good stuff, its nice to mix in different excercises. I was going to start doing some kettlebell training and mixing it all up somehow. These new workouts sound pretty cool and will help out a ton just by giving me more options. Thanks!April 19, 2007 at 1:23 am #108601 The more verity the less adaptation, keep your body guessing and you will not plateau. From what I have experienced the base three workouts contain enough variance to keep steady progress through L8 but it is hard to have to much variety,

Oh ya, I gotta say one thing. I’m in decent shape and not too heavy (6′, 178 lbs.) but for the life of me, I can’t do a handstand. Any good guides or something to help out? I tried against a wall but I think I’m just afraid to totally commit and throw my legs all the way up or something, heh.April 19, 2007 at 1:42 am #108603 Defiantly do them against a wall or draping your legs over something.
I am pretty sure you will find good info here.
I will see what other notes I have.

it’s fine to have those exercices for those who want more variety ( detailed explanations will be helpful though as some are not common).
As to myself, I think I will stick to the more simple workout. The thing is, it is so simple, so time optimized, that you simply cannot come up with a valid excuse for not doing it
Thanks again for all your work Kevin !April 20, 2007 at 2:16 am #108605
I think the core simplefit workout is awesome, it is a complete whole body high intensity interval workout with varying strength/strength endurance levels and will give you and amazing core fitness level so stick with that if you like it most.

I was looking through the days 4-7 additional workouts, but I’m not sure what an “inverted” pullup is. Is there anywhere that describes the motion? I couldn’t find any information from doing a brief search on Google.April 24, 2007 at 3:29 am #108607 Sorry I have not had time to update the site. An inverted pull up is basically a pull done up upside down. I do it by getting inverted on my rings and pulling my feet towards the ceiling.
Best to start with the core 3 for a while unless you are already pretty well conditioned.
Here is a good resource

Could you suggest me an optional workout that includes situps. I am in the military and I need to stay up on that.
maybe something like………
x amount/time pushups
x amount/time situps
x amount/time squatsApril 25, 2007 at 2:32 am #108609
I would recommend integrating sit ups into the existing workouts for example
max rounds in 20 min
10 sit ups
5 rounds for time
30 sit ups
50 sit ups
to increase numbers fast avoid going to failure
also look at other ab exercises like l sits l hangs and evil wheels and mix it up
Hope that helps
