Level 2

Day 1

1 Pull Up: 1 Horizontal Pull Up (I need something better I was using a metal rod and furniture to do this and it didn't feel very safe)

2 Push ups: 16 of them. (Girl Push ups. Arms are really sore)

3 Squats: 30 I can barely stand.

I hope I filled it out right, and I did it right. As long as I am moving and working that all that matters I guess. I am still dripping with sweat after my first go. I am feeling pretty good too!

How would I report this to my workout log? It only says how many rounds I did. Would I put down my average rounds since I couldn't do the pull ups and my arms gave out for the push ups?

That doesn't look right.

Day 1 (endurance):
As many rounds of the prescribed exercises as possible in 20 minutes
At Level 1 that would be as many sets of:
  • 1 pull-up
  • 2 push-ups
  • 3 squats you can do in the allotted time.

You do 1 pull-up, then you do 2 push-ups, then you do 3 squats.
That's one round (AKA "set").
Repeat until 20 minutes have elapsed.

Read my complete primer.

I did what I could for the pull up and push ups. My arms became so sore but my legs could do more. I will start fresh again and make them easier to do. Like standing up and lean against the wall for the push up. I have no idea what I will do with the pull up. I will find a way.
