I'm new here, and have tried several (rather feebly, I must admit) different workout programs, and I do rather enjoy the structure of this one.

Apart from the fact that the last two days since my L1D1 have been agony...

Anyhoo, I'm doing this program to actually *gain* weight, as I'm very light (105 lbs) and need muscle more than anything. The excercises as such are made... easier... because of the lack of weight to lift, so my results really aren't comparable to most other peoples'.

L1D1: 65 rounds
L1D2: 2:15

Ah, so there's the 65-round man!

Welcome Mike!

With those results I'd say skip a few levels ahead, L1 won't give you much. Try for example L3D3 next, to see where you stand.

With regards to gaining weight, I wouldn't know much about it 8) but I'd think the proper diet would be vital, anyone?

yeah to gain muscle you need to eat allot, cut Aerobic, and try to stay close to the 5x5 range, use really aggressive angles or consider a weighted vest. Lots of rest.

Ross is great and he practices what he preaches, I got his never gymless book a while back and it is worth the money.

He makes some great points

-Forget Isolation
-Eat Big To Get Big
-Limit Aerobic Training
-Intense Conditioning

Great stuff

Once again Mike, I'd say you might as well skip a level or two, L2 won't give you much.

L2D1 : 61 rounds

Not bad seeing as that does end up with more push-ups/squats than the previous level, albeit the 4 less pull-ups.

Not so sure if skipping a couple of levels is all that wise - I'm completely exhausted from this one!

No wonder you're spent, 61 rounds equals 3 rounds a minute, it's a great endurance workout, but not so much for strength :-) But of course, do it the way you feel comfortable with :!:

Starting to get longer and just a *little* bit tougher now!

I'm also starting to smell worse.

You ain't got it tough...

If the smell is your own sweat, it's not bad, it's sweet

If it's something else, I'd get it checked out :wink: :D

:lol: That explains it!

Keep pushing. Those are still big numbers in my book. (And I know big numbers when I see 'em. Right, taifun?)
