Level 1-
Day 1: 20 rounds in 20 minutes
Day 2: 5 rounds in 4:57 minutes

pullups- jumping
squats- 45lb. bar

Also, before each workout I did 10 minutes cardio on an elliptical trainer and after each workout I did a 5 minute cool down on the treadmill and 15 minutes of abs.

My goal is to lose body fat and get tone. Weight is not a huge issue for me.

This workout has reminded me of how out of shape I am. It kicked my butt.

I did a triathalon last year and thought i was in good shape :oops:
I started playing ice hockey and realized that i was not. I picked this up about 3 weeks ago and seeing as i was playing hockey that i was going to be in good shape :oops:

Lesson learned: STOP THINKING I AM IN GOOD SHAPE :D

welcome

Maybe do them on your knees till you can do regular, full range of motion is most important IMHO.
