    L1D1= 37 reps

    I did 11 pull-ups, then subbed bodyweight rows for the rest. I was as horizontal as I could get! Really worked my grip, too!

    I’m 43, 5’10”, 238 lbs. I have always struggled with my weight. On the upside, I was 280 a few years ago!

    L2D1- 33 reps. 10 real pull-ups, the rest substituted by 3 reps with a towel over the bar.

    I did L1D1 last Wednesday, and did pretty well. Skipped L1D2 and L1D3 and went straight to this level.

    L2D2- 4:44

    The log does not appear to be working at present.

    welcome to SF dok!

    if you stick to the program and eat right, you shouldn’t struggle with your weight.

    Thanks, Ruli!

    L2D3- 4:07

    I probably should skip Level 3, but I want to work on my “actual” pull-up numbers. So that’s where I’ll start next week.

    Also, on L2D2 I didn’t stop the clock during my rest periods, so that time was considerably shorter than what I posted.

    Actually went ahead and skipped to L4D1.

    L4D1=21 reps.

    7 of real pull-ups. The rest subbed by 6x body rows. (towel over bar, body horizontal underneath)

    L4D2=5:24

    (I remembered to stop the clock during rest periods this time!)

    First three rounds real pull-ups. Round four Body rows (12x). Round five “jumping” pull-ups (12x).

    L4D3=7:12

    Twelve real pull-ups. Subbed 3x bodyweight rows for three reps, the rest 3x “jumping” pull-ups. (about 3:30 of the time)

    Push-ups=25+10+6 with 30-45 seconds rest between sets. ( I have a tendency to strain a neck muscle if I go much past 25 reps at a time in push-ups, so I always break it up.)

    Squats=all one set

    It’s really the pull-ups that slow me down, but that’s pretty much everyone’s experience, isn’t it?

    So, it looks like I’ll be repeating Level 4 next week!

    L4D1=25 reps

    10 real pull-ups/chin-ups. 10 jumping pull-ups (3x=1 rep) 5 bodyweight rows (3x=1 rep)

    A four rep improvement from last week! And I spent all day yesterday raking pine straw into a shredder and then bagging it. That’s got to be a workout instead of a “rest day!” 😮

    L4D2=4:25

    First set chin-ups, second set neutral grip pull-ups, third set standard pull ups (last one subbed with 6x jumping pull-up,) fourth set 12x jumping pull-ups, last set 12x bodyweight rows.

    One minute shorter than last week! So, about about a 20%-ish improvement on D1 and D2 in one week. I’m looking forward to D3!

    L4D3=4:45

    Wow. My heart is still pounding!

    Pull-ups; 10 w/neutral grip, 5 bodyweight rows (3x=1 rep), 5 jumping pull-ups (3x=1 rep)

    Push-ups; 25, 14, 2 about 10-15 seconds rest between each set

    Squats; all 41 in one set

    I’m pleased with my progress!

    Next week I’ll drop back down to level 1 for a rest week. I’ll be very interested to see what effect that has on my pull-ups as I progress to level 5 the week after!

    Rest week.

    Mostly real pull-ups though! Maybe 10 subbed w/jumping pull-ups (3x=1 rep)

    Rest Week.

    L1D2=2:20

    All real pull-ups.

    I’m doing my best to do as many real pull-ups as possible with good form. It’s tough!
