JellieBellie's Work Out Log

Postby jelliebellie » Thu Aug 16, 2007 10:29 am

I'm on Week 3 of the workouts. I just moved up to Level 2 this week and my arms are SHOT! :shock:

Level 2 Day 1 - 19 rounds (using pull up sub - jumping up and lowering myself down)
Level 2 Day 2 - 10:03 (using same sub as above)

I went surfing the day after my "Day 1" workout and barely lasted an hour and a half (i'm usually good for 2-3 hours). I could barely paddle myself in to the waves! But I'm really eager to build up my arm and back strength to help me be a better surfer.

I really want to get to the point of doing an actual pull up. I've never done ONE in my entire life unassisted! So I keep pushing myself to do 3 subs for every pull up called for in the exercise and not wuss out. My poor little chicken arms are finally having to pull their weight...pun intended!

By the way! After one month with SimpleFit and The Zone, I've already dropped 10 pounds. WOOOO!!!!
:D

8/19/07 Level 2, Day 3

Postby jelliebellie » Sun Aug 19, 2007 10:29 pm

Level 2, Day 3 - 6 mins 32 secs
(using 3 jump up and lower down sub for every pull up called for).


I'm not subtracting rest times here. I rested quite frequently doing the pull ups, and then I broke the push up reps in to 4 groups.

Welcome, jelliebellie, and nice work.

That's the correct way. You subtract rest time on Day 2, but not on Day 3

Good work!

I do measure the rest times in day 3. I don't count it to determine whether I level up, but I find the rest times to be the thing that keeps me over 5 minutes. Thus, I focus on reducing the rest times.

One Small Step for JellieBellie-kind

Postby jelliebellie » Fri Aug 24, 2007 11:12 am

Level 2, Day 1 - 21 rounds
Have to admit I'm not lowering down as much on the pushups as I should, but I'd rather try at real pushups than mess around with guhly ones. :)

Progress!! I test my progress towards finally doing a real, unassisted pushup every time I do SimpleFit. Last night, I was able to hold myself for a second at the top of my jump-up pull-up subs!!! Usually I'm like a manic Mexican jumping bean, hoisting myself and falling back down with very little control. But last night I found I had the muscle strength to hold for a fraction of a second at top and then lower down. It may seem silly to some, but it's progress to me!! WOO!

:lol:

Full range of motion is really important so consider doing push ups with your hands on a bench or chair till you get up to speed.

Great work keep it up!
