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.
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.April 24, 2013 at 1:16 am #124090
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.April 24, 2013 at 11:49 pm #124091 Level 1 day 2
3:18 total time
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.April 25, 2013 at 3:31 pm #124092KTGParticipant
Great start! Welcome on board.April 25, 2013 at 7:31 pm #124093 Thanks KTG,
I actually read through most of your log yesterday, very inspiring!April 26, 2013 at 5:17 pm #124094
Level 1 day 3
Assisted pull ups-6,3,3,2,1
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.April 29, 2013 at 9:06 pm #124095
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.April 30, 2013 at 5:20 pm #124096JoJoParticipant
Keep it up! You’ll be amazed how fast you progress.May 2, 2013 at 12:49 am #124097 Week 2
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.May 2, 2013 at 4:03 am #124098230lbsParticipant
Those times are incredible! Good job! How much do you weigh right now?May 2, 2013 at 8:00 am #124099230lbs wrote:

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.May 3, 2013 at 2:01 pm #124100KTGParticipant
Nice progress on those pull-ups!May 3, 2013 at 3:46 pm #124101 Thanks, I’m enjoying it.May 4, 2013 at 2:02 am #124102 Week two
Level 1 Day 3
Suprised myself and made it under 5 minutes today!
No assisted pull ups today, very, very happy with this.
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.May 4, 2013 at 6:35 pm #124103brmc72Participant
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.
