    Started simplefit 2 weeks ago. I’m in barely decent shape, have 10-15 lbs of extra fat on me. I’m relatively active, but usually the last guy up the hills on my bike etc.

    Lvl 1, Day 1 – 27 rounds (went pretty easy)

    Lvl 1, Day 3 – 2:47 seconds

    (i did day 2 as well, i just don’t time it, so I won’t mention it in this log again unless for some reason I skip it)

    Lvl2, Day 1 – 31 rounds (pushed harder)

    Lvl2, Day 3 – 3:06 seconds (today) had to take 2 brief rests on pullups and 1 rest on pushups

    next week, lvl 3. I think I’ll probably go straight through to 5 and then get stuck there for a while, although the lvl4 day 3 has me a little worried!

    I’m doing pullups on a makeshift rope with 2 climbing carabiners attached to the end suspended from the balcony above my garden (like rings, just a little trickier to get a proper hold of). I don’t know if this is easier or harder than a bar. I’ll be moving in October, I hope to have a place to set up a bar there. pushups and squats are regular.

    thanks Ruli!

    Okay, straight to level 5 might have been a tad ambitious. I’m onto level 4, but without much room to spare.

    L3D1 – 17 rounds (ouch!) doubling the pull-ups from last week killed me (also, i screwed up and did the L4 exercises for the first 10 rounds)

    L3D3 – 4:38. Pass. (10-4-2 pullups) (20-9-4 pushups) (33 squats)

    Onto level 4, next friday I’ll really have to push hard to pass.

    I didn’t think today would take that long. I wonder – the last 2 fridays I did after 2.5 hours of rollerblading (after a bit of a break). This time I did it before. I think I’ll go back to after next week.

    Hi Ruli,

    yes, on level 5. This week I did level 1 (go back a few lvls once a month or so as per the recommendations). I like that because you really get to see your progress.

    L1D1 – 50 rounds! (27 first time i did it)

    L1D3 – 1:22 seconds (2:47 the first time i did it)

    skipped day 2 (hey, it’s meant to be a recovery week!)

    seriously, i’m shocked at the level of progression. next week, level 5. i imagine i will be on level 5 for a little while.

    Well, I moved house, then got sick, and simplefit fell to the wayside. I’m bringing it back now for round 2. This time I have a proper pullup bar too.

    Back to level 1 though, cause there’s no way I’m starting off at 5.

    Day 1: 45 rounds

    Day 3: 1:46 (7-3 pullups, 21 pushups, 21 squats)

    (skipped day 2, snowboarded 3 times this week and felt really sore)

    On to level 2 (again)

    Day 1: 38 rounds (31 first time)

    Day 3: 2:38 (8-3-2 pullups, 26 pushups, 26 squats) (3:06 first time)

    On to level 3
