    my first workout using simplefit. subbed the pull up. started from standing on a bench and lower myself sloowwwly count of five or six.

    L1D1 22

    i manage 7 more than i thought i would. i have a while to go on level one i can tell , but how do you determine the right time to move up a level.

    I think the general rule is when you can do Day 3 in less than five minutes you should level up.

    Hi rob,

    I didn’t level up until I had “real” pullups. Some are of the opinion that you should level up anyway – it’s up to you.

    Yeah, it’s really up to you. One way I proposed to someone earlier was to progress through the levels using your substitutions and periodically move back down to Level 1 to try to do it as Rx’d.

    I don’t think anyone is going to get on your case either way though. :D

    Well, whenever anyone asks about it, I say that I don’t really care how you do it, if you’re doing Level 8, then I consider it a good workout. Yeah, maybe if you’re going dead hang pull-ups for L8 (if that’s even possible in under 5 minutes) I’ll consider that more of an accomplishment over kipping pull-ups but either way it’s a helluva workout.

    L1D2=4:49

    same sub for pull up but this time i used overhand and wider grip

    i realize i had a huge gap between workouts. i have not been sleeping well and working 12 hr days i have been exausted by the time i get home and prolly wouldnt have been able to finish. 2 hrs sleep and a 12 hr work day just dont mix. 😥

    How far down are you squatting? I go past parallel, so I am pretty much going butt to heel. I feel/felt the burn big time. Even if you don’t feel the burn, I’d think you might just wanna stick to the program. Give your upper body a chance to catch up to your lower body. But what do I know, I’ve been doing this for a week :)

    Nice job, btw, this stuff is a lot harder than it looks!!

    Or just do tabata squats after the workout. That’s what I did in the beginning.

    You do as many squats as you can in 20 seconds, then rest 10 seconds. Repeat for 8 rounds. Your “score” is the lowest number of squats you do in a round. My best score so far is 16.

    Seriously, try it, I guarantee you won’t be complaining about not feeling it in your legs. Plus it only takes a few minutes.
