First Day

Background:

Male (Minneapolis Area) , 43 yo, 5'8", 33in waist, 178 lbs. Decent shape. (I would guess between 10-20% BF). I could stand to lose another 10-20 lbs and add some more muscle. I've lost a lot of weight over the last 2 years (I was 265 lbs as recently as 12/2008---you can change your life fairly quickly. (265 is not a typo).

I like to try a new workout program every 90-180 days.

Discovered Simplefit at Mark Sisson's site. I like to keep things simple, so I'll give it a try. Seems like a cool idea: You, pull up bar and gravity, that's all you need.

L1D1: 44 Rounds.

Welcome aboard!

44 rounds is great result. You'll level up in no time, or, you could just bump yourself up to level 4 or 5 right now.

Thanks Cheapo. It was your post of 4/23/2010 at Mark's site that convinced me to give SF a try. Very impressive change on your part.

I'm going to take one level at a time and see how it goes. Step by step is good (That is how I've treated this whole turnaround thing-one step at a time).

L1D3 2 Minutes 2 Seconds.

Normally I do a descending set of intervals after my 'main' workout (4 Minutes of Burpee-Pull Ups, 3 Minutes of Burpees, 2 Minutes of Jump Squats, 1 Minute of lateral jump Squats)...skipped this AM since I'm feeling a little 'under the weather'. Perhaps later.

Jonathan: Thanks dude.

This post is for 12/27/2010:

Level 4 Day 1: 28 Sets (Due to system issues, not able to record on 12/27).

Will be doing L4D2 shortly then some sprints.
