking a rest week without completely stopping? I.e. if I'm doing things at level 2 ... I just drop down to level 1 for a week?
Thanks for your time, your website looks really well done. I hope I can work up the willpower to do this.
