L5D1: 17 Rounds
Change: -7

L5D2:

5:32 Total
Change: -27 seconds

I was feeling sick to my stomach before day one but decided to try it anyway. Bad idea. I felt like I was going to die after 10 minutes and struggled through two more rounds before stopping the clock at 15:30.

L5D3, attempt 3:

5:07
Change: -1:14

I sacrificed my form too much on the pullups, though. If I had broken the 5-minute mark it wouldn't have felt right to move up.

L5D1: 24 Rounds
Change: +7

Here I kept good form. I paced myself better and that helped me perform more consistently throughout the 20 minutes. Before, I was getting wiped out by the 15 minute mark and completing almost no rounds after that.

Good week. I'm getting close to finishing this level. Even though my day 3 time went up, it was without cutting corners like I did last week.

This is terrific progress! I am coming to think that one of the limitations of simplefit is that you are always on the clock, which makes sticking to form a little more difficult.

Very true KTG. I was thinking about doing what Cheapo does and not using a timer for day 2, but for now I think my day 2 form is OK.

L5D2:

1:01
0:58

L5D3, attempt 5:

4:50

On to level 6 (!) after I take an easy week on level 3. I wish I had taken a picture when I started because my body has changed quite a bit, but here's a pic of me now:

Thanks man!

L3D1: 37 Rounds
Change: +9 Rounds

L3D2:

0:52
0:49
0:50
0:51
0:48

4:10 Total
Change: -31 seconds

L3D3:

2:18
Change: -12 seconds (but I did not know the rules the first time I did this level and jumped between exercises, so comparing the day 3 times is useless)

My form was as good as I know how to make it on every rep on all days and my day 3 exercises were done in one set each.

L6D1: 19 Rounds

L6D2:

1:10
1:21
1:29
1:45
1:34

7:19 Total

L6D3, attempt 1:

9:08

On paper the jump from level 5 to level 6 doesn't look so bad. Day 3 has 6 extra pull-ups, 13 extra push-ups, and 13 extra squats. I was already running up against my limit for endurance on L5D3, however, and getting those extra pull-ups and push-ups was really tough to do. Even the squats had me taking breaks.

L6D3, attempt 2:

8:39

After that, I had a lingering stomach sickness that made me lose 10 pounds. I'm getting back into it slowly by going through levels 3 and 4 before jumping back up to level 6.

L3D1: 28 rounds
L3D2: 3:59
L3D3: 2:57
