Weight: 178 lbs.

Week 1
09/25/2007 L1 D1 63 rounds
09/27/2007 L1 D2 1 minutes 57 seconds
09/29/2007 L1 D3 1 minute 20 seconds

=============Archived=============
I'm looking to lose body fat while maintaining muscle. I've been lifting off and on for the past year and now looking for a change. Started running 3 days a week to keep up cardio. These exercises seem like an excellent opportunity....and it's simple enough that you just concentrate on the 3 exercises. I love it!

All I can say is ouch...

I should also add that I'm using the Door Gym that you are able to just hook to the wall without drilling. Found it on eBay for a good price. Seems to work really well. I like that you are able to do underhand, overhand, and even side hand pull ups.

Be sure to walk allot the next day to get the lactic acid moving out of your system. Also you may want to take it easy the first couple of weeks. Contrast baths/showers can help as well as Epsom salts.

My arms are a bit sore, even feel it in my legs a little which is good. After the workout, I did go walking with my wife for about a mile. I seem to stand up straighter today... I need all the help I can get at 5'3" :D Oh, and my abs feel tighter too.

I was actually quite surprised I was able to to 50 on the first day. I was even resting in between rounds at the end. I like the fact that I can switch my pull up grips with the Gym Door. I think that helped to not tire me out.

I used to pole vault in high school many many years ago (10 years) and I'm no where near the shape I was in at that age. That and I'm about 50 pounds heavier. My ideal weight now will be around 155 lbs. I think I have definitely have gained muscle mass since then, now I just need to lose the fat.

Stats for day 2:
03/29/2007 L1 D2 2 minutes 32 seconds

Today seemed a little too easy. Are you able to mix levels or should you stay at the same level for each week?

I will move to level two starting on Tuesday. So far, I feel the first week went really well. Just need to find the right level right now.

Great work! Go up 1 level each week till you are finishing the d2-d3 workouts in 15-20 min.

I decided to go to level 3 today. I think I did okay, but definitely feel the burn on this one. Definitely will stay at this level for a couple of weeks.
