Week 9:

L4D1

28 rounds in 20 minutes

Notes:

- no subs, for 56 total unassisted pull-ups (28 pull-ups, 28 chin-ups), personal best by 8
- again alternated between normal, close and wide stance push-ups
- did first 10 rounds (20 pull-ups, 40 push-ups, 60 squats) in 5:50, which makes me think a sub-5 L4D3 is possible this week if I really push it
- goals/pics
- where do I go after Level 8?

Soundtrack:
Dio, appropriate considering last weekend's sad news.

L5D2 (substituting for L4D2)

(not timed, but about 7-8 minutes)

1: 5 pull-ups, 15 push-ups, 26 squats
2: 5 chin-ups, 15 push-ups, 26 squats
3: 5 pull-ups, 15 diamond push-ups, 26 squats
4: 5 chin-ups, 15 wide-stance push-ups, 26 squats
5: 5 pull-ups, 15 leg-raised push-ups, 26 squats

Notes:

- made it through, but just barely
- pull-ups and chin-ups were dead hang instead of kipping
- will probably stick with L5D2 next week, but might try L6D2 if I'm feeling seriously motivated

L4D3

6:06

pull-ups: 8-5-1-1-2-1-1-1
push-ups: 30-5-3-2-1
squats: 41

Notes:

- alternated pull-ups/chin-ups, all dead-hang instead of kipping
- probably could have done this sub-5 if I kipped, but I think for now I'm done with kipping pull-ups
- several days off schedule, unfortunately

Week 10:

L4D1

26 rounds in 20 minutes

Notes:

- no subs for a total of 52 unassisted pull-ups (26 pull-ups, 26 chin-ups, all dead hang
- didn't do increase number of D1 pull-ups for the first time ever, but since I've switched from kipping to dead hang I'm hardly surprised
- alternated regular and diamond push-ups to target my arms more

L5D2 (sub for L4D2)

As Rx'd, but did last round to failure: 6 pull-ups, 25 push-ups, 26 squats (squats not to failure).

Unintentional 1 week break. Gotta work on sticking to a routine.

Been slacking the last few weeks, with no good excuse other than normal work/home/family related stuff we all use from time to time. Mainly been "greasing the groove" here and there when I actually remember to.

Didn't do a Simplefit workout today, just 3 supersets of push-ups and chin-ups to failure.

1: 35 push-ups / 10 chin-ups
2: 19 / 6
3: 9 /4

6/25:

Just 3 sets chin-ups, 10/7/5.

6/27:

chin-ups: 11/7/6
wide/diamond push-up supersets: 10/10, 10/10, 10/9
shuffle push-ups: 3/3/3

Gonna try this push-up workout (as RX'd, instead of my version today) and mix in pull-ups/chin-ups and pistols once I can actually hold my balance enough to do one.

Question: I know with squats in general it's important to keep your weight on your heels, but is that true of pistols (one-legged squats) too? I can't get my weight any further back than about mid-foot and keep my balance. Advice?

6/28:

pyramid pull-ups, 10s rest - 1/2/3/4/5/1/1

6/29:

wide push-ups - 15/15/15
shuffle push-ups (L,R) - 10,10/6,5/4,4
diamond push-ups - 9/5/5

pull-ups - 2/2/2
chin-ups - 2/2/2
pull-ups - 2/2/2

Notes:

- going to try not only the push-up workout linked above, but also 20 pull-ups
- screwed up on the pull-ups pyramid; turns out it was 10 seconds rest per rep per set, not just 10 seconds total rest between sets; the 20 pull-ups page doesn't always explain things out all the way
- Simplefit rules, but I feel the need to switch it up for a few weeks to keep things interesting

- camping trip out of town meant I got some exercise on my "days off", but not the bodyweight variety
