Nice job! 31 rounds is impressive.

Thanks! I think I could have done maybe three more but I had to find a towel for my pullup subs.

L1D2: 4:26 (subbing 3 body rows per pullup)

Thinking I'm gonna level up next week... my legs aren't fatigued at all.

L2D1: 38 rounds

again, no real leg fatigue but my upper body certainly felt it. I didn't come close to failure though... could likely have continued for another 5-10 minutes.

Any thoughts on upping the leg challenge in D1? Weighted squats maybe?

Make sure you are doing a proper air squat first. When I started, I wasn't (and really couldn't). After I did the actual move I was amazed at the difference. Now, don't get me wrong, you might be doing them right!

Watch this vid and check your form: ...

Thanks for the tips... I videoed myself, compared to the crossfit vid.

Weight on heels, check.
Shoulders aligned with ankles, all the way down, check
Good lumbar curve (although I think my torso could remain more vertical. this could be key)

I think the secret is going to be slowing them down... after practicing 15, I could at least tell that my legs were awake, so that's something!

I leveled up mid week, is that allowed?

L3D2: 7:49

added 1:30 of plank, and 20 jumping/scissor lunges per leg to finish.

L3D3: 5:05
subbed body rows for pullups (did one clean reverse at the end, though... I can tell the difference in strength in a major way)

30 jumping lunges, 3 minutes (1:30 before, 1:30 after workout) of plank

2 clean one legged squats standing on a box

I'm loving this program, and can see striations on my shoulders already. Whoo!

L4D1: 25 rounds

subbed body rows for most of the pullups, did reverses/negatives for three rounds I think

L4D2: 5:40


maybe a little rushed... I've started doing pullups with a jump, holding at the top, and releasing (3:1 substitution)

pushups need to develop greater depth.
