Day 12 (L3D3): 6:47

Pull-ups: 6+5+3+2; Push-ups: 17+10+6; Squats: 33

Maybe I could do it twice but this time I've just added 3 series of 5 chin-ups.

One more week on L3 then.

Terrific progress! That's a nice division on the L3D3 pull-ups. You'll only need to add 1 more to each pull-up set for L4D3.

Day 13 (L3D1): 21 rounds

Satisfied with this little improvement. It's the same I did on my second try for level 1. Hope to pass to level 4 next week. We'll see.

Hey, KTG, thank you. I hope I can repeat this kind of performances.

Day 14 (L3D2): 3:45 (2 minutes rest) + 5x5 chin-ups (1 minute rest)

It wasn't easy but it felt like too little work so I added this 5x5 chin-ups. With this addition total workout time was about 20 minutes.

Day 15 (L3D3): 4:59

Pull-ups: 8+5+3 Push-ups: 20+9+4 Squats: 33.
Hard, hard, hard.
After some rest I've added 5+5+4 chin-ups with 1 minute rest. My intention was 3x5 but I've failed the last one.

I'm going up a level anyway, yeah \o/

Day 18 (L4D3): 8:09

Pull-ups 8+6+4+2 + Push-ups: 20+12+9 + Squats: 41

Thas was harder than day 2. The last push-ups were the worst part. A lot of shaking and almost reaching failure. But it was good.

Great job on leveling up! Looks like a strong start for level 4. D3 is always the hardest for me, as well.

Thank you. The last d3s were fairly easy but this time it was really hard. Now I'm taking a 5 days break because I can feel I need to rest. I'll be back next monday for a new attempt on level 4.

Well, here I am, almost ten days later and not totaly recovered. I have some pain in my left shoulder and it hurts when I do push-ups.

I think I'm going to restart simplefit easy, with substitutions for the push-ups.

Maybe tomorrow. I don't know.

Sorry to hear about the injury. I think it is critical to take as much time as it needs. Staying injury free is critical to the overall progress.

(Note, however, that I'm something of a hypocrite on this issue--I'm always pushing back too soon, too fast).
