    Last week, my boss sent an email to all project managers and team leaders telling us that he’s planned a mandatory bonding day on his boat. This will involve bathing suits. My goal is not concrete in terms of weight or size, but I would like to look as good as possible in a bathing suit in three weeks’ time. I don’t set a weight or inches goal because I don’t know what numbers would constitute accomplishment of what I envision. Nevertheless, that’s my goal.

    To accomplish this, I think next week I will step up to the next level. Now that I have rings in place this will be possible without being able to do all of the pull ups with perfect form. Here’s what I’m going to do: Level 2: sub 3 ring pull ups for each recommended pull up. After the first week, if my legs can handle the new challenge, I will hold small weights in my hands while I do my squats. This should give my lower body the extra challenge that it wants without over-exerting my upper body.

    What do you guys think?

    Sounds like a plan to me!

    Sounds good. One point to consider: see if a L1 is enough of a challenge with the weights added to your squats. Just a thought…

    I am starting to tweak my pushups to make the L1 challenge a me a bit more while I’m still working on perfecting the pullups. I might add weight to the squats too.

    By the way – did I mention how proud I am that you didn’t ditch?

    Glad to see both you and aussiechick representing the women so well. I grew up with three sisters. One of them was an All-American Volleyball player. I’m not afraid of a little bit of estrogen in the gym…

    Thanks Ladies!

    Thank you for all your support! I’ll give your idea about just adding weight some thought this weekend. I did think about that but wanted to accelerate my progress since my legs want it. But maybe small steps are better.
