    Day 1:

    31 rounds in 20 minutes

    subbed body rows for most of the pullups

    Nice job! 31 rounds is impressive.

    Thanks! I think I could have done maybe three more but I had to find a towel for my pullup subs.

    L1D2: 4:26 (subbing 3 body rows per pullup)

    Thinking I’m gonna level up next week… my legs aren’t fatigued at all.

    L2D1: 38 rounds

    again, no real leg fatigue but my upper body certainly felt it. I didn’t come close to failure though… could likely have continued for another 5-10 minutes.

    Any thoughts on upping the leg challenge in D1? Weighted squats maybe?

    Make sure you are doing a proper air squat first. When I started, I wasn’t (and really couldn’t). After I did the actual move I was amazed at the difference. Now, don’t get me wrong, you might be doing them right!

    Watch this vid and check your form:

    Thanks for the tips… I videoed myself, compared to the crossfit vid.

    Weight on heels, check.

    Shoulders aligned with ankles, all the way down, check

    Good lumbar curve (although I think my torso could remain more vertical. this could be key)

    I think the secret is going to be slowing them down… after practicing 15, I could at least tell that my legs were awake, so that’s something!

    I leveled up mid week, is that allowed?

    L3D2: 7:49

    added 1:30 of plank, and 20 jumping/scissor lunges per leg to finish.

    L3D3: 5:05

    subbed body rows for pullups (did one clean reverse at the end, though… I can tell the difference in strength in a major way)

    30 jumping lunges, 3 minutes (1:30 before, 1:30 after workout) of plank

    2 clean one legged squats standing on a box

    I’m loving this program, and can see striations on my shoulders already. Whoo!

    L4D1: 25 rounds

    subbed body rows for most of the pullups, did reverses/negatives for three rounds I think

    maybe a little rushed… I’ve started doing pullups with a jump, holding at the top, and releasing (3:1 substitution)

    pushups need to develop greater depth.
