I highly recommend this book
http://www.amazon.com/Protein-Power-Lif ... 0446525766

yeah the title sucks but it will change your whole perspective on healthy eating and since you have a more scientific bent you will like it as it goes deep into the science.

W9,L2:D2 - 6:32
Breaks were 3, 3, 4, 5. I did not gain extra recovery energy (I don't think) with the extra rest time before the last 2 rounds. I would say that, as long as I get 3 minutes break, I work at 100% efficiency, 99%, 95%, 90%, 80%. This only refers to bodyrows, pushups and squats were done with good form, no issues (slow pushups too).
Bodyrows were done slow and deliberate.

full recovery can take up to 5 minutes and since the main goal now is strength gains I say go for it if you want.

1 hour of yoga today... still feel my simplefit workout from thursday when doing it. After the yoga, I drank 20oz of water over 10 minutes, and took my weight: 293 lbs (-8 lbs after 2 months)! Yay!
Also 20 minutes after yoga, I did some tests using the 'assisted pullup' machine, and at my current strength, and my preferred weight (-70 lbs), I was unable to do a pull-up still. Dropping -140 lbs (equal to my 40 deg. bodyrows) I was able to do a few pull-ups. So, with muscle strength growing, and weight dropping, I should get there...
tomorrow is l2d3.

I'm sure that when you make your preferred weight, you'll be able to do a pull-up. The reason is you'll be so much stronger then, so estimating it with the assistant doesn't tell you the complete picture.

1 pound a week is great progress, keep it up.

W9,L2:D3 - 8:33
squats straight-through, push-ups done as 20 then 6 (woot), bodyrows were aweful (got to failure quickly). Probably due to yoga. I think there will be no more yoga except on rest weeks.

M3, W10, L2:D1 - 22 reps
Prior to the workout, I did a jump pull-up test. I jumped up to about chin level (overhand), drifted down about 2 inches, then lifted myself back up those two inches. WOOT, progress!
The workout itself wasn't hard on my muscles, but my right arm was burning (I'm a lefty). I think I need to stretch it out more than my left or something, that is the only thing slowing me down is the burning pain.

W10,L2:D2 - 5:54
4 minute breaks between sets.
This was the first time I felt comfortable during L2:D2. Still quite the challenge, but I finally felt my skill level matched the requirements, and I belonged here (on my 4th time trying). I also did some more 'dead hang' testing and I feel much more comfortable with my current weight. I can hold myself up for a bit after jumping up into the pull-up.

I'm making a bold statement: in ~4 weeks, I will do my first pullup... August 19th, before my L2:D3 workout that sunday. DAMN IT!

W10,L2:D3 - 8:17
Had to pause for 30 seconds in the first minute to fetch a ball for some tennis players, so this time is not as reliable as the every other one of mine.
Walked for 30 minutes (1.4 miles) afterwards.
