My goal is to utilize simplefit to prepare me for crossfit. I hope to go through all the simplefit levels and then make the transition. I workout with a partner and do not have a stopwatch so times are not super accurate.

Two friends and I did level 2 day 2 today. It was tougher than I thought it would be. Another simple but effective workout! Group average time was 7 minutes.

I think I might have messed up with the time...was using a regular wrist watch.
Going to say anywhere in between 5mins 15secs - 6mins.

L3D3: 6 mins 36 secs
I could not do all 16 pull-ups and had to do three negatives. Push-ups were hard, did sets of one after I got tired. I did all 33 squats without rest. Going to do L3 again after a rest week. I have only logged two weeks of simplefit and am due for a rest.

Did some hangs from the bar after workout. Did pronated, supinated, and mixed grip hangs from pull-up bar for as long as possible. After that partner 2's girlfriend went on a 1.6 mile walk with us. Partner 2 and I did an extra little jog after the 1.6 miles.

Went to the local park with my workout partners. We did sprints up and down the field. I don't have a stop watch so we just sprint down the field and walk back. Partner 1 felt sick like he was going to puke. Partner 2 and I stayed to play a game of 21 after partner 1 left. My left knee felt a little funny after the run.

L1D3: I did not time todays workout. It's a rest week and I know it was definitely under 5 minutes. No stopwatch.
Finished off with the same grip strength routine from last workout. Also did a fair amount of jump rope with workout partners. I watched some Buddy Lee (I think thats his name) video and it really improved my basic bounce with the rope. I feel like I will be able to do double unders soon.
Also whipped out my Precision Nutrition kit again! Honestly folks, I think this is pure gold. I bought it when it first came out and it was $100 I think. The forum is amazing...there are a ton of e-books, e-articles, routines, diets, and plenty of other great stuff. Reading through all this stuff again is really doing wonders for my motivation.
Tonight for example, I used one of John Berardi's strategies, the Sunday ritual. I bought about $13 worth of veggies and chopped half of them and stored them in plastic bags in my fridge. Makes meal prep a snap. I am unemployed and unfortunately have no money to purchase the food I would like to eat. So I try to stick to my PN guidelines (7 habits) as much as I possibly can. Feeling really good about training and nutrition right now. I have a small group of people really thinking about there health now. It's cool.
