Been doing this workout for nearly 4 weeks now (started on a L1 D2 (Wednesday).

Using the android app to log my workouts but thought i'd join the community.

I started at pretty much bang on 11st

I'm around 11st 3lb now.

27/3 L1 D2: 3:30
01/03 L1 D3: 5:45
03/03: L1 D1: 22 rounds
05/03: L1 D2: 03:33
07/03: L1 D3: 4:39

Level Up

Week off - Illness

17/03 L2 D1: 27 rounds
19/02 L2 D2: 06:07
22/03 L2 D3: 04:33

Level Up

24/03: L3 D1: 20 rounds
26/03: L3 D2: 06:37
28/03: L3 D3: 05:56

Disappointed I couldn't level up this afternoon, but 1 min off isn't too much time to claw back, hopefully crack it in the next 2 weeks?

I guess these level ups are going to get tougher and tougher and take longer to crack.

I want to build muscle and a bit of size doing these work outs (I'm 6'1" and very lean) would like to get to 12st really.

Well if you are looking to add some size don't forget to eat lots of good calories greens, and lots of meat. There is also the GOMAD diet if you can find some good quality milk where you are. Don't be too concerned with the not making it to the next level this time. Your body is just adjusting at it own pace. I bet if you will pass to the next level soon. Good luck with your training! Oh man you made me do math 1 stone = 14lbs so 11st 3lbs = 157 lbs. Once suggestion as far as diet goes try not to just eat everything under the sun. This leads to dirty bulking and can have ill effects on your body composition and heart health and lots of other things. If you are gonna eat alot make sure it is healthy eating with lots of water.

I am eating very well. I'm not solely focused on size, I just want to get stronger and be able to level up lots.

Size will come with strength, so if I'm leveling up regularly I'll know I'm eating OK and getting stronger.

01/04 L3D1: 27 Rounds

An improvement of 7 rounds on last week, and it felt easier to do the chin ups. I did fail on the last attempt though at doing pull ups, still had plenty of strength left for press ups.

Can really feel the ache in my lats/arms/chest today so doing something right!

L3 D2: 4:45

That's nearly 2 mins off my previous time last week. Fingers crossed for Saturday!

I am getting a real nasty pop/click in my wrist when doing overhand/pull ups. No problems with chin ups at all.

It doesn't hurt, but is quite a shocking sensation. Suggestions?

I'm trying to do majority pull up rather than chin up as it concentrates on the back more than the biceps.

Well I had a week off due to a tight schedule, and also changed my smartphone so have lost some data.

My next workout will be L4 D3 but I won't be doing it tomorrow as I will be very hungover. Next chance maybe Saturday morning.

Sorry I missed your post on the 3rd. Had I seen it I would have made a suggestion to do your pullups on the rings if you have them. The only reason I state this is because they allow for different movement patterns. Also good luck on your L4D3!

Well I got absolutely hammered and felt sick for a week, then was ill for another 4 weeks :/ recovered now and back on the simplefit.

Started where I left off kind of, with L4 D1 on Monday. Did 21 rounds in 20 mins, and still aching in the chest today.

Did L4 D2 today, and took me 8 mins. with the 4th and 5th rounds I struggled with the pressups, had to do 2 x 6 instead with 30 sec break inbetween.

L4 D3 on Saturday, no chance of levelling up, think I'll have to keep training on this level until I can ace the 5 x 12 push ups without breaking the sets down.

Glad I haven't lost much strength at all though.
