Keep up the great work! Just keep trying and making little changes here and there especially with nutrition and you will get there!

Week 10 L1 D3: 3 min 45 sec

This is my last day on Level one. I may return one day if I decide to stop doing body rows and go back to real pull ups. Until then, Level 2 here I come.

End of day report:

I had a very active day today. After my workout this morning, we took the dog for a hike up to the top of Forest Park and back down. I don't know the stats on it, but I do know that my husband thought he was going to die. Then at 9 pm I felt a little amped up so I took the dog on a walk/run around a 4x4 block section of my neighborhood. Blocks in Portland are smaller than normal blocks.

Week 11. L2 D1: 33 Rounds.

I feel good. I don't feel overly exerted except for the fact that it's finally warm weather in Oregon and we don't have air conditioning.

Week 11, L2 D3: Six and a half minutes. 3 subbed body rows for pull ups. Push ups done on rings. Squats with 10 lb weights.

I don't think my abs are getting enough work on the rings. Maybe I'll move the push ups back down to the floor.

Hi Xtina

You are doing great!

I want to get me some of those rings, might have to get hubby to check out the posts on how to make them.

Anyway just as a curiosity how high are your rings when you do the pushups? It would seem that the rings should work your core more than doing pushups on the floor, unless its that bit of height difference? Lord knows mine get enough of a workout doing them with my hands on a raised platform anyways, thats why I prefer doing them that way then on my knees on the floor.

Good work!

How close to the floor are your rings?

Great work,

try putting the rings a little bit lower each time you will get way more ab is they go lower.

Is that my problem, the rings are too high? I'll get the husband right on to fixing that. Excellent :)

The rings should be adjustable, do you see the little buckles? Usually you can quickly adjust the elite rings so have the rings 3 inches off the floor for push ups, to chest height for dips, to above head for pull ups.

Ah, my husband engineered the rings himself. I see how mine are adjustable; I can do it myself but it's going to take a wrench. I don't think I have enough slack to go that low though.
Btw, I misspoke on my last post. It was day 2 not day 3. And I have to say my legs are very sore today, so I'm really pleased.

Today I went for a hike with the husband and the dog for about an hour in the woods. But my diet was crap from start to finish, so I feel like I didn't accomplish much. His idea of moderate eating is far different from mine.

There is an 'edit' button in the top right of your posts where you can adjust the misprint easily.
