    Ok workout 1 done, whew! I was both dreading and really looking forward to this first workout I knew it was going to be tough.

    37 or 38 rounds in 20 mins not sure which, I had trouble keeping count. I need to find a simple method of keeping count of my rounds. I was hoping to get 40 rounds in so that will be my goal for next week.

    I stuck to the 1 modified pullup using 1 leg on a box but really made sure I didn’t use any more leg than necessary – kept them slow and controlled which was quite hard when racing the clock. Pushups I had to mix up quite a bit I did the 1st 10 rounds on my toes onto a 12″ step, then a moved to my knees on the floor and then finally to my knees on the step but its all good. Also had to run back and forth between the pull-up bar in the hall and the lounge room for pushups so I was getting my cardio in there too LOL. Plenty of room for improvement.

    Its not very often I have felt this wiped and out and also this energised after a workout, its a great feeling.

    I do my exercise outside in a park, which is a mulch ground. I place a piece on a curb after each rep, then counting them after 20 minutes. Maybe some variant for you?

    5 rounds in 5.01 minutes.

    Felt great and I was happy with my time, took the full 3 minutes rest inbetween to make sure I was fresh for each round.

    I did the pushups from my knees onto the step as I followed a link from this site to a pushup video from crossfit people and they stated it was better to do full range of motion on the knees than to go to the toes and do shallow ones. I think I might do a few planks throughout the day also to try to build up my core strength.

    Thanks for the suggestion ucffool, yes I think I will put a pile of the kids lego or something and swap a piece over after each round of the day 1 workouts.

    Good job!

    I have a cheap digital watch that has a lap timer. I use it to count my rounds.

    3.44 mins

    I did 2 x 5 pullups and 2 x 5 chinups (with leg assist) with about 15 sec rest between sets. Back and shoulders are fried now :D

    21 pushups, nice deep ones from the knees onto the step, brief pause after rep 14. I’ll move to the floor next week, I did have a niggling pain deep in the chest when I did push-ups after day1 but that was gone today.

    Squats were good.

    I keep having to fight the feeling that I’m cheating by doing these nice short workouts even though I know I am working hard.

    Using your knees to get the full range of motion is the way to go, keep up the good work!

    L1D1, again, 42 rounds

    did the pushups on my knees and with hands on a 12″ step.

    Wow D1 really is tough, I was sweating buckets and red in the face – felt great! Also I worked out barefoot on carpet and now have a little carpet burn on top of one foot from getting up and down for those darn knee pushups.

    Used a notepad and put a stroke after each round to keep count, I will be checking out a watch with a lap timer one day too but the notepad worked just fine for now.

    Any thoughts on whether I should move onto level2 next week? Do I wait until I can do the pushups from my toes? Should I being doing some extra pushups on the inbetween days, will that speed the process or hinder? I will be modifying the pullups for a long time to come.

    Back again after a 5 days away, 2 of which involved sitting in the car all day – that is harder on my body than working out!

    Didn’t keep as active as I would have liked while away, nasty weather and a house full of people and all that. Thankfully I got a chance to try a playstation dance game and had some fun and exercise with that.

    Anyway back into it today with L1D2 again.

    Hey – I am approaching the level changes as a purist. I won’t move until I can complete the requirements without substituting the exercises. I see some in here who don’t have the same view as I do – and that’s ok. I am doing little tweaks to the L1 workouts to help me progress to where I can really move up. I am not trying to lose a lot of weight or drastically change my aerobic capacity. I am working on the “strength before strength endurance” part (I really just want those pullups!).

    You choose!

    L1D1 for the third time.

    I’m taking VBM’s advice and staying here until I’m doing all the pushups properly.

    Ok so today I moved to doing the pushups on the floor from my knees, so my rounds went back to 31. I’m happy with that I was hoping to get 30. I had to stop and rest for 30 secs 3 or 4 times (just kept the clock running though).
