I am a 39 years old, 5'11", 139 lbs male. I started Simplefit back in August of last year. I am attracted to Simplefit because I am a stay-at-home dad of two kids. I don't have time, money, or desire to go to the gym. In fact, I've never enjoyed exercise. I've had a pull up bar at home and I could always do a few. I enjoy long hikes in the woods with my dog when someone else has the kids. So, I wasn't sedentary, but I wasn't in shape either.
I heard about body weight exercise (I think through Reddit) and it made lots of sense to me. Simplefit was the most straight forward program that I found. I must say I really dig it. Most of you are here to shed pounds, many of you were in shape in your teens and twenties. I have always struggled to keep weight on and build muscle. Even now, I'm down six pounds from my starting weight, but I'm much healthier and stronger. The dog and I are now jogging through the woods two to three times a week (usually on Day 2 and Day 3). I try to hit all the inclines that I can find in my immediate area so that I'm reinforce my leg workouts.
My goal is two complete the basic body weight exercise program by the end of the year, weigh in at 160 lbs, and hopefully build up some bone mass. Honestly, I'd be happy to be at level 8 by this time next year, but I want to set a high goal for myself.
Anyway, I resumed Level 4 this week after a rest week.
Level 4 Day One: 18 rounds
I've trying to do five rounds at a time without resting. I felt sluggish today especially with the push-ups. I took more breaks than I wanted after repetition 12. My door frame is small and therefore my feet hit touch the ground when I do pull ups. Although I kept good form throughout the workout, my heels touched the floor at the beginning of each repetition after about number 12, when I started to wear down. I keep my feet out in front of me when I doing pull ups or chin ups, maybe I should tuck them underneath me and just use dead weight.
