Day 1 Lvl 1: 38 Rounds

Also got in an 8.5 km jog/sprint before I tried this.

Just a bit about me. 51, male, Canadian, eh...lol. Been on my fitness journey for a little over 4yrs. Majority of my workouts are made up by myself about an hour before I do them. Most if not all of my workouts had a mix of resistance via Kettlebells, dumbbells and body weight as well as a cardio component from sprints to jogging to hiking with a weighted vest.

At 47 I was 237lbs (I am 5 11) with a 42 inch waist and in horrible shape. Decided to smarten up and now I am at 178, 30 inch waist and no plans on stopping anytime soon. Realized that fitness is a life long commitment and that the commitment is 90% of staying on track.

I've been looking for something different &'simplistic to try and stumbled across this and said, what the heck. Still battling the temptations of food - junk food, so thank goodness Christmas is over. So, hello, good to be here and we will see how this goes.

Just a question, do a lot of you do other things on the days inbetween, eg, run, sprint, jog, wal, hike?

Welcome to the fold! Great to see another person starting up. I just started week 2 along side a C25K program and I am really loving it. 38 rounds is awesome! I just managed to eek out 34 rounds on L1D1, but this is my second week doing it.

NICE! I'm planning on sticking with some sort of cardio as well on my off days. Prob a mixture of everything.
Thanks for the welcome!

38 rounds is a terrific start. You'll move up a couple of levels pretty quickly. Be assured, it will get tougher.

I also focus on cardio stuff in between, but I also try to do some more pull-up work on my D1's and more push-up work on my D2's. Lately, I've been throwing a little misc. gym work in as well. Simplefit serves as the driving motivation. I do some of the other stuff hoping it will help with my Simplefit times.
