Alright... it's been 2 days since my first D1L1 workout. I'm sore, and quite irritable - though the latter is probably due to my recent insomnia rather than a complaint that is due to the workout :) Thought about postponing today's workout until tomorrow, but other posts on the board said my soreness should be better if I exercise so I'm gonna give it a shot.
This evening I should be starting D2L1.
Anyhoo, back to the log.
35 Rounds in 20 minutes.
First 10 rounds were complete with full chin-ups.
Last 25 were with negative pull-ups only, I modified the grip every 5 rounds. Alternating between pull-ups, chin-ups and parallel grip pull-ups.
My plan for today is to work on the 5 rounds with full pull-ups, alternating grips each set. Given the 3-5 minute rest period, I'm aiming to maintain a 4 minute rest period as I get into the swing of things.
In case anyone cares, I'm supplementing the simplefit workout with the following...
Tues, Thursday - 2 hours Aikido training (light, cause I'm still new at it) and 2 sets of interval training on the stationary bike.
Most Saturdays - 3 hours MMA training (also relatively light), cutting the grass :)
Sunday - 2 sets of interval training
A note on interval training... I'm using the 1,2 timing method. After a 3-4 minute light warm-up, I "sprint" for 1 minute, and "jog" for 2 minutes. The sprint and jog are part of a set. I hope to move up to 3 sets of interval training in a couple of weeks.
My warm-up starts out with 40 crescent kicks (10 each leg, each style) followed by a light cardio warm-up of high-knees, jumping jacks, burpees, skipping, calf-raises, and skanking (don't know the workout term, using the dance name :) ) for just a couple of minutes.
Cool down involves panting for 20 minutes while a swear at anything I look at :roll:. Also, stretching...
