I looked at this work out a few times, and I finally decide that I would give it a try. I hope that I will be able to strengthen my upper body through this program. Even in high school I remember struggling trying to do one pull-up in gym class. I’m looking forward to the day that I can do several pull-ups in a row.
I don’t have a very long history of working out. Just over a couple of years ago my company started a weight lost/exercise challenge which I joined. I was 5’11” and 270lbs. Shortly after I started the challenge I saw a local marathon and I thought that would be fun to try. I ran in the marathon the following year. Now I am continuing to run marathons, but I’m still overweight at 230lbs and my upper body is weak.
So, I am planning on doing simplefit on MWF. I was a little concern about the effects the squats would have on my running which I do on MTTS. After the first week I have been pleasantly surprise that the squats seem to be complementing my running.
Here is my first week.
W1L1D1 : 27*
W1L1D2 : 5:54* (Didn’t count breaks)
W1L1D3 : 3:43*
*3 body rows for each pull-up
