    Week 1

    D1L1

    My first day with Simplefit.

    14 rounds. Had to do subs for pull-ups after some rounds.

    Squats seemed (too) easy. Maybe I should use a medicine ball or kettle bell – but make sure I improve my technique first.

    Had two kids climbing on me for some of the time but it worked pretty well.

    Just what I need – a program that can be done at home with the kids running around :)

    D2L1

    Time: 06:41

    Much harder today! Still stiff from my first day.

    Not able to do full pull-ups. I pull myself up as far as I get, and then lower myself controlled.

    Maybe it would be better to do subs?

    Guess my push-up technique could be better – at least I’m a little bit uncertain about correct form when I get tired.

    Squats seemed easy first day – today it was hard enough :)

    16 rounds. Have to work with the pull-ups. After a while I substituted with negatives. Looking forward to be able to do them right!

    Will stay a L1 until I’m able to do the pull-ups right.

    D2L1

    Time 4:42

    Think I will be ready to level up next week.

    D3L1

    Time 7:34

    Not so sure about level up after week 3. Pull ups are still the weakest point.

    22 rounds!

    I really sees the improvement.

    D2L1

    Time 3:47

    I’m finally able to do real pull ups!! After just 3 weeks.

    Starting to wonder what to do in my rest week.. I’m already down on the lowest level.

    And a little bit worried to start so hard so I get injuries. Any advices??

    Maybe I just do some sport climbing and rest totally from Simplefit.

    D3L1

    Time 3:48

    Time to level up!! Really happy with my progress.

    Guess I just gonna take a ‘calm’ L1 week for my rest week – and then level up.

    22 rounds. No improvement from last week, but I think form was better.

    D2L2

    Time 5:53

    D3L2

    Time 5:09. A hard day and lack of motivation. The time was better than expected – but form was so good.

    Rounds 25. New personal best. But I’ve have some struggles with motivation. Hope it will get better soon.

    (might skip D2 this week – at least rest one day extra – some issues with my right shoulder).

    D2L2

    Time 5.07

    Skipped day 3 because of issues with the shoulder…

    Restweek – but since I skipped day 3 and waited some days to start it was more like 2 weeks than one.

    Rounds 15

    So hard to start again after the pause/rest. Think I could have done at least 30 rounds, but the motivation was *low*.

    D2L2

    Time: 5:49

    I actually have become stronger during my rest! Needed that to keep the motivation up!

    D3L2

    Time 4:19

    Level 3 here I come!

    Took it easy. My push-up form is still improving, think it’s quite good now ;) Motivation is coming back!

    D2L3

    Time: 6:22

    Missed day 3 because of work and family :)

    keep it up! progress comes quickly, then you plateau, then it comes quickly, then the kids take over and you have to start over ;-)

    Thanks you for your reply!

    I looked at your log, and I think we have some of the same goals.

    I’m 37 yo, 183 cm (6′) and 62.6kg (138 lbs) when I started.

    Hope to build some muscles and gain some weight. My goal is 70kg (154 lsb) ;)

    Having three small children I needed a simple program :D

    I’m not done with simplefit yet – and I have not quit :)

    But have not been able to follow the program truly for the last weeks (been out travelling a bit and other things)

    But I still try to keep it up!

    At the moment I’m at level 4 (but maybe I should go back to level 3 again..?)

    Think my goal is to finish level 5/6 and then change to Start bodyweight (http://startbodyweight.com/)

    I will try to update my log soon
