Re: RadRobe's Log

That's great progress. In my experience it is all pretty incremental. You never feel like you are really killing it in any one week, but over time you go from struggling on a few pull-ups, to knocking out 7-10 without too much grief. Stay safe! Thanks KTG, appreciate the support! I moved up to leve...

Re: RadRobe's Log

Level 2 (Third week of Simplefit) Day 1: 1/3/4 27 times through. I had food poisoning up until about 6 hours before the workout, so I felt weak. However, I was able to push through the weakness. 12 of the 27 were full pull ups, though not from a deadhang. The rest were with my 50lbs exercise band, a...

Re: RadRobe's Log

D3/L1 10/21/21 for time. Finished in 2:54. Did 2 decent quality neutral grip pulls, then a mediocre chin, then did the next 7 with the help of an exercise band. Push ups were a joke as usual. Squats have gotten more painful lately, as I go down lower than I used to. Still not too hard tho. I'm going...

Re: RadRobe's Log

D2/L1 (Second time) 3:06 Great improvement from last week. Was able to do 4 out of the 5 sets without modifying pull ups. (didn't really go all the way down on some, but close is better than not doing real pull ups at all) On the last set I was only able to do 1 rep so I did six assisted to make up ...

KTG,

I just read your whole log and your persistance is inspiring. I hope I can get where you're at with pull ups. Good work!

Re: RadRobe's Log

Thanks KTG. D1/L1 (second time) 1/2/3 as many times in 20 minutes. I cranked out 27 rounds. Out of those, 4 rounds were with legit pull ups. On the rest I did chair assisted pulls, either 1 or 2 depending on how strong my lats were feeling that round. Push ups are a joke at this point. I adjusted my...

Re: RadRobe's Log

D3/L1 Ok, so the normal D3/L1 is 10/21/21, but I was doing body rows so I tried for 30/21/21. I couldn't finish 30 rows. i had muscle failure on my fourth set of rows at 24 so I stopped. I did 10/21/21 in 1:35, but it took me 3:45 to get 24/21/21. Next week I'm going to repeat level 1 doing neutral ...

Re: RadRobe's Log

D2/L1 6/6/10 4:54 total (minus short breaks between sets) Was supposed to do 2/6/10, modified it to 6/6/10 as I'm doing body row/austrailian pull ups instead of actual pull ups. 52/48/45/51/51 for a total of 4:54. I struggled a bit with the body rows at the end but managed to crank them out. I may s...

Re: Benhamine's Log

Benhamine, Great log. Keep up the progress! I have the same issues with pull ups. I'm doing horizontal pulls ups until I can do a real one. I read that you're supposed to do 3 supplemental pull ups for each regular one you would normally do, so I'm gonna try that out next workout. Also, I've been do...

Bri,

Great log. Can't believe you've kept the log going for 5 years! Do you do exclusively crossfit now?

Thanks Bri, I appreciate the support.

I was sore this morning in my quads, biceps, triceps, and back. Definitely a good workout.

Re: RadRobe's Log

Day 1/Level 1 Alright, day 1 is: 1 Austrailian Pull Up/ 2 Push Ups/ 3 Squats, how many sets in 20 minutes. I focused on form and was able get 36 rounds. I wish I was able to get real pull ups, but I wanted to do an exercise I had enough strength to tightly control my form and my crappy chin up form ...
