Wow, good luck with that. It will get interesting towards the end of the year. I'm working on the 2009 push up challenge but I'm counting the SF push ups.

Are you counting the SF push ups and pull ups against the 2009 PUC?

Kevin and VBM thanks for the responses. This morning I did a 4 minute warm up on my Concept 2 rowing machine at a moderate pace (919 meters), rested a couple of minutes and then started L4 D1. I managed 7 rounds of 2/4/6 with good form in 5 minutes. It felt good but I didn't want to overdo it as my ...

SF and repetitive stress injuries?

I have been doing SF since last September and I'm really enjoying it and have seen some good progress. I started at L1 and last Friday I did L3D3 in less than 5 minutes ready to level up. As one of the older members here I'm noticing that my recovery time is longer than it used to be and that I'm mo...

L4D3 -- 4:54!

Ran it as follows:

8/10/10
4/10/10
2/10/10
2/11/11

The way I read that you did 8 pull ups followed by 10 push ups followed by 10 squats and then went back to do 4 pull ups. That's not how I understand D3 should be done?

Re: Anubis' Log

I can only get about 2/3 of the way up. It's that last bit to the top that is killing me. Interesting. That's the opposite of my struggle with pull ups. If my arms are just slightly bent I can pull through to the top. If my arms are straight (dead hang) I can't get started. My pull up bar is in the...

I think the level of description is just right. The videos eliminate the need for a lengthy description of the exercise which allows the words to get to the core of the program. One of my rules of thumb has been to fit things comfortably on a single page and your description meets that criteria.

Matt,

All you need is the before and after shots (just kidding)

Seriously, great job and excellent selection of videos.

Hi and welcome! Day 3 is the test. If you are able to complete day 3 in less than 5 minutes counting any rest time then you can move up a level. Try L1D3 for your next workout. If you complete it in less then five minutes try L2D3 on the next workout. Go to D3 of the next level each workout until yo...

Hi, I'm a lot older than you but it sounds like our body shape is very similar. I cycle a lot and my legs are in good shape. I had very little upper body strength when I started SF last September. I'm now on level 3, soon to level up to level 4. My upper body strength has improved dramatically. I co...

Hi XD45, I bought a Concept 2 rower last summer about the same time I started Simple Fit at level 1. I find that using the rower on Tuesdays, Thursdays and sometimes W/Es keeps the daily routine going. It would probably be best to start with light cardio on the rower as you might be sore after the S...
