first week...

L3D1- 24
L3D3- 3:03

Booya! In your face last week!

Il admit though day 1 I substituted squats for *2 crunches due to a leg injury. Seemed okay D3 though. I should add I cycle many miles each week and double that at the weekend. I have legs like parma hams! I found the squats a nice break between the pull ups and press ups of D3!

:D :D

Welcome :D

I also ride my bike every other day and love it. This supplementary cardio helps when you reach higher levels : I remember I first wondered why there was a 3 minutes pause btw rounds at Day 2, when I reached L4 it became pretty obvious :lol:

Anyway, have fun !

yep :)

exercises and workouts are detailed here :

http://www.simplefit.org/details.html

Relevant extract ( applied to Level 1 ) :

Day 2 (strength) - "5 rounds for time:"
2 pull-ups
6 push-ups
10 squats

Do 2 pull-ups, then 6 push-ups, and finally 10 squats to complete one round. See how quickly you can complete each of the 5 rounds, resting approximately 3 minutes between each round. Do not count the rest time in your total time.

Ouch!

Dammit, seemed to have hit a plateau...I feel press ups are getting slightly easier though.
