Sure you can get around anything I have used corkscrew and ssh tunnels at several jobs to get around big brother :)

But this type of tech could help protect some unsophisticated kids.

But you still have locks on your house right? As long as such a product isn't advertised as a complete no-thinking-required solution, it would help.

Yeah, that corkscrew sure is a multi-functional tool!

L2D2

Soundtrack -
Lamp of Wisdom - Silk and Bamboo (Warmup on Bike)
Pulses - Steve Reich (Stretch)
Fanfare for the Common Man - Aaron Copland (Gettin' pumped)
Sai So - (Kodo Sai) Japanese Drum - remixed (L2D2)
Sweating Bullets - Megadeth (I've seen 'em live - AWESOME)
Peace Dog - The Cult (I've seen 'em live - AWESOME)
Music for 1001 Nights - Moroccan Spirit (Cool Down)

Great workout!

5rnds of 3,8,13 with 3minutes rest after EVERY round - Like this:
1 - took 55s
2 - took 50s
3 - took 53s
4 - took 47s!
5 - took 43s!!!

4m 8s

I wanted to pay attention to the time per round on this one.

My decrease in speed was a result of a challenge I made to myself after round 3. Big decrease in time because I sped up the pushups.

I am also getting to the muscle memory (skill in the cortex) on my pullups. I am using good form and speeding up the reps there a bit. I read on a somewhere about exploding your pullups from your back. This is working. I am "thinking" less and performing more.

I challenge you to do L2D2 again in a week, except slow down each workout by 50%. Therefore, on average, it should take 1:40 per round. Personal challenge, you can choose to accept or not.

Great work VBM! Manipulating rest is great stuff, you can also play with 1 really big rest for full recovery 1/2 way through and see what that does.

Andy I like your challenge, maybe drop it in Challenges & Member workouts it's a good one I think my previous 5 second interval per movement was over the top.

Thanks Kevin! Always nice to read positive feedback.

Actually, around 5 seconds per pullup was about what I was doing before. At some point I went from 19 rounds of L1D1 down to 12 or so. This happened when I decided to do some real work on my pullups. I slowed em way down. I also was doing 5 second (probably longer) pullups (only 1 per set) when I did the GTG for pullups. I am getting to the point now where it feels like strength endurance is an option.

Whew!

L1D3
13 - 26 - 26
4 pullups - 20s rest
2 pullups - 30s rest
2 pullups - 45s rest
2 pullups - 30s rest
2 pullups
26 pushups 10, 8, 8
26 squats - fast.

Watched the clock and saw level up sitting there! Didn't make it - pushups slowed me down this time. Next time I break, I'll GTG the pushups.

Total time - rest time = 5:22 - 2:05 = 3:17

Edit: This is my last D3
Total - rest = 9:08 - 5:30 = 3:38 equivalent to last L2D3 with 2 minutes less rest time.


3:25 shaved from rest time.
