Easy Week, Day 1

What makes the most sense for a Day 1 workout in an easy week?

Do it at your current level with a slower pace?

Drop down a level and go for maximum reps?

Drop down a level and use a slower pace?

Assuming I am going for max. reps, the difference in intensity between my current level (4) and Level 3 seems minuscule.

Level 3:
2 pull-ups
3 push-ups
5 squats

Level 4:
2 pull-ups
4 push-ups
6 squats

Changing the pace and not chasing max. reps. would seem to have a much larger impact on the intensity of the workout.

The poll is just for fun really. If you have an opinion, please make a reply.

The simplefit recommendation is to drop down TWO levels. If you drop down 1, I say go at a slower pace, matching the number of rounds you got the FIRST time you ever did that lower level. If you never did that level, then use the lowest round count you ever got on your current level.

So what is your easy week workout if you're at Level 1? Cut everything in 1/2?

Good idea.

Or you could just sub everything - Pushups to the wall of stair, bodyrows (1 - 1 instead of 3 - 1), half the squats. Be creative. You could also just take it easy...
