L5D2=5:01

Way better than I expected!

Neutral grip pull-ups on all but last set. Last set chin-ups. No substitutions! Still working on pull-up form and trying to be sure to clear the bar.

I also noticed some "lats" when reaching for a toothbrush the other day! :D

L5D3=9:30

Tried to do as many pull-ups as possible. Used two sets of bodyweight rows and a few jumping pull-ups to finish.
Had to break up the push-ups due to neck strain.
Squats: one long set.

Looks like I'll repeat Level 5 next week!

Second week of:
L5D1=20 rounds

I'm still working on pull-up form! Subbed last few rounds by barely pushing up with my toes, and them slowly dropping to full extension.

2 additional rounds =About a 12% improvement over last week.

Second week of:
L5D3=8:59

An improvement over last week by roughly 30 seconds.
First 10 pull-ups done neutral grip. Then jumping pull-ups to 20 (3x=1 rep). Five sets of bodyweight rows (3x=1 rep) then one last set of jumping pull-ups.

I strained my neck doing the last pull-ups, that really slowed me down on the push-ups. I had to stop at least 3 times and wait for the pain to subside. This has been a problem for a while; I push to bust out my push-ups and strain the back of my neck. Then, it's a 30 second break before I can start again, and that doesn't last long before I have to stop again. I'm pretty sure it's just because of muscular tension. If I were stronger (and learned to relax the muscles I'm not using!) I would be fine.

Squats were one long set.

Still working on pull-up form. Push-ups are not due to lack of arm/chest strength or form, just neck strain.
Squats going great!

Looks like I've found where I need to be!

I'll repeat Level 5 next week!

Third week of:
L5D1=22 rounds

A 10% increase over last week! Still working on pull-up form, first 5 rounds chin-ups, all others neutral grip pull-ups. In the last half I still had to boost myself a little with my toes, lowered slowly from top on those.

Rest week!

This week I'm doing something different for my rest: M,W,F, I'll do "laddered burpees."
I start by doing a set of 10 burpees, then rest for 1 minute; then 9 burpees, 1 one minute rest; 8, 1 minute, etc., down to 1 burpee at the end.

I'm doing this to give my neck some time to R&R!

I have to say, today's round of burpees were way easier than the last time I did them eight weeks ago!

Week 4 of:
L5D1=22 rounds

Same as before rest week! I'm going to claim: holidays, too much laying around, too much food, etc., etc., etc. :oops:

But, hey! No neck strain! Woot!

I'll keep at it! Looking forward to next year to really see some progress!

Wek 4 0f:
L5D3= 7:47

Woo-hoo! Taking a rest week for my neck pain really paid off! I didn't have to stop due to pain during push-ups. I still stopped for rest breaks.

Looking forward to next week! :D
