Started L1D1 tonight; 17 sets. I'm 46, 6'1", 210 lbs., not extremely overweight.

The pushups and squats were easy, but the pull ups were the deal breaker. I was able to do one, but the rest were subs (jump up and try to let down slowly), so I was doing three of those per set. I predict much soreness tomorrow.

I did a few sets of dips afterwards. I like those and don't want to cut them out.

welcome to SF davarm. don't despair, before you know it, you'l be able to get "rid" of the subs and do normal pull-ups, or at least chin-ups to start with.
and good luck with the sore body tomorrow!!!!

As predicted, I was very sore after Day 1. Had to wait three days to do L1D2, which I completed in just under six minutes (5:59 to be exact).

I was still pretty sore today and couldn't do one pull up, so I had to do six negatives every set. Instead of jumping, I used a stool to get to the starting position, then lowered myself as slowly as I could. Also, I alternated between pull up, chin up, and side grips.

I've had a cold and chest infection, so I had to take a few days off, but felt good enough on Xmas day to start L1D1 again with 26 reps. The first chin-up was full, but I did 3x negatives for the remaining, alternating grips every set.

Happy New Year all! Nice party at the house last night with some old friends who I haven't seen in awhile. Probably had a couple of beers too many, but that didn't stop me from L2D1 today, with a total of 27 rounds. I did full chinups on the first two; the rest were negatives (x3) with alternating grips. I'm feeling the extra burn with the additional pushup and squat.

Completed L2D3 in 5:31 last night.

2 complete chinups, one failed chinup, then 32 negatives with alternating grips. 26 pushups and 26 squats were no problem.

I don't see myself moving up until I can do at least 4-5 full chinups. I did the routine last night non-stop, going as fast as I could while keeping good form.
