body weight exercises

Aren't pyramids and ladders the same? Or do pyramids always consist of multiple different exercises?


Last week was mainly active recovery (long walks and some running).

I decided to focus primarily on good form and cardio in the next two months.
That means I will go very easy on the simplefit-workouts and only do them so fast that I can maintain my best form in each repetition.
Between the sf-days I will do some running. My goal is to be able to run one hour straight with medium speed on hilly terrain.

Did L3D1 today:
20 rounds in 20 minutes

Been running on tuesday and thursday (3-5km (~2-3 miles)).

L3D2 today:
4:30

Could have been faster, but I replaced the last 15 usual push-ups with 5 finger push-ups and 10 hindu push-ups (an easier variation of divebomber push-ups(explained here). Feels very good, but is way more exhausting than normal push-ups).

Outstanding, as you progress it is great to mix stuff up. You can also play with how far apart your hands are, do them on your fists, raise your legs.

To work towards a one armed push up put one hand on a block or some other stable surface and let the other arm do most of the work.

Great work!

Been running again, 5.4km/380m altitude(190 up, 190 down) in 40 minutes


Thanks for the tip on one-handed push-ups. I think I might use a scale instead of a block though, so I have a way to measure progress with this technique.

L3D3:
3:10 minutes. Very satisfied. Been able to do both the squats and push-ups in one set each.

Couldn't really exercise in the last weeks because of hay fever. It's pretty intense this year because it didn't rain for weeks, and it's very warm so everything grows and spreads it pollen.

Ughh i know how bad the hay fever can get. I live in the south, one weekend our pollen count went over 7,000 :shock:

normally they consider a count over 100 high.
