    Hey guys,

    Just did my first workout yesterday, have been doing kettlebells for the last three months, but really want to work on bodyweight exercises right now.

    LEVEL ONE

    Week 1-Day one

    29 rounds for 20 minutes

    First five rounds I did proper full dead hang pull ups and the rest of the rounds were done band assisted. I was pretty happy with my push up technique, been flaring my elbows out for years but now I am concentrating on keeping them in nice and tight.

    I just realized with my assisted pull ups that I should have been doing 3 instead of just one, oh well I’m going to be redoing level one anyway so I will just finish out the week properly and work on it again next week.

    I really enjoyed today, mostly because I was able to get proper pull ups for all five rounds without having to resort to assistance. It will be interesting to see how many pull ups I can do on day 3, probably break them into separate sets to get a little rest.

    Level 1 day 3

    Pull ups-2.2,1

    Assisted pull ups-6,3,3,2,1

    Push ups-5,5,5,3.3

    Squats-21

    Time:8:03

    It definitely does not help to be carrying the extra bodyfat but 3 months ago I couldn’t do one pull up. Looking forward to next week and I can start this cycle all over again and see where I am at on level one day one.

    Week 2

    L1D1

    21 rounds

    I did the round properly this time, when I switched to assisted pull ups i did 3 for every one push up.this reduced my total rounds of course but I did manage 8 rounds with a full pull up as opposed to last week of 5 full pull ups.

    Went pretty well I thought, looking forward to Wednesday.

    first round was the same time and improved time on last four. I think my push ups were faster, I felt stronger doing them. Managed to get all my pull ups in but they are definitely the weak link.

    I just bought the primal blueprint a couple of days ago so today is the first day of eating a different way, hope to lose some bodyfat and have at least some of the results that Cheapo has had.

    I weigh 192lbs, started watching my calories in February when I weighed 207lbs. I am using the simplefit android app on my phone to keep track of my workouts, it’s pretty handy to have.

    Suprised myself and made it under 5 minutes today!

    No assisted pull ups today, very, very happy with this.

    3,3,2,2

    PUSH UPS

    10,5,,3,3

    SQUATS

    It must be the two pounds I lost this week because I really wasn’t expecting this result! I thought I would be doing week one again.

    You blew day three out of the water! Excellent work on the un-assisted pull-ups…those definitely seem to be the most difficult part for most people around here.
