Hello,

Newb here at the forum, found out about it when I read a post over at Marks Daily Apple. I believe it was cheapos. Anyway I'm 27 yo 228lbs. been weightlifting on and off for about 10 years. About 3 months ago a friend asked me to do pull ups with him and i couldn't manage more than 5 decent ones. came to the realization that being able to bench press 315lbs means nothing if you can't handle your own bodyweight. So i started trying various calisthenic routines, but once i found this site, i decided to stick with it till i make it through level 8 and go from there.

Week 1 training:

5/2 L1D1
27 rounds + 2 push ups
thought i would do better, but pull ups were killin me and my form was shitty

after w/o
100 sit ups/ 100 leg lifts

5/4 L1D2
5:58:17
probably could have moved quicker, but my form was good on all exercises, i even got my 18 month old daughter to do squats with me.
after- 100 sit ups/ 100 leg lifts


5/5
- ran 2.25 miles not timed

5/6 L1D3
4:15:39 after w/o 100 sit ups/ 100 leg lifts

did 6 pull ups to begin, but then had to drop off the bar and finish with singles which was tough. push ups and squats were easy. on to level 2!
