I started the program mid-week last week and was pretty damn sore.
I found this site from crossfit.com. I wasn't ready for that, so I want to do the simplefit program. More than a few people say they wished they started with this program as well.
I'm 32, 6'2 and between 245lbs and 250lbs. I've always been fairly athletic, but the beer and pizza diet has caught up to me. To get back into some sort of shape, I've just completed the coach potato to 5K program. I play half-court basketball 1-2 times a week for about an hour.
My short term goal is to run 3-4 miles on Tue and Thurs and work on the simplefit program Mon, Wed, and Fri. My goal is to do each level in a month.
My longer term goal is to lose 50-70 lbs with simplefit, running, some crossfit training, basketball and I think I'm going to give the diet from this site a shot for a month. I have already adjusted my portions of what I'm currently eating and I've stopped drinking.
I started simplefit on Wednesday of last week, here is what I did:
-6 reverse chin-ups
-10 reverse chin-ups
-21 push ups
I'm just about able to do a full chin-up, just from last weeks reverses. Last week I did reverse chin-ups but on Friday, I wasn't able to do the 3:1 ratio, I was too sore, so that's why my time was so good.
This is what I've completed this week:
-Alternated 2 jumping chin ups/1 jumping pull up and 2 jumping pull up/1 jumping chin up
-2 push ups
I only got 9 rounds in, I got pretty winded. I'm shooting for 15 for next week. I'm going to try to get a full chin-up and probably add in some body rows with the reverse or jump pull ups.
Today I ran just over 3.25 miles in 37:32. I'm playing basketball tonight as well.
Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to make sure I got it all in here.
Thanks for reading.
