Woohoo. I'm putting it down to my black wooly hat, as per the model in Convict Conditioning (CC). Clearly it conveys great power.
I did 2 sets of 5 for pullups, alternating chins (which I define as palms facing away) and pullups (palms facing towards so more bicep involvement). I'm doing them strict- no kipping. That took about a minute. 2 sets of 10 for pushups, which was great until I remembered on second set it should be 21 in total. The last one was an effort - I'm doing them in CC style with elbows tucked firmly to sides so triceps getting the brunt of the effort. Not that my long monkey arms are going to bulk up any no matter how hard I hit 'em.
Squats were a piece of cake. All those hours as a kid standing in various karate stances for 10+ mins must have paid off. Again - skinny but deceptively strong.
Level 2 - day 1 awaits. 20 mins of hell? Probably but looking forward to it.
Positives: most of the pullups were chins, with only every 5th one being a pullup (palms facing). Form was good on all reps. Pushups did not pose any challenge whatsoever
Negatives: decided to try and do 2 pullups instead of 1 for each round. Bad idea - by the 5th round I was struggling and had to revert to 1 - as I would have failed what would have been my 10th rep. That took it out of me to the extent I'd only done 11 rounds by the end of the first 10 mins.
Once I hit 20 rounds I relaxed a bit more, and then just set myself. "Just 5 more" target. I could possibly have made 35 with a bit more speed - My squats were pretty slow towards the end. I am feeling the effects of this already and expect to be sore again tomorrow. Day 1 hit me harder than the other 2 days for the first level and I expect that's how it will be again. I hate day 1 :)
Actually I've Got into yoga a few years back but becoming a dad has put the kibosh on my fitness endeavors these last few years. So I Awww... Anyway I'll try to get back in again and Keep my self Fit and Smart.
