    Hello, everybody.

    My name is Ignacio and I’m new here.

    I’m starting at 38 years old, 1.70m (5′ 7″) and 70kg (154lbs).

    I’ve been overweight since 12 years old and I’ve dropped some 6/7kg (13/15lbs) in the last four months by changing my diet to some low carb/paleo.

    Week 1 (L1): 17 | 3:36 | 5:16

    Week 2 (L1): 21 | 3:04 | 3:24

    Week 3 (L2): 28 | 3:56 | 4:18

    Week 4 (L3): 17 | 4:22 | 6:47

    Week 5 (L3): 21 | 3:45 | 4:59

    Week 6 (L4): 21 | 6:09 | 8:09

    Nos vemos

    Ok. Here I am.

    Day 2 (L1D2): 3:36 (3 minutes pause)

    In the first round I did pullups but with really bad form. So I switched to chinups for the other four… a lot easier.

    I was really tired from Day 1 on monday. Tuesday, I went swimming and I did a really poor performance :mrgreen:. Yesterday I had to travel for work so I took the day off. Now, after Day 2 it doesn’t feel that bad.

    I’ll go back to pullups for Day 3 on saturday and we’ll see how it goes.

    Thank you!

    Today I swam a broken 2100 meters at slow pace as I’m still a little bit tired.

    Day 3 (L1D3): 5:16

    Pretty close to the five minutes mark but it was demanding.

    And the pullups are the hardest part by far.

    I made it in 2 pullups + (3+2+3) chinups.

    I also broke the pushups as I knew I couldn’t do the 21 straight out without reaching failure.

    So it was 8+8+5.

    The squats were the easiest part and I made just one set of 21.

    Day 4 (L1D1): 21 rounds

    Ok, that is 4+ rounds than last week but this time I started doing pullups and changed to chinups on the 9th round.

    Day 5 (L1D2): 3:04 (1 minute rest)

    Well, I read here and there, saw some videos and changed to neutral grip pull-ups (palms facing each other).

    I’ll stick with this because I find them easy to do with good form. Easier than pull-ups or chin-ups.

    Nice progress! For most of us the pull-ups have been the central challenge. Because of that, I think they are also the greatest glory.

    Thank you, ktg!

    You’re so right. Pull-ups are really demanding for me right now but it feels so good seeing some progress.

    Day 6 (L1D1): 3:24

    Pull-ups: 5+3+2 Push-ups: 14+7 Squats: 21

    Ready for level 2

    Day 7 (L2D1): 28 rounds

    A lot less rest between rounds and easier than before. I’m not sure why, though.

    EDIT: Good news is that the day after I’m tired but not sore at all.

    Great job! I expect you’ll move right on to L3 and greater pull-up glory.

    Thanks for the feedback. Well, I won’t deceive you…

    Day 9 (L2D3): 4:18

    pull-ups: 5+4+4; push-ups: 13+13; squats: 26

    Last week when I did L1D3 and it took me 3:24 it felt like too little work. So this time I did it twice. The second time it took me 9:53 with pull-ups: 3+3+3+3+1; push-ups: 10+8+8; squats: 26.

    I’ll see if I need to do this on L3…

    Day 10 (L3D1): 17 rounds

    Ok. It was hard. And I’m talking about the pull-ups of course. Now I’m thinking of taking two days off…
