Okay, let's get this started:


12 March 2011:

L1D1: 44 rounds

14 March 2011:

L1D2: 4 min 14 sec

L1D3 tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get it under the 5 minute mark. The chin-ups will be the biggest problem, I think. (I use the chin-up variation at the moment. I'll start mixing them with pull-ups once I get, erm, the hang of it.)

I'll start level 2 next week. I expect that real troubles start there. I need to cut some serious weight if I want to keep progressing.

19 March 2011

Crossfit! I found out that there is an affiliate nearby, so I went to have a test run with a friend. Here's the workout:

7 minutes AMRAP:
7 x box jump (with 60 cm high box)
7 x kettlebell swing (I used a 16 kg kbell)
7 x push-up

Result: 5+14

Damn, it was devastating! Brutal! I think that I'll need to be at least at level 4 or 5 before trying again. I'm glad that I found SimpleFit so I'll have efficient means to improve my basic fitness.

Also, my lower back is killing me right now. I've hurt it before while weightlifting and I guess those hurried kb-swings didn't agree with it.
Oh well, L2D1 tomorrow!

21 March 2011

L2D1

38 rounds.

I felt incredibly sluggish today. Maybe it was the Saturday's crossfit session or maybe lack of sleep is finally getting to me. Anyway, I feel that I could have done better but I guess I'm happy with this result, considering the circumstances.

Oh, and I jumped to the first squat straight from the push-up. Is this ok?

L2D2: 5:11.1

I was really surprised that I was able to do all the chin-ups in straight sets, without resting between reps. The last set was hard though, but I made it. The chin-ups are still the hardest part for me, although it's getting more even with longer sets of push-ups and squats.

The chin-ups are obviously still the hardest part, but I really started to feel the push-ups too!

Boxing training with friends. Alternating rounds with focus mitts and heavy bag. Afterwards we hit the gym and I did chest press, lat pull-downs and cable wood chops.

L3D2: 5:12.2

Ach, now I realize that I should've recorded the time for each round separately. Oh well, next time.
I'm very pleased with the chin-up progress: this time I could do them with much purer form, with less kipping and felt more comfortable doing them. Something I wouldn't have believed just a few weeks ago.
Squats are still the easiest part. Maybe I'll do them prisoner-style next time if I don't get to level 4.

4 April 2011

L3D3

16 chin-ups (3+2+2+2+2+2+1+1+1)
33 push-ups (30+3)
33 squats

Time: 4:17.4

Made it, ma! Level 4! Just barely, though - a couple more chin-ups and I wouldn't have made it. I have a feeling that I'll spend a looong time at L4. That's all right, I have all the time in the world!

7 April 2011

L4D1

24 rounds in 20 minutes. Funny thing, the pull-ups were giving me trouble again, but then I remembered a trick from an article I read a while back: I started to lean back a little bit and pulled towards my rib cage. Boom! Instant power-up!

It's raining outside. Glad I didn't have to go out for my exercise :)
