W14 L2 D2 - 5 rounds completed, nothing exciting to report.

W14 L2 D3 - 04:55

13 pull ups in sets of 7,6
26 push ups in sets of 13,13
26 squats in 1 set

On to level 3!

Couple of points to note:

- Week 14 has taken longer than a week, due to my being a bit lazy on a couple of occasions, so was pleasantly surprised by this good result
- Started my first set of pull ups immediately (obviously), my second set at 2:30
- Push ups were much tougher than usual. Possibly because my upper body was exhausted from the pull ups.
- Going to be a big change in my routine from next week. Going to be doing grappling twice a week, and the only way I can think to also include simplefit in my routine is to do my simplefit workout immediately before my grappling class on a tuesday and thursday evening. If I find this is too much then I may have to cut back on simplefit.

So after my last post I strained my groin in grappling. As a result I took a week off training but returned on Friday.

W15 L3 D1 - 14 sets

Felt slightly unfit after my week of nursing my groin (sounds weird that doesn't it?).

Haha well I've said it now.

Last night : W15 L3 D2 - 5 rounds (although I accidentally only did 6 squats in my first round, instead of 16)

A good cardio workout in particular. Went to grappling straight after my workout which felt fine until the last five minutes when my arms gave up on me. May have to reconsider this approach.

W15 L3 D3 - 09:21

16 pull ups in sets of 6,5,3,2
33 push ups in sets of 16,13,4
33 squats in 1 set

My simplefit weeks have been generally taking longer than a week of late, want to try and get back into a routine of doing it 3 times a week.

Sadly had a recurrence of my groin injury which has meant (or at least been an excuse for) taking a couple of weeks off.

Returned to the gym on saturday and decided to drop back down to level 2 given my lay off.

L2 D1 W16 - 17 rounds

L2 D2 W16

Completed on Thursday. Felt good. Off to do day 3 later today which will complete my first proper week for a while. Still not back to grappling yet though after my injury, so will still ultimately have to find a way to incorporate both into my routine without over training.

L2 D3 W16 - 06:11

13 pull-ups in sets of 6, 4, 3
26 push-ups in sets of 13,13
26 squats in a single set

Time shows I was right to drop down a level after my lay off!

L2 D3 W17 - 04:29

13 pull-ups in sets of 8,5
26 push-ups in sets of 14, 12
26 squats in a single set

Back up to level 3 however...

I've decided I really want to try and get into a habit of doing grappling (BJJ) twice a week, and the only way I can see this working is by me limiting my serious calisthenic workouts to once a week. Other than that I plan on doing cardio and yoga only. I will still post my SimpleFit workouts here as a log, but I do not expect they will follow the typical Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 routine.

In particular I still intend to use Day 3 as a gauge for my overall "ability" (i.e. combination of strength + endurance).
