Just starting out after a few month hiatus from the gym. Love the idea of using your own bodyweight to gain fitness (not just beefy muscles). No idea where I stand, so I'm starting with Level 1 Day 1:

L1D1 - 24 Rounds

"L1D2 - 3:44"

Is that each of the 5 rounds added together?

Hey Bart,

you are correct. The way this is done is that you do one round and rest for 3-5 minutes between each round. Only time the portion that you are actually doing each round.

I've taken the last few days off (simplefit wise) because of my recent activity level: Since I've posted, I've been surfing two days in a row, played tennis for a few hours yesterday, and today I decided to get back on the program and continue with L2D2.

L2D2 - 4:21

Mixing it up with other stuff is great, give your body time to fully recover.

Update for everyone! I had my biceps measured and I grew half an inch!! I'm currently now at 14.5" biceps!

L3D1 - 32 Rounds

-30 second break for every 5 rounds (included in the total time)
-Every other round I switched from pull-ups to chin-ups

Totals: 64 pull-ups, 96 push-ups, 160 squats

-Thoughts on a protein drink right after workout? Anyone have any great ab exercises (perhaps with the pull-up bar?), I feel that my stomach (gut) is the thing that is holding me back the most. Thanks!

Post workout I use this http://www.jarrow.com/product-182 blended with some fruit preferably something with more glucose than fructose so it goes into muscle glycogen stores instead of liver.

More on fructose verses glucose

glycogen

There is allot of debate regarding weather post exercise insulin spiking is healthy or if it is just a way to sell products
