Hey, everybody. This is my first day with this program. I've worked out in the past, but I'm a lot busier than I used to be so I'm having a hard time finding time to get to the gym. I thought this might be a good way to keep some strength training in my schedule. I used to run a lot but got runner's knee. I'm trying to rehab this and the squats should help. the end goal is to combine this program with about 25-30 miles of running per week after slowly rebuilding my running base.
I'm male, 24, 5'9", 175 lbs, and a vegetarian. I follow something close to the diet described on this site, except that I don't eat meat and I tend to eat more complex carbs from grains than most people here seem to eat (for a variety of reasons).
Anyway, here goes nothing:
: 18 rounds, assisting myself on pull-ups with a box (squatting down to full extension of my arms and then performing the pullup like normal)
: It seems like I got far fewer rounds than a lot of people on L1D1. I took the exercises slow, especially squats, to make sure my form looks good. I can definitely make some improvements on the speed of my pushups and squats. I don't know why, but the intensity of the workout caught me by surprise. Gotta work on pacing, I think. Looking forward to L1D2...
edit: just realized in my excitement to start I actually did L3D1... Gonna step it down for Wednesday :)
