Hey KTG - I took pretty decent breaks, between 2-4 minutes (I was trying to get some chores done as it was late at night ha). Is that ok?

I think breaks are fine but you should include them in your total time.

As I understand you do not include breaks in day 2's timing. KTG?

Maybe I'm doing it wrong, I just put the total time it takes me on D2.

There are a lot of different approaches to D2. The "official" way to do it is with 3 minute rests, which are not counted towards the D2 time. Some people don't use the clock at all on D2, using it to really focus on form.

I do focus on the clock on D2, but try to maintain perfect form. I've started to use the rest times/round times as another indicator of progress and a way to mark incremental improvements between the big level jumps. I used to do roughly two minute rests, and then would meander back to the pull-up bar when my two minutes was up. More recently I've become much more strict. I did strict two minute rests until I got each round (L5) down to under 1 minute. Then I went to strict 90 second rests. Just last week I got back down to 1 minute per round with 90 second rests. If I hadn't leveled up I would have cut that down to strict 75 second rests next. As I get into level six I intend to continue the same approach. I'll start with strict 3 minute rests until I get each round down to 1 minute, then I'll shorten the rests and try to beat the time back down. But, again, for me, despite the clock, form has to be perfect for D2.

Thanks for the response. Awesome. I get the focus on form for D2. Love this workout.

Thanks for pointing that out to me. Looking forward to some rest on D2 next week.

L5 D1 - 20 rounds. One less than last time. Felt like I should've gone a bit harder in the first 5 minutes or so. Pushed hard at the end.
