L3D1 -- 24 rounds

1 round every 50 seconds, per cheapo's suggestion of interval timing. Tough, but maybe should have tried for 25. Next time.

Warmup 5 minutes, ran easy 25, cooldown 5 minutes.

1/31/09

L3D3 -- 3:08.

Warmed up a full 10 minutes, then broke up sets like this (pullups/pushups/squats):

8/11/11
4/11/11
2/11/11
2

Then ran the SimpleFit Week 1 challenge-thing -- 3 rounds of sprint all-out for 1 minute, 2 minutes walk (jogging the 2 was out of the question).

The whole thing kicked my ass pretty good.

Took a nice fast 30 minute walk to and from the bookstore. Not a workout, as such, but hey, I was movin'.

2/3/09

L4D1 -- 21 rounds

Did it on the assist pullup/dip machine at the gym at work, subbed dips for pushups. Hey kids! Wanna feel like a pansy for your D1 workout? Sub dips for pushups! I was gassed at 17, had to use the assist at 45 pounds for the last four sets.

Finished off with hanging leg raises x 20.

L4D2 -- unknown time, the whole thing was a mess.

Did it at the work gym, subbed dips for pushups, until I realized that 12 dips after 4 pullups is kind of deadly. Did wall-balls w/20 pound ball for squats.

3 reps as rx'd, then some dude wanted to work in on the pullup bar. He then proceeded to monopolize it for a long time (what are you, gonna marry this thing?), so I went off to do dips and squats, then returned to find my pullup form had gone to hell and I could only manage 3. Yeesh.

Bailed, then did 3 rounds on the heavy bag -- 3 minute rounds with 1-ish minutes rest. It just about killed me, my heart was beating so fast at the end... I have a feeling I'm going to be living in L4 for a while.

The way I read that you did 8 pull ups followed by 10 push ups followed by 10 squats and then went back to do 4 pull ups. That's not how I understand D3 should be done?

Oops!

I only paid attention to the level and the time.

ianjb is correct.

Damn. Figured that was too easy. Not that it was.

Anybody have a line on what the benefits of doing the exercises straight through are, over splitting up the pullups, pushups and squats? In any case, I'll rest week at L1, then go back and repeat L4 as rx'd. Better to do it right...
