    hey i’m new here..

    I’m a 23yo old male 6’1″ and weigh roughly 174lb

    Said i’d keep a log as maybe i’ll be more strict on myself!

    L1D1 – 18 rounds

    Just to clarify – I did the pull-ups from dead hang up to dead hang down.. about 4 secs ( 2 & 2) hands at shoulder width.. is this right? (found them extremely difficult after round 12…

    I also got push-up handles (they came with the chin-up bar) so they’re makin the push-ups a little better for form..

    Squats seem to be no problem..

    Also on day 3 am i sposed to do 10 pull-ups dead hang? I can do pull-ups but i can;t do 10 dead-hang in a row.. can i do 5 stop and then do 5? As long as i count it in the final time?

    Thanks hope to hear from you guys.

    good luck..

    Welcome here AB !

    You will find that keeping a log indeed helps.

    I also do dead hand pullups. You can mix pullups and chinups.

    On D3 it’s the same technique, but you don’t have to do 10 pullups in a row though… 5+5 is okay, 2+2+2+2+2 is okay also etc …

    Have fun !

    Cheers Norman, where are you positioning your hands on the bar? Or are you mixing it up?

    L1D2 – 6:24

    I had to leave 2 days before i could do day 2.. think i pulled every muscle in my upper body on day 1.. still sore..

    this could have been alot better only for i was in pain!

    A chin-up uses a palm facing you grip. A pull-up uses a palms-away grip. You can also use a mixed grip.

    Chin-ups will bring the biceps into play more and are generally easier for most people. Pull-ups really target the back and are generally harder because less supporting muscles are used.

    Play with it, mix it around.

    pretty dissapointed with that.. i just couldnt do the chin-ups without a good few breaks..

    Hopefully i’ll improve this week..

    That’s the hard part for nearly everyone… don’t worry, you are looking to improve, not be perfect. Good work!

    Well done, that’s pretty cool that you knocked almost 90 seconds off your time!!

    When are you levelling up? I did it after 2 weeks as you can compare times from you previous week.

    I would assume a level up for anna begins to be a little while off, while his day 3 time comes down to < 5 minutes.

    Shaved off a good bit there.

    So you reckon another week off L1? I’d like to do another one so i can do the 10 dead hang chin-ups with no breaks. if i can do that i will be able to do day 3 in < 5:00min. Thanks again for comments.

    Don’t level up till you get Day 3 down to less than 5 minutes.

    Hopefully it won’t take 3 weeks for every level… My chin-up’s have gotten a lot better though.
