Well, I think we're all better with imaginary numbers...

Mike you might consider getting a weighted vest to add resistance or looking at the week 2 workouts as well if you are super lean and your main goal is mass.

Great work as always.

The "Oh dear!" was directed at vbm's wonderfully dry wit.

L3D1: 46 rounds.

Overall, this is a rather large drop from my 60+ stuff from before.... oh well.

In reality, if we're going for number of each exercise, we've got:

L1: 65 rounds: 65 Pull-ups, 130 push-ups, 195 squats.
L2: 61 rounds: 61 Pull-ups, 183 push-ups, 244 squats.
L3: 46 rounds: 92 Pull-ups, 138 push-ups, 230 squats.

...ok, so the math lesson didn't prove anything in particular.... but I guess it does show that I lose on the pull-up level... they take so long that everything else is kinda sacrificed, eh? Oh well....

Those are some very impressive numbers Mike!

You are doing a lot more pullups, I would imagine your pushup and squat numbers will be back up there again once your body adjusts to the extra pullups.

Didn't I tell you to get thee to a higher level already? :wink:

What the math shows is that pull-ups take more out of you, that's correct.
You're still doing great!

Is your goal more rounds in the sequence or higher reps of the movements?

92 pullups in one workout isn't great, it is unbelievable to a lot of us. That is a 2 - 3 year goal for me. I normally don't advise any level jumps as I think we all should make our own decisions about that. But, if I posted those numbers, I'd consider even higher levels. See if you don't smoke L3D3.

Strength before strength endurance.

I'm back!

Postby Mikerobe007 » Tue Nov 13, 2007 11:35 am

Well, after a timely break (classes resumed, summer breaks, etc.), I'm back at it, and decided to start over again. Wow, aren't I fun?

Anyway, first two weeks went something like this:

L1D1 - 70 rounds
L1D2 - 2:02
L1D3 - 0:59

L2D1 - 63 rounds
L2D2 - 2:29
L2D3 - 1:18

And just today, I got 50 rounds on L3D1. Of course, I did this by kinda cheating... "Oh, I'll do five rounds every two minutes, that way, I'll get a 20-30 second break in between rounds". Well... it worked, I suppose. I beat my old record, at any rate.

Man, do I hate day ones.
