Week 1

D1L1

My first day with Simplefit.
14 rounds. Had to do subs for pull-ups after some rounds.
Squats seemed (too) easy. Maybe I should use a medicine ball or kettle bell - but make sure I improve my technique first.
Had two kids climbing on me for some of the time but it worked pretty well.
Just what I need - a program that can be done at home with the kids running around :)

D2L1

Time: 06:41
Much harder today! Still stiff from my first day.
Not able to do full pull-ups. I pull myself up as far as I get, and then lower myself controlled.
Maybe it would be better to do subs?

Guess my push-up technique could be better - at least I'm a little bit uncertain about correct form when I get tired.
Squats seemed easy first day - today it was hard enough :)

D3L1
Time 11:07

Week 2

Postby braper » Mon Mar 14, 2016 1:18 pm

D1L1

16 rounds. Have to work with the pull-ups. After a while I substituted with negatives. Looking forward to be able to do them right!
Will stay a L1 until I'm able to do the pull-ups right.

D2L1
Time 4:42
Think I will be ready to level up next week.

D3L1
Time 7:34
Not so sure about level up after week 3. Pull ups are still the weakest point.

Week 3

Postby braper » Thu Mar 24, 2016 11:13 pm

D1L1
22 rounds!
I really sees the improvement.

D2L1
Time 3:47
I'm finally able to do real pull ups!! After just 3 weeks.
Starting to wonder what to do in my rest week.. I'm already down on the lowest level.
And a little bit worried to start so hard so I get injuries. Any advices??
Maybe I just do some sport climbing and rest totally from Simplefit.

D3L1
Time 3:48
Time to level up!! Really happy with my progress.
Guess I just gonna take a 'calm' L1 week for my rest week - and then level up.

D1L2
22 rounds. No improvement from last week, but I think form was better.

D3L2
Time 5:09. A hard day and lack of motivation. The time was better than expected - but form was so good.

Week 7

D1L2
Rounds 25. New personal best. But I've have some struggles with motivation. Hope it will get better soon.
(might skip D2 this week - at least rest one day extra - some issues with my right shoulder).

D2L2
Time 5.07

Skipped day 3 because of issues with the shoulder...

Restweek - but since I skipped day 3 and waited some days to start it was more like 2 weeks than one.

Week 9

Postby braper » Tue May 10, 2016 12:12 am

Rounds 15
So hard to start again after the pause/rest. Think I could have done at least 30 rounds, but the motivation was *low*.

D2L2
Time: 5:49
I actually have become stronger during my rest! Needed that to keep the motivation up!

D3L2
Time 4:19
Level 3 here I come!

keep it up! progress comes quickly, then you plateau, then it comes quickly, then the kids take over and you have to start over ;-)

Thanks you for your reply!
I looked at your log, and I think we have some of the same goals.

I'm 37 yo, 183 cm (6') and 62.6kg (138 lbs) when I started.
Hope to build some muscles and gain some weight. My goal is 70kg (154 lsb) ;)

Having three small children I needed a simple program :D

I'm not done with simplefit yet - and I have not quit :)
But have not been able to follow the program truly for the last weeks (been out travelling a bit and other things)

But I still try to keep it up!
At the moment I'm at level 4 (but maybe I should go back to level 3 again..?)
Think my goal is to finish level 5/6 and then change to Start bodyweight (http://startbodyweight.com/)

I will try to update my log soon
