Well, today starts my first workout. I quickly realized that I am much fatter then I used to be and maybe a little weaker. In high school I could do 10 pull ups with no problem, today I learned I could barely do 1. So today, I spent my entire workout jumping up and slowly letting my self down, instead of the traditional pull up. All in all, I got in 29 rounds in 20 minutes. I didn't take much rest in between rounds, just long enough to write it down.

We will see how this goes. Right now I am 36 years old at 6'2" and I weighed in at 235 lbs. If I can stick with it, this will be a fun ride.

Well I finished my first week. I finished my day 3 in 2 minutes and 49 seconds. Now, the pull ups are kicking my butt. I did do 2 normal pull ups and the other 8 I did using a one legged assist pull ups. The push ups and squats I had no problem. I don't want to move up a level until I can do 10 normal pull ups in the allotted time. I am definitely getting stronger, since on day 1 I could not do one complete pull up and now I did 2.

As of Friday November 8, I completed level 1. I came in at 3 min. and 58 seconds. I have now started level 2. It took me 6 weeks to be able to complete 10 pull ups. I did them in reps of 4, 2, 2, 2. The push ups and squats are not a problem, but to pull my fat butt up is.
