Hi everyone, I started SF on 6/8. I came across it thanks to Cheapo's thread on Mark's Daily Apple and it seemed to be what I was looking for: something that was simple, I could do at home, structured and that didn't require a lot of equipment.
I'm going to start posting every day I workout, but to begin I'll just list the first few that I've already done:
6/15 - L2D1 - did 17 sets (same as L1D1) plus 1 pull up and 1 push up. I spend a lot of time getting in position for squats which is new to me and a little less time doing the same thing for pushups. I'm fine with taking the extra time because I want to ensure I don't get injured and I know that I'll be able to speed up once I have the form down
Total in 20 minutes:
18 pull ups (pull ups are harder for me, so I usually do chin ups, but I've started alternating between chinups, pullups and neutral/side grip)
6/13 - L1D3
Did it in 4:43.9 + 11 squats and 2 pullups. Glad that I could move up to the next level. I felt I could have moved up a level earlier, but Cheapo had suggested just going with the process, so that's what I did.
6/10 − 6:45pm L1D2 - contemplated going up a level, but decided to stay where I was and do extra at the end. longest was my first set at 1:34.3 and shortest was my last at 1:22.8! took 3 mins rest in between, but was doing laundry etc. also hiked for 30 mins at 6pm and walked from new Brattle St. mtg to Harvard Square and back.
Also did 2 sets of 2 pull-ups (earlier i did chin-ups), which is all I could do sans going to failure + 5 pushups, tried doing them close, but shoulders felt like they were hurting, then 15 goblet squats low
second set was 2 pulls, 10 std push and 10 goblet squats
total 5 x 2 = 10 + 4 = 14 pull
6x5 = 30 + 15 = 45 push
30 + 15 = 45 squats!
6/8/2012 − 6:40p
did 17 sets of Level 1 (+ 1 chin up) all were chins
started 5:51, 5:56, 6:02, 6:08. Could have done more, not really I was quite tired or at least ready to stop
18 pullups (chin) + 1=18
