    I started on level 7…so D3 is 40/80/80…how do you know when to move up…

    I did the workout in 14:20…I compared myself to others using the site and saw times around 5 minutes…is that right? Are they counting any rest time?

    I am starting my second week of this today, so I will do level 7 again this week.

    Do a Day 3. If you can do that Day 3 work out under 5 minutes, you can advance to the next level.

    Yep, rest time is counted in D3.

    The reason you’re seeing a lot of times around the 5 minute mark is because the Simplefit rule of thumb is to level up when we can do D3 in less than 5 minutes.

    It’s entirely up to you what level you work at but personally I’d consider dropping down to Level 4 or 5 and then working your way up. Without knowing your current situation (age, current fitness, diet etc.) jumping straight into L7 may be a bit too much but of course that’s just my opinion.

    I am in decent shape…I did L7D1 today…I did 20 rounds in 20 minutes. I don’t see how dropping on D1 and D2 is going to help me for D3 if I can manage the workouts…

    Now 5 minutes will be tough, I know I can improve on 14 minutes…

    Try L6D3 and see if you are under 5.

    OK, may try this…I just don’t see if you hold good form – Pull up all the way up and all the way down, Push ups w/chest touching floor and a full range squat how you are to do 40 pullups/80 push ups and 80 squats in 5 minutes.

    Remember there is a fine line between good form and intensity. This doesn’t mean that good form isn’t something to strive for, but as far as Day 3 goes, you’re looking for intensity and while good form and strict movements have their place, doing Day 3 with perfect form over 10 minutes, isn’t as intense as using 80% perfect form and completing in 5 minutes.
