I did forget to mention in my original first post that I live at altitude. (About 5500' above sea level.)

I know a lot of professional boxers and UFC fighters train up here because of the altitude. I also know that running is easier when I'm running "down the hill".

Has there been any people here that have noticed benefits from doing simplefit in the altitude?

I'll find out when I end up going down the hill and can miraculously do 100 straight pull ups. lol

Anyway, I just was wondering if anybody else does high altitude training?

Hello again Coreman,

I live at 6,000 feet, and have extended family 500 miles away who live at 1,000 or less. I find when I go there to visit, I have tons more energy. Shoot, I can actually run down there.. But the reverse is not true. When they visit us they often feel drained and head-achey for a few days until they acclimate.

When I hunt in the fall I'm often at 8,000 to 10,000 feet, and I definitely feel the difference.

I'm around Denver, CO, "mile high city". Since starting simplefit, I have not returned to Florida to visit family, and won't till December. I am interested to see how my workout goes at sea level after 7 months of simplefit.

W2L1D1
17 rounds!!!

My goal was 15, up from 9 last week, so I'm pretty excited about it.

The first 12 rounds were with 1 "poser" pull ups. (About eye level)

The last 5 rounds were substituted with body rows with a 3:1 ratio.

Yesterday I biked for 8 miles at an average of about 10.5 mph and played an hour of basketball.

W2L1D2

9:22

First 2 rounds were "poser" pull ups again. 3rd round was jumping pull ups with a 3:1 ratio and the 4th and 5th rounds were with body rows with 3:1 ratio.

My 3 year old son wanted to join in the workout, so I had to help him, so that is why my time is higher than before, but it was worth it. I've got to video him doing squats. lol.

I thought I was in the 7 minute range last week, but after checking my log (I was over 12 mins), I see that I did improve, even with helping my son, so I am once again excited to see progress.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I think it's good not knowing what I did last week. So far, I was wrong twice and both times I beat my previous week time.

I'm thinking one more week of level one, then level two, here I come.

I fixed my mistake. I actually did half of a week that I didn't really count. I used it as a warm up week. lol.

I am on W3 this week.
