I'm a 20 year old male in college just looking for an easy to follow workout plan. I love pullups and pushups, and simplefit has plenty of those, so it looks like i came to the right place. I'm coming off of not doing anything for 2 weeks, started at level 1 to see where im at.


Goal: To see my muscles better. For now size isn't really important to me

68 rounds, i was tired but could've kept going for a while, maybe i should level up?

EDIT: added background information on myself

Decided to move up a level

R1 - 0:33
R2 - 0:35
R3 - 0:36
R4 - 0:37
R5 - 0:33


still pretty easy. hate to keep moving up levels because the later levels (especially the timed days) look pretty treacherous, but i think im going to skip L2D3 and just move on to L3D1 because i know i can get D3 in less than 5 minutes easy

I'm at L3 and close to beating it and my best L1D1 is less than half of what you just did. Maybe you should start at L5D1?

Thanks for the response! It's nice being able to compare to someone else. I think I'll go with L4D1 tonight so I'll have at least some base before moving higher

34 Rounds, alternated between pullups, chinups, and neutral grip round to round.
Sequence was 3 rounds and 50s-1min rest
Pushups and squats weren't a problem, but pullups/chins/neutral were near failure
much more tired than i was on my first day

been pretty busy with moving back home (my try at an excuse), will do a workout later today.

EDIT: added in workout

R1 - 1:48
R2 - 1:44
R3 - 1:37
R4 - 1:35
R5 - 1:29


Instead of trying to make it through as quickly as possible, I slowed it down to make it harder on myself. Rested 3 minutes between rounds. Switched between pullups and chins every round.
Rounds got progressively faster as i had to start speeding up my pushups (they were still challenging but i was getting too close to failing)

Going to start watching what i eat. i hate counting calories, plus its pretty hard when my mother still cooks me dinner :) so im going to just write how i ate on a current day (good, okay, bad, etc). its not super accurate, but on a regular basis you can tell if you ate well or not that day

How I ate: Decent
