DR03K's Training Log - (OLD2)

I love Simplefit, pullups/pushups/squats... that trio of exercises is seriously hard to beat, complete full body workout.

From following simplefit on and off for the last 4 or 5 years, I've come to a number of conclusions as to why I kept changing routines and not really getting the results I've been after.

I think it generally comes down to what our bodies best respond to, for me personally, it's slightly different variations of simplefit exercises.
As a "skinnyfat" type build, I want ideally a bigger upper chest, triceps and bigger biceps.

My modifications to simplefit:
Diamond Pushups instead of regular Pushups
Close Grip Chinups instead of regular Pullups.

Running and Cycling - as much as my time permits!

Going to start off on level 3 of simpefit and see how I get on.

Week 1

Week 1 (Week 1 of 1 L3) Modified SF Version.
L3D1: 30rds, L3D2: 04:42, L3D3: 03:59
Close Chin-ups: 9,3,3,1 (XX:XX)
Diamond Push ups: 18,4,5,4,2 (03:19) inc chinups
Squats: 33 (00:40)

Comments: Started Day1 on thursday, so ideally wanted to get training days completed faster to get back onto a M/W/F split, so did day2 and day3 on same day. Bit of a endurance day on Saturday, did day2 SF followed by 45min HIIT on bike, followed by 3.3mile run and ending with SF day3. Felt good.

Total miles run: 6.3 miles
Total miles cycled: 40.3 miles

Week 2 - SAVAGE!!

Week 2 (Week 1 of L4) Modified SF Version.
L4D1: 30rds, L3D2: 0X:XX, L3D3: 0X:XX
Close Chin-ups: (XX:XX)
Diamond Push ups: (XX:XX)
Squats: (00:XX)

Comments on day1: Brutal and savage mixed together. These Diamond pushups are destroying me; the last set on round 30 and my face literally smashed into the floor..
I gave it everything (had special motivation today... )

Best time on level 6 is 5:33, so will hopefully progress to 7 shortly!

Thrown in kettlebell work on offdays for additional conditioning.... losing spare weight does wonders for the pullups, feel so effortless (initially! !)

Awesome good job for losing the weight. I am trying to throw in some jogging just to do something more. I do like getting in yoga as well.

Just a quick post.
Basically I've been on holiday in the States (CT).. unable to find anything that remotely resembles a pullup bar...

Tried tree brances and even a kids playground.

Really frustrates me how dip and pullup stations are not a standard bit of equipment in parks etc!

Anyhow, been running 5 miles a day and just doing pushup variations as a kick start.
Will restart simplefit Mon 28th on level 4.
