Hello everyone. I'm Clay Davis. I want to be healthy so my goal is to go from 223 lbs to 185-190 lbs. I'm going to start out doing knee pushups, full squats and wall pullups. As I get stronger I will go up the levels of Convict Conditioning.

Here's a link to wall pullups if you want to see what they are.

Hey, I'm working on dropping to about 190 too. Can you do 1 regular push-up? Because you could start with regular and then go to knees once you were done with those. Another thing you could try is negative pull-ups, here's some other types of assisted pull-ups https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WvH8at_xJw

Thanks. I've done that a few times but this time will be different.

Thanks for the suggestions. I want to be consistent across the board so I'm going to do just knee pushups. When I finish I'll move up to pushups. Part of the reason I'm starting at the exercises I am is because when I tried this doing pushups and pull ups using a resistance band my elbows were none too happy.

That's a very nice start! I think phasing in with the CC approach is a great way to do it. Consistency is the key and then you'll start to see real results. (Also, of course, diet is the real key to health and weight-loss).

My coworker is moving to an apartment so she let me get her basketball goal. I spent about 15 minutes shooting around and doing layups. It was a good workout but my knees weren't too happy about it. It's probably because of my weight but I was playing in Vibram Five Fingers as well. I then switch to walking for 15 minutes. I live on a hill so coming up I can definitely feel it in my feet, calves and hamstring. My goal is to walk thirty minutes everyday.

I'm trying to follow the Primal Blueprint. My cooking skills are lacking so that's more of a challenge than working out.
