I'm pretty new to this whole exercise thing, I'll be honest. 70kg, not sure of exact height (a little over 6ft) so my BMI (Body Mass Index - that's pretty much the only piece of jargon I know) is fine, but more of that is gut than I'd like and there certainly isn't much muscle.
I'm therefore starting at level 1, just completed Day 1 today (woo). Had to use assisted pull-ups, of the step-up-on-something-and-lower-yourself-slowly variety. Pretty sure my form isn't too great in general either, but hopefully that'll improve with practise, knowledge and core strength.
I'm hoping to combine this SimpleFit stuff with the Couch to 5km Running Program
, alternating days and taking one rest day a week. I started running yesterday.
So here's my log so far:Day 1 (4/7/12)
W1D1 of C25K
Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.Day 2 (5/7/12)
L1D1 20 reps in 20 minutes. Definitely had some trouble with the pull-ups.
