Hey guys,
Just did my first workout yesterday, have been doing kettlebells for the last three months, but really want to work on bodyweight exercises right now.
LEVEL ONE
Week 1-Day one
29 rounds for 20 minutes
First five rounds I did proper full dead hang pull ups and the rest of the rounds were done band assisted. I was pretty happy with my push up technique, been flaring my elbows out for years but now I am concentrating on keeping them in nice and tight.

I just realized with my assisted pull ups that I should have been doing 3 instead of just one, oh well I'm going to be redoing level one anyway so I will just finish out the week properly and work on it again next week.

3:18 total time
I really enjoyed today, mostly because I was able to get proper pull ups for all five rounds without having to resort to assistance. It will be interesting to see how many pull ups I can do on day 3, probably break them into separate sets to get a little rest.

Level 1 day 3
Pull ups-2.2,1
Assisted pull ups-6,3,3,2,1
Push ups-5,5,5,3.3
Squats-21
Time:8:03

It definitely does not help to be carrying the extra bodyfat but 3 months ago I couldn't do one pull up. Looking forward to next week and I can start this cycle all over again and see where I am at on level one day one.

Week 2
L1D1
21 rounds
I did the round properly this time, when I switched to assisted pull ups i did 3 for every one push up.this reduced my total rounds of course but I did manage 8 rounds with a full pull up as opposed to last week of 5 full pull ups.
Went pretty well I thought, looking forward to Wednesday.

Week 2
L1D2
:38
:36
:33
:32
:32
Total time=2:51
first round was the same time and improved time on last four. I think my push ups were faster, I felt stronger doing them. Managed to get all my pull ups in but they are definitely the weak link.

I just bought the primal blueprint a couple of days ago so today is the first day of eating a different way, hope to lose some bodyfat and have at least some of the results that Cheapo has had.

I weigh 192lbs, started watching my calories in February when I weighed 207lbs. I am using the simplefit android app on my phone to keep track of my workouts, it's pretty handy to have.

You blew day three out of the water! Excellent work on the un-assisted pull-ups...those definitely seem to be the most difficult part for most people around here.
