    This is my eleventh week working out with Simplefit , so I thought I should post something.

    Background

    I am a 74 year old male, with two exceptions in good health. Exceptions COPD, smoked for 45 years, and MS , which is only a problem during a relapse,

    I have been working out fairly regularly for 10 years. Main problem is no wind.

    I am 5′ 8″ tall, weigh about 168 pounds, down from 194 a year ago, an plan to lose about 13 more pounds.

    Workouts:

    Week Level Day One Day Two Day Three

    Rounds Time Time

    One One 30 4:06 1:29

    Two Two 22 4:33 2:05

    Three Three 26 4:43 2:32

    Four One(R) 30 3:12 1:26

    Five Three* 25 5:35 1:50

    Six Four 21 5:31 3:38

    Seven Four** 22 5:28 3:16

    Eight Three(R) 25 4:42 2:08

    Nine Five 14 6:12 4:41

    Ten Six 20 7:13 6:20

    Eleven Six 22 6:38 5:05

    Comments * repeated Level three because as I was not happy with my form.

    ** repeated level four as I had to rest during push ups on day three.

    Thought if I can’t do 41 I sure won’t do 51 next week.

    (R) Rest week

    I wish I could say all Pull-ups are dead hang but after 12 or 13 there is a lot of kipping. Form on Push ups are ok,

    I am sure I cheat a little on range of motion to increase speed.

    This was to be in tab form but it’s readable. Sorry about that

    KTG; thanks for the Good Words

    Week TWELVE

    Rest Week

    Level Four

    Day One: 27 Rounds

    Day Two: 4:22

    Day Three 2:02

    Advantage of the rest weeks is it allows comparing with the the program in the past. 5 weeks ago my numbers were Day One 22 Rounds, Day Two 5:29 and Day Three 3:16 so I am improving.

    Level SIX (Third Time)

    Day One: 22 Rounds

    Day Two: 5:56

    Day Three: 4:28

    UNDER FIVE MINUTES BUT THE IMPROVEMENT IN TIME WAS UNFORTUNATELY ACHIEVED WITH A GREAT REDUCTION IN FORM.

    While I will try, I think that is the last level that I will be able to complete in under Five minutes

    When I can complete Level Seven with only taking a short blow after completing the pull ups and push ups, and providing my form is fairly good, I will consider going to the Eight level.

    With my COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) I will have to take the breaks. I will be very happy when I can do the Pull-ups without stopping, the Push-ups without stopping and the Squats without stopping. I am sure it will take a month or so.

    I had to take a break after twenty-eight Pull-ups and Forty-Eight and Fifty-Six Push-ups today.

    Still for an Old Man I am quite pleased with the effort to date.after

    My 14th Week

    Level 7

    Day 1 14 complete rounds (did this on Tuesday instead of usual Monday, moved back a day as COPD was bothering me)

    Day 2 9:01 (Lot of gasping for breath)

    Day 3 7:47 ( had to stop three times for breath during pull ups, same in push ups and twice during squats)

    Lots of room for improvement in time and form. I tried Hindu Squats this week which should go faster in time.

    Next week is REST WEEK and look forward to it. Think I will try level Five again and see if I am improving or going downhill.
