pull ups are all assisted either w/ a stretch band and or jumping pull-up. My plan is to bounce through levels 1-3 until I can do the pull-ups unassisted. I might throw some burpees into the day 1 workout to mix things up.

When I do day 1 I try to keep the spread between my average and max heart rate as small as possible. I think helps me get the most out of that day's workout. At my age, my calculated max HR is 177 bpm.

Performed this workout w/ active 3 minute rest periods ie. I rowed, on my concept2, at a moderate pace during the 3 minute rest period. That really increased the calories burned during this workout as well as the workout intensity and amount of sweat produced. One could add a 300 to 400 meter easy run as a substitute for rowing.

I also did this after a night and day of fasting. Had plenty of energy at 6:45 PM today after having last eaten at 7 PM last evening.

Remember to drop a couple levels at least once a month, also taking a week of can do wonders.

You are doing great!

EPOC (Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption) is defined scientifically as the "recovery of metabolic rate back to pre-exercise levels" and "can require several minutes for light exercise and several hours for hard intervals." ... t=Abstract ... 8572917712 ... ining.html

These workouts can cause metabolic disruption up to 36 hr's post workout depending how hard you hit them.
