Great! Better than your last D1, even if it's a level up!

Thanks guys! Thats the first D1 I've tackled in a few weeks so I was pretty pleased with the results.

I've decided to slip an extra workout into the week, simply because I have the time these days. I think I'm gonna alternate between tabatas and cardio (and probably some of the alternate workouts). I'll give it a few weeks to see how it feels, if its too much I'll cut it back down to 3 days/week.

Last night was tabatas...
Total reps:
Pushups - 61
Squats - 90
Situps - 57 (I think. I kind of forgot how to count by that point.)

I was gonna do tabatas on the bike but my legs were pretty toasted from the squats. Next time I may try doing the squats first so I have a bit more time to recover. I decided not to include pullups yet, don't want to do any damage.

Tabatas sound pretty cool. I think I'll do some of those on a fourth workout day each week with exercises like dumbell cleans, and dips that we don't do in the regular simplefit workout.

And...
Tabata Planks - not much to score here but I'll give them an 11 on the suck-o-meter!!

Nice work.

Not sure of the benefits of tabata planks, at least not with strict adherence to the 20/10 protocol.

Yeah it is more of an active rest torture thing :)

Yeah, I was gonna do tabata situps but for some reason changed my mind. It was still a good workout but I don't think it really benefited from doing them as tabatas.

Anyways...
L4D3 - 6:26
Bike 5 miles - 19:21

L4D3 - 6:26 ...exactly the same as last week which is a bit of a disappointment since the week started out so good. Oh well, rest week next week... I think I might try some GTG with pullups, they are still by far my weak point.

GTG worked wonders for my pullups!
