    Hi there,

    I’m new to fitness in general, and I’m doing SimpleFit in order to regain strength after a few years without sport.

    My main goal is to strengthen my core and arms in order to climb harder (I rock climb 2 times a week)

    I’m 25 years old, 1,76m (5’9″) and 75kg (165 pounds)

    I have ankylosing spondylitis, which is why I couldn’t exercise for a while. It’s now under control and I lead a fairly normal life.

    I had my first round of simplefit today, without pull-ups since I don’t own a bar and have no place to do subs.

    Day 1 (L1D1): 21 rounds.

    Welcome to Simplefit. I had to look it up, but that AS thing sounds like a pretty tough challenge. Good to hear that it is under control.

    Door frame pull-up bars work pretty well–about $30 online. I would think that working on pull-ups would be a good thing for your climbing.

    21 rounds is a great start.

    Thanks, the community seems great.

    The 21 rounds messed me up with delayed onset muscle soreness for the rest of the week… I asked for advice from my rhumatologist, and she said I should halve the times, so 10 minutes instead of 20, etc.

    I don’t have any doors that can accomodate the pull up bars i’ve seen, unfortunately.
