DR03K's Training Log - (OLD1)

Postby DR03K » Sat Oct 22, 2011 8:45 pm

Hello,

I've been an active gym go'er over the last 3 years or so. For the last 4 months or so I've ditched the weights and mostly been training with body weight exercises.
Initially I was following the convict conditioning progressions and then mostly recently my own routine using adaptations from Pavels "The Fighters Pullup" to increase my pullup numbers (1SM currently at 11).

My reasons for giving SimpleFit a go are purely because of the simplicity of the structured workouts.
Pullups / Pushups / Squats are just literally the best compound exercises available outside dead lifting and squats with weight.

I do have access to a gym, but I find it's extremely busy and frustrating waiting in line at the squat stations...so hard to get a decent workout done for time.
Also, you can't exactly go mental and slip into "Beast" mode! lol

But yeah, after reading Cheapo's blog and his individual achievements with SF; this has really motivated me to start this.

Anyways, lets crack on with level one day one:

[b]Sunday 23/10/2011[/b]
L1D1: 50 sets completed (Maintaining strict form throughout every exercise)

[b]Comments:[/b]
No doubt, this is going to be felt in the morning.

I hear you on wanting to give simplefit a shot. I have done the gym scene, tried all the bodyweight stuff(CC, 5bx, Tried my own routines) and I keep going back to simple fit. I dont know what it is about it, but it always pulls me back into doing it.

Have you had decent results from doing simple fit?
I'm not really expecting to see much mass gains, but what I am hoping for is a good degree of condition, ideally I'd like to get my body fat % below the magic 10% level.

On another note, would you recommend skipping a couple levels based upon my L1D1 / L1D2 results?

Friday 28/10/2011
Warrior diet day 15

Lunch:
Cardio - 21 minutes rowing, 315 calories burned.

Comments:
Weight has been pretty static this week, where as in contrast to weeks 1 and 2 (on the Warrior Diet) created my largest drop in weight. So i'm starting to believe the initial 6-8 pounds loss was due to detox / water retention.

Anyways, weight loss isn't the number one goal here; muscle definition and a reduced body fat percentage are key.

That's a terrific pull-up PR.

I'm guessing you'll have no trouble getting through level 4 (and as someone who has been battling it 13 weeks now, I speak as a level 4 expert)
