Been looking for something simplefit-ish for ages, and saw a link to SF in Grumpy Caveman's sig on Mark's Daily Apple last week.
Initial thoughts are that it's close to what I used to do by myself but has more structure so maybe I'll stick to it - a year ago I was doing twice-weekly sessions of dips, squats, pull-ups, push-ups and sprints but I think I just got bored and lazy. I like the levels idea, and the variation across days is good.
I do a little bike riding and running (bike to work and back, not far, and run somewhere between 4km and 10km twice a week). But I have no upper body strength at all, so hoping SF can fix that up. I can just barely do two pull-ups at the moment, so I'm concentrating more on form that anything else at the moment .. not really timing anything just yet. I feel like when I can do L1 properly I'll start timing.
Diet is a variation on primal/low carb, has been that way for 2 years, lost 30kg in the first year. Not pudgy any more but certainly not in the shape I'd like to be either.
So, to catch up the worklog:
Started with D2 cause it was late in the week. And I didn't like the look of D1 out of the gate!
L1D2 - was hard, was very sore after, didn't read the "rest between sets" line properly, so didn't.
L1D3 - was hard, didn't time a thing. Did tiny sets of 2 or three, and just kept plugging away.
L1D1 - around 21 rounds (using subs for pull-ups after 5, subs for pushups after 13).
L1D2 - was fine with this. lots of rest. form was a bit rough towards the end (leaning on my dominant side). untimed.
L1D3 - to come!
All in all, 1.5 weeks in .. not sore, and very much noticing the difference in my shape already. Looking forward to that continuing.
