Question about D3

Postby rdeluxe » Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:41 am

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find the answer.

Just started with L1D1 yesterday, and I enjoyed the workout. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to beat the 5min time on D3. What should I do for the rest of the 20 minutes? Just repeat? It will most likely be hard to do 10 more pullups, but I might be able to. Should I just repeat the exercises exactly as I did for my time?

There is no 20 minutes on Day 3. There is only "as long as it takes to do the exercises."

Thanks for the reply. So... If I'm done in 4 minutes, I'm done for the day. That's a short workout!

Yep and that means its time for you to move up a level. Congratulations!

Do you do all the prescribed reps of one exercise before moving onto the next exercise? Example... If I am supposed to do 20 pullups and am able to 10 at first, rest until I can do maybe 5 more, rest and then 3, and then the last 2? Then move onto pushups> Hope that makes sense.

You are correct. In Day 3 every attempt should be made to complete each exercise first before moving on. This will help you later on as you move up the ladder so that eventually 20 + pullups etc are a breeze. I would also recommend that you put forth every effort to actually complete each exercise without stopping. The rewards you get later on are well worth the agony heh.

When is it time to move up a level? When your D3 time is under your D2 time?

When your D3 time is less than 5 minutes.

One little question for D3 then. Do I only measure the time I rest, or do I measure the whole time? On D2 we only measure the time it takes to do the exercises, but not the rest time, so is it the other way around on D3?

Ok, then I did it right. It seems you have to be terribly fast to stay below 5 min in the later levels though. Doing squats like that Duracell Bunny did those drums.

edit: I can read, I asked merely because English is my third language and I do miss stuff sometimes.

Thanks for the advice! I changed to that order the second week. I have to substitute kipping pull ups with chin ups, due to the space and position of my bar. I can do narrow grip pull ups too, but kipping is impossible wihtout hurting myself and/or destroying furniture here.

Those videos were super helpful. Thanks! It especially improved my squats, I was much too rigid in how I was doing them. I like the fluidity in the videos.
