I'm 31. I've always been active, though I'm no athlete. I was very thin until just a few years ago. It was a combination of working out to build muscle and slowed metabolism to add fat (i'm guessing from age). I'm 5'10" and now 185 lbs. Most of it is genetics. My dad was the same way, but he has probably never worked out in his life. Thin as a broomstick until his 40's and now he's got quite the belly.

Ah, the early 30's. I dimly recall those as the 'good old days'. But now I don't feel so bad when I see your times on L4. Good genetics + hard work is a tough combination to beat!

Not that we're competing or anything... :roll:

So I was planning to do L4D3 this weekend, but we had company Saturday and I had to work on the car on Sunday. The car repair was a workout in itself. Here's the routine: Bend over the hood for a few hours - works your back. :wink: Lay under the car for a few hours - works your neck. :P And no matter what you do, you will work your forearms and shoulders turning wrenches and manipulating parts that are hard to reach. :twisted:

Hey, don't discount plain ole manual labor. I suspect we would all be in much better shape if we had to physically work harder for our living!

I agree. With technology comes fat.

Its funny though, how much manual labor I've done in just the past few months alone. It works well with the simplefit routine. Both make the other easier.

Last night I finished up the first week of Level 4. Next week I'll jump back to Level 2 for a break.

L4D3: 6:20

For the pull ups I also wanted to see how many I could do all in a row. I got to 12 before my form got sloppy. But the cool thing is that ALL the pull ups were full range of motion with NO kipping! :D The sets were 12, 5, 3 for pullups and 15, 15, 11 for both push ups and squats.

After that I did about 5 sets of L-hangs for 10 seconds and 2x10 really slow sit ups.

Grrowwwl. :twisted: Thanks guys.

So, this will be a short rest week. I'll be greasin' the groove on pull ups and maybe push ups too. Any time I go near the garage I'll whip out a few reps of each. I also plan to run with the dog at least twice this week, but no sprinting.

So far yesterday I did 2 sets of 7 pull ups a couple hours apart. That's all.
