Day 3, Level 1 - Saturday November 14

Completed in 4 mins, 57 seconds. Had to rush the squats to get under the 5 min mark...

Does this mean I am ready for level 2 or should I stick with level 1 for another week?

** Also - correction on Day 2, Level 1 -- I accidently counted the rest time... taking the rest time out makes around 7 mins and 17 seconds.

I completed my first week of simplefit! Yeah!!

whether to level up after you've done D3 under 5 mins , is a personal choice.
my approach is to do another week on the same lvl.
given the fact that you've just managed to get in under 5 mins, coupled with the fact that you had to rush your squats (you could have compremised form), i'd definately do another week of L1.

Thanks Ruli -- I'll play it safe and do another week of level 1, focusing on form.

Day 1, Level 1 - Monday November 16

23 rounds in 20 mins - 20 complete pull-ups (for the most part), the remainder were substitutions of jumping up and holding myself in the pull-up position for as long as possible.

be careful with that pain that you are experiencing. although not quite the same, i had a similar experience a while ago, just on the inside of my arm. turned out to be tendinitis. the result - i had my last workout on the 10th august. been resting the injury ever since to heal it. i'm almost ready to start SF again though.

Hmmm... Thanks for the advice Ruli,

How would one go about minimizing the chances of this happening? Do I stop the workout now? What can I do to make sure I can continue to do simplefit without injury?

unfortunately i do not have an answer to that question - i asked the same question a while ago in anticipation to my "return" to SF.
i wouldn't stop if i were you. your injury is on the outside of your arm, which suggest that is is more than likely not tendinitis.

Day 2, Level 2 - Thursday December 3

I think it took me around 11 mins to complete all five reps for level 2, not including rest time... definitly was a challenge. Oucho!
