I partially agree, but I'm a bit worried about lack of progress in the other "events." Even if D1 is a challenge, D2 and 3 are quite a bit easier, and the squats are too easy

Yeah, I did that on D1 also this time, by doing pushups really strict. I'm also considering one-legged squats as an alternative.

I'm the antagonist of vbm, I moved on while doing bodyrows. Sure, I moved about 4 weeks early (because negatives were not being counted right, bodyrows cleared that up), but I still would have moved on before doing a single pull-up. Since the number of pull-ups in D1 don't increase except on odd number levels, moving up to an even number level ensures a challenge while still coming up to snuff on pull-ups. At level 3, being on pull-ups for at least 1/2 of them is important just for the shear number 3:1 creates.

My 3 cents (I'm wordy).

more than W3, but zero breaks - oh except that one moment when i lost my balance doing my one legged weighted squats. Subbed 3:1 shower frame pulls. Alternated wide and narrow push-ups.


Pardon me for yelling. Next week I may just try L2 out to see, cuz the push ups and squats really just fillers between the almost pull-ups. Well, okay at the end of the work outs the pushups are more than just fillers, but the squats meh, don't phase me.

Antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, and anti-retroviral drugs, here we come. Sigh. Three weeks yesterday and I'm done!

Oh, and I'm down five pounds.

Oh, and triceps make a recurrent appearance in my mirror viewings.

Oh, and since I resumed exercising last May (after a 4 year hiatus, boycotting exercise because after I quit dancing I was convinced that nothing would be as good) my resting heart rate has gone down by 10 or 12 beats per minute (excpet when I think about my pending exams... breath... all is well).


Look at that!

Oh I'm gonna post a cool trick in the food log page... check it out if you wanna!

You can place your images in a few places, such as or, then copy the web address of the image (most of the sites will give you that info, or you can right-click on the image itself and choose 'View image', then copy the URL from your address bar at the top of the browser.

You then copy that URL into your post, highlight, and click the Img button above the textbox you type in. This will post your image within your message.

Hope that helps, time for bed!
