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.

Level 1 day 3
Pull ups-2.2,1
Assisted pull ups-6,3,3,2,1
Push ups-5,5,5,3.3
Squats-21
Time:8:03

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.

I weigh 192lbs, started watching my calories in February when I weighed 207lbs. I am using the simplefit android app on my phone to keep track of my workouts, it's pretty handy to have.

Week two
Level 1 Day 3

Suprised myself and made it under 5 minutes today!

PULL UPS
No assisted pull ups today, very, very happy with this.
3,3,2,2
PUSH UPS
10,5,,3,3
SQUATS

It must be the two pounds I lost this week because I really wasn't expecting this result! I thought I would be doing week one again.

You blew day three out of the water! Excellent work on the un-assisted pull-ups...those definitely seem to be the most difficult part for most people around here.
