Okay, let’s get this started: 12 March 2011: L1D1 : 44 rounds 14 March 2011: L1D2 : 4 min 14 sec
L1D3 tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll get it under the 5 minute mark. The chin-ups will be the biggest problem, I think. (I use the chin-up variation at the moment. I’ll start mixing them with pull-ups once I get, erm, the hang of it.)March 15, 2011 at 12:08 pm #120812cheapoParticipant
Hey, welcome aboard!March 15, 2011 at 1:24 pm #120813NeilfensteinParticipant Welcome, great start!
I have seen great benefits with this program so far and I keep progressing!
Good luck!March 16, 2011 at 6:15 am #120814
Thanks guys! 16 March 2011 L1D3
I’ll start level 2 next week. I expect that real troubles start there. I need to cut some serious weight if I want to keep progressing.March 16, 2011 at 6:30 am #120815cheapoParticipant
Way to go!March 16, 2011 at 1:40 pm #120811NeilfensteinParticipant Well done!March 20, 2011 at 4:02 am #120816 19 March 2011
Crossfit! I found out that there is an affiliate nearby, so I went to have a test run with a friend. Here’s the workout:
7 minutes AMRAP:
7 x box jump (with 60 cm high box)
7 x kettlebell swing (I used a 16 kg kbell)
7 x push-up
Damn, it was devastating! Brutal! I think that I’ll need to be at least at level 4 or 5 before trying again. I’m glad that I found SimpleFit so I’ll have efficient means to improve my basic fitness.
Also, my lower back is killing me right now. I’ve hurt it before while weightlifting and I guess those hurried kb-swings didn’t agree with it.
Oh well, L2D1 tomorrow!March 21, 2011 at 12:42 am #120817
21 March 2011 L2D1
I felt incredibly sluggish today. Maybe it was the Saturday’s crossfit session or maybe lack of sleep is finally getting to me. Anyway, I feel that I could have done better but I guess I’m happy with this result, considering the circumstances.
Oh, and I jumped to the first squat straight from the push-up. Is this ok?March 23, 2011 at 8:03 am #120818
23 March 2011 L2D2 : 5:11.1
I was really surprised that I was able to do all the chin-ups in straight sets, without resting between reps. The last set was hard though, but I made it. The chin-ups are still the hardest part for me, although it’s getting more even with longer sets of push-ups and squats.March 25, 2011 at 9:00 am #120819
25 March 2011 L2D3 :
13 chin-ups (3+2+2+2+1+1+1+1)
26 push-ups (1×26)
26 squats (1×26)
The chin-ups are obviously still the hardest part, but I really started to feel the push-ups too!March 27, 2011 at 4:23 am #120821

Boxing training with friends. Alternating rounds with focus mitts and heavy bag. Afterwards we hit the gym and I did chest press, lat pull-downs and cable wood chops.March 30, 2011 at 8:12 am #120822
30 March 2011 L3D1 :
26 roundsApril 1, 2011 at 7:42 am #120823
1 April 2011 L3D2 : 5:12.2
Ach, now I realize that I should’ve recorded the time for each round separately. Oh well, next time.
I’m very pleased with the chin-up progress: this time I could do them with much purer form, with less kipping and felt more comfortable doing them. Something I wouldn’t have believed just a few weeks ago.
Squats are still the easiest part. Maybe I’ll do them prisoner-style next time if I don’t get to level 4.April 3, 2011 at 9:44 pm #120824
4 April 2011 L3D3
16 chin-ups (3+2+2+2+2+2+1+1+1)
33 push-ups (30+3)
Made it, ma! Level 4! Just barely, though – a couple more chin-ups and I wouldn’t have made it. I have a feeling that I’ll spend a looong time at L4. That’s all right, I have all the time in the world!April 7, 2011 at 6:39 am #120820
7 April 2011 L4D1
24 rounds in 20 minutes. Funny thing, the pull-ups were giving me trouble again, but then I remembered a trick from an
I read a while back: I started to lean back a little bit and pulled towards my rib cage. Boom! Instant power-up! article
It’s raining outside. Glad I didn’t have to go out for my exercise
