    L3D1: 28 Rounds

    Hello everyone. A little background: I’m 27 years old, 6’0″ tall. For most of my adult life I have been 145 pounds with spaghetti arms and a pot belly. Right now I am 154 pounds, but that’s after gaining muscle and losing fat, so I am in MUCH better shape than I’ve ever been before. Having never exercised on any regular basis, I moved into a new apartment last year that has a pullup bar and some machines, and I fell into the habit of using them. I had no aim and just kind of made up my own program, though, and I’ve hit a plateau. My body is not changing anymore. I feel I need to switch over to a set regimen that is constantly challenging. Also, I’m reading how working out on Nautilus machines is inefficient and can give you a lot of bad habits that need to be undone for a real strength training program. I don’t have easy access to free weights, don’t have a workout partner, and right now I don’t have the time it would take to work out all the inevitable form issues of a complete beginner, so bodyweight training with a pullup bar is a good fit for me. I’m starting off on level 3 and working out on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

    The workout I have been doing until recently has been two days on, one day off, consisting of:

    Pullups: 4 sets to failure (typical numbers are 13, 8, 7, 7)

    Pec Machine : warm up with light weights, then go to failure with 120 lbs.

    Rows: warm up with light weights, then do 15 at 135 lbs.

    Dips: 16

    Sit ups: 60 at an incline

    “Bench Presses” on a Nautilus machine: warm up with light weights, then go to failure at 90 lbs.

    I also run between 1 and 4 miles 5 days a week, which I know is not advisable for someone who wants to gain weight, but it keeps me feeling good.

    I had never done a bodysquat before starting this program, so my legs are sore.

    L3D3:

    I broke it down in this order:

    11 pullups

    33 squats

    21 pushups

    5 pullups

    12 pushups

    Overall time: 2:30

    I was not expecting that kind of time. My groin is very sore but it didn’t affect my range of motion on the squats. I need to resist the urge to go running over the next couple of days to get over my soreness for the next endurance workout.

    L4D1: 28 rounds.

    I got 22 rounds done in the first 14 minutes and felt like I was going to vomit.

    I think I have been holding my feet at too wide an angle when doing the squats. When I put them more parallel, the strain on my groin went away.
