so figured id start a log finally. followed cheapo and mr. red here, seeing their progress/logs/determination is a good inspiration.
Im trying to use simple fit as a supplement to my morning gym routine, really love it so far. Ive always done pullups/pushups but having a program really helps kick it in gear....squats are my arch nemesis, but im loving getting better at them.

heres my progress so far.
loving seeing all the logs, and help is always welcomed.

Level 5. Day2-7:56

Level 5 Day3 10-9-09

level 6 day2
level 6 day 3 -9:49

level 6 day 1 -18 sets
level 6 day 2-15:36

level 6 day 1 -20 sets
level 6 day 2 – 12:55
level 6 day 3-8:47 (3:14 pullup 3:02: pushup 2:30 squat)

level 6 day 1 (first attempt friend came over and interrupted) 7 sets
second attempt 20 sets with 50 seconds to spare...but was feeling pretty dead.

few questions i have, all my pullups are static deadhang, no kips, does it matter? and on day 2 workouts i wasnt doing a rest period that ive seen in some other logs...just start the clock and go, do you stop the clock for the rest?

hi skullies.

kipping is permisable. i suppose it boils down to personal taste.

on D2 you must stop the clock after every round. unlike D1, you don't time your rest periods on D2 - the only timethat counts is the time that you actually work out.

awesome thanks for the clarification. Ill keep to deadhangs as long as im productive with them. really trying to be legit with form as much as possible.

excited to add rest on these day 2's haha, im sure that will make a difference.

by the looks of it, it made a huge difference, skullies.
you will note that a lot of people do D2 untimed. this is to concentrate on form and not be bothered by the clock. again, a personal choice.

Hey Ruli, it definitely made an impact...i liked the idea of keeping the clock on sort of as a challenge, but think i might do it untimed like you said. Just to get every rep SOLID. (may cap it at 20 minutes tho)

anyways, skipped day 3 last time, hangovers dont mix well with a ton of pullups etc..ha. :evil:

today i thought was gonna be rough since ive been pretty lax lately, still beat my last number which was nice

level 6 day 1-22

Hi Skullies,
I'm quite new to this, but I'm always trying something to get a little improvement each week. Last time I set my goal for Day 1 to be 3 rounds greater than the previous Day 1, from 27 to 30. So I divided the 20 minutes allowed on Day 1 into 30 segments of time, 40 sec per round. As I completed each round, I rested the remaining part of the 40 seconds before I did the next one. Does anyone have a different strategy that works for them?

Level 6 day 2- (yesterday) untimed, finished around 25 minutes or so with breaks and all that.
this was a lethargic day 2 and 3 for me....glad i did it though..but wasnt feeling 100%

Level 6 day 3-6:30

actually pretty happy with day 3 now lookin back at my previous times.

yesterday LEVEL 6 DAY 1- 18....poor effort, was real lazy when it came to the clock.

did ten sets afterwords untimed and some weights.

level 6 day 2 untimed.
felt big changes. really concentrated on deadlift pullups as much as i could, extending all the way down, take a moment, go back up.
