L2D3 in 4:50, which surprised me. Moving on to level 3.

Did two full pullups, then 33 negatives with mixed grips, followed by the pushups and squats.

I want to work in some body rows using my chinup bar. Any suggestions on some not-to-expensive but adjustible rings, or a way to make my own?

The 2nd chinup is usually a struggle and not to pretty. Also, I went running the night before and my legs were sore today, so the squats hurt a little more than usual.

Better Endurance than last time. Less rest required.

Great progress, Davarm!!

Might I suggest next week that you take one week off and drop down to level 1 for one week. You'll be surprised at how much stronger you've becomed when you compare your new level 1 results to your original level 1 scores... and it will give you body a bit of time to recover before you tackle another week of level 3.

The goal should be trying to get all of your pull-ups done without subs. KEEP IT UP!!

Thanks djjd5000. That is my plan...do one more week of level 3 then go down to level 1 for a week.

I also want to incorporate body rows into the routine, and made a set of straps. I might stick with negatives for the time being, until I peak, which is bound to happen sometime in the future.

Completed L3D3 yesterday in 5:29. Thought I posted already, but looks like it disappeared.

Actually started out with 4 pullups, then negatives for the remainder. I was sucking wind pretty hard at the end.

Next week (starting tomorrow hopefully), I will go back to level 1 for a week.
