15th week (Nov 14-18)

L4D1
16 rounds

L4D2
(0'58'', 0'58'', 0'59'', 0'58'', 0'56'')=2'89''

L4D3
4'28''

Notes: So this time I actually did my excercises as they should be done, and managed to still better my previous week's time. On to level 5.

16th week (Nov 21-25)

L5D1
15 rounds

L5D2
(1'16'', 1'09'', 1'11'', 1'14'', 1'08'')=5'58''

L5D3
6'03''

Notes: I don't know why, but I felt that this particular level was a really hard step up from the last one; it seemed really hard for me to keep my times down. Next week, my healing week, I'll try variations of the exercises I've done so far.

17th week (Nov 28-Dic 2)

L2D1
16 rounds

L2D2
(1'12'', 1'09'', 1'30'', 1'10'', 1'01'', 1'18'')=6'80''

L2D2
6'68''

Notes: I wanted to try something different for this week, because of that I did variations of the normal Simplefit exercises.

  • Instead of doing the normal bodyrow, I crossed my arms on an 'X' infront of me and pulled towards the side until I had my elbows and shoulders on a straight line, doing a 90º angle with my arm.
  • I sub'd the normal push ups with three variations: diamond pushups, military pushups and dive bomber pushups.
  • I changed the standards squats with standard lunges (without added weight).

On top of that, on both L2 days (since doing L3 with the variations didn't seem right to me), instead of doing 5 rounds I did 6, that with the objective of doing to sets with each kind of pushup variation. All in all, it felt pretty good to have a chage of pace on the rutine. Next week, I'll keep going with L5 of the normal Simplefit routine.

18th week (Dic 5-9)

L5D1
12 rounds

L5D2
(1'08'', 1'11'', 1'10'', 1'13'', 1'13'')=5'55''

L5D3
6'14''

Notes: I think I found a hard limit to my advancement in this program, at least at the pace I was going at. Level 5 seems to be taking a heavy toll on me, as shown by D1's low round count. This might be the level that'll take the longest to past just yet.

I'm sure L5 is going to be a huge climb for me as well. It is interesting that I'm doing 20 rounds for D1 now, but am much slower on D2 and D3. I suspect that the D2 D3 times are a better predictor of when you'll level up.

Yeah, D1 isn't really a good indicator on whether you level up or not; D2 is where it's at.

19th week (Dec 12-16)

L5D1
12 rounds

L5D2
(1'14'', 1'10'', 1'12'', 1'13'', 1'10'')=5'59''

L5D3
4'42''

Notes: It seems that my exhaustion was to do some other problems (as in non-physical) and that's why I didn't managed to improve on my times. But the day before D3, I went trecking to the top of a volcano with some friends and it seems that the renewed air and experience charged me. I was tired that day, I even contemplated no doing my D3 routine since I thought I had done plenty of exercise for the week, but I still did it. Amazingly (I still can't believe it myself) I managed to break the less than 5min mark and level up.

L6D1
16 rounds

L6D2
(1'26'', 1'22'', 1'49'', 1'26'', 1'23'')=6'46''

L6D3

Notes: It seems I need to do mountain climbing more often! hahahaha So yeah, this week was back to reality/normal routine and as such L6 tore me down like nobody's business.

21th week (Dec 26-30)

L3D1
15 rounds

L3D2
(1'12'', 1'02'', 1'19'', 0'58'', 1'03', 1'15'')=6'09''

L3D2
4'44''

Notes: This is the usual variation week, hence the 3 level drop. The first day had to stop doing lounges and do sit ups instead since I hurt my knee while doing one.
