Hey guys, Just did my first workout yesterday, have been doing kettlebells for the last three months, but really want to work on bodyweight exercises right now. LEVEL ONE Week 1-Day one 29 rounds for 20 minutes First five rounds I did proper full dead hang pull ups and the rest of the rounds were done band assisted. I was pretty happy with my push up technique, been flaring my elbows out for years but now I am concentrating on keeping them in nice and tight.
I just realized with my assisted pull ups that I should have been doing 3 instead of just one, oh well I'm going to be redoing level one anyway so I will just finish out the week properly and work on it again next week.
Level 1 day 2 :38 :43 :42 :40 :40 3:18 total time I really enjoyed today, mostly because I was able to get proper pull ups for all five rounds without having to resort to assistance. It will be interesting to see how many pull ups I can do on day 3, probably break them into separate sets to get a little rest.
It definitely does not help to be carrying the extra bodyfat but 3 months ago I couldn't do one pull up. Looking forward to next week and I can start this cycle all over again and see where I am at on level one day one.
Week 2 L1D1 21 rounds I did the round properly this time, when I switched to assisted pull ups i did 3 for every one push up.this reduced my total rounds of course but I did manage 8 rounds with a full pull up as opposed to last week of 5 full pull ups. Went pretty well I thought, looking forward to Wednesday.
Week 2 L1D2 :38 :36 :33 :32 :32 Total time=2:51 first round was the same time and improved time on last four. I think my push ups were faster, I felt stronger doing them. Managed to get all my pull ups in but they are definitely the weak link.
I just bought the primal blueprint a couple of days ago so today is the first day of eating a different way, hope to lose some bodyfat and have at least some of the results that Cheapo has had.
