I love Simplefit, pullups/pushups/squats… that trio of exercises is seriously hard to beat, complete full body workout.
From following simplefit on and off for the last 4 or 5 years, I’ve come to a number of conclusions as to why I kept changing routines and not really getting the results I’ve been after.
I think it generally comes down to what our bodies best respond to, for me personally, it’s slightly different variations of simplefit exercises.
As a “skinnyfat” type build, I want ideally a bigger upper chest, triceps and bigger biceps.
My modifications to simplefit:
Diamond Pushups instead of regular Pushups
Close Grip Chinups instead of regular Pullups.
Running and Cycling – as much as my time permits!
Going to start off on level 3 of simpefit and see how I get on.February 6, 2014 at 9:34 pm #124445

Comments: Started Day1 on thursday, so ideally wanted to get training days completed faster to get back onto a M/W/F split, so did day2 and day3 on same day. Bit of a endurance day on Saturday, did day2 SF followed by 45min HIIT on bike, followed by 3.3mile run and ending with SF day3. Felt good.

Total miles cycled: 40.3 milesFebruary 10, 2014 at 8:22 pm #124446

Comments on day1: Brutal and savage mixed together. These Diamond pushups are destroying me; the last set on round 30 and my face literally smashed into the floor..
I gave it everything (had special motivation today… )March 21, 2014 at 8:24 pm #124447cheapoParticipant
Go Dro , go!March 24, 2014 at 7:34 am #124448 Best time on level 6 is 5:33, so will hopefully progress to 7 shortly!
Thrown in kettlebell work on offdays for additional conditioning…. losing spare weight does wonders for the pullups, feel so effortless (initially! !)March 25, 2014 at 3:55 pm #124449chongtxtxParticipant
Awesome good job for losing the weight. I am trying to throw in some jogging just to do something more. I do like getting in yoga as well.July 10, 2014 at 5:55 pm #124450 Pushup Variant: Diamond
Pullup Variant: Close Grip Chinup
Squats Variant: Regular
Test Day to re-establish current level:
D3L3: 4:12 – Level 3 standard complete.
Will return on level 4.. assuming I can find a pullup bar in the states!July 21, 2014 at 11:33 am #124451
Just a quick post.
Basically I’ve been on holiday in the States (CT).. unable to find anything that remotely resembles a pullup bar…
Tried tree brances and even a kids playground.
Really frustrates me how dip and pullup stations are not a standard bit of equipment in parks etc!
Anyhow, been running 5 miles a day and just doing pushup variations as a kick start.
Will restart simplefit Mon 28th on level 4.
