New here. My husband and I started this last night. We are both pretty fit (just love food/wine a little too much :D.) He was able to do some pull-ups, but I was not, so I substituted body rows with a straight bar.

Week 1

Wednesday, January 7, 2009


39 rounds!!! I was pretty surprised. We took the first few kind of slow, then kind of got into the zone. I was really looking forward to the end in the last 5 minutes though.

Great start Tara!

Are you subbing 3 body rows = 1 pullup? That's an awesome first L1D1 number.

Is the hubby going to post a workout log here?

Have fun and welcome!!!!

Thanks!!! Yes, I did do the 3-1 and no I doubt he will be posting a log. I am the more compulsive list maker type of the two of us.

Thanks again for the encouragement.

38 rounds!!!!

Again, hubby did some pull ups, then switched to 3 inverted bar rows and I did 3 ibr's for the whole thing.

We followed up with abs: side plank, table-top balances, and ball planks.

Tired and sweaty now :o

We followed with abs; two sets of side planks, table-top balances, and ball planks.

We just finished L3D1. We both did 6 inverted body rows and got 34 rounds. Those 3 extra rows really wore me out.

We followed up with abs (roman chair leg lifts and weighted ball twists.)

Well, it was L3D3 today. 48 body rows are killer. My wrists have started to hurt, so I may have to start strapping in on day 3, because there are so many. At least it is done for this week.

Me: 3 min 17 sec

Hubby: 2 min 33 sec

We followed with 2 sets of abs (roman chair, weighted ball twists, reverse leg lifts.)

Week 4, Day 1

I was not at all motivated to do this; have been feeling grumpy and just over all disgruntled today, but I made myself do it and I am so glad I did....

L4D1 - 35 Rounds!!!!!!!!! :D

We followed up with abs (mountain climbers*, roman chair twists, ball roll-outs.)

*I tried to do these on the ball at first, but could not get my balance and ended up doing them on the floor.

We are going out of town tomorrow for the weekend and are hoping to get D2 & D3 in at the hotel.
