L1 D3

Post by jennyfit »

Alrighty, first official week of Simple Fit is finished. I did 3 body rows for every 1 pull-up. And my last 6 push-ups I did standing up on the wall.

L1 D3:10 pull-ups (30 body rows)
21 push-ups (on knees-last 6 on wall)
21 squats

Total time: 19 minutes

Great start and congratulations. I bet you didn't think you could do that a week or two ago.

Indeed I did not.

In fact, not realizing how different each day's workout was, I didn't think I could do that after how I did on D1.

No I left there about 10 years ago. In Las Vegas now.. I do miss the open room that was around the ranch sometimes.

I can't really image I've always been in the city parts of texas, fort worth/dallas. Not much open space around there.

Too bad, Going out into the country can be quite an eye opener. Oh well, Glad to see you getting through week 1. I assume you will be doing it again next week.

Post by jennyfit »

18.5 minutes.

Realized that the first time I wasn't doing the squats correctly, so I went slower this time.

Good job jenny. Slowing down is a good thing and is something i nned to do. I found in my Tri training that no one is paying me to do this so "slow down, Do it right, HAVE FUN" is the main thing.

I think level 6 will have to be a part of my 5 year plan, but it sounds like you're doing really well to be doing that day 3 in under 5 minutes. Kudoes to you. I'm loving this. I can already tell i'm stronger than when I started. I'm going to get me something sturdy to stand on soon to practice negative pull-ups. Also workin' toward a full push-up, but I didn't have to finish any reps out on the wall this week so far. Looking forward to thursday.

Good job. Remember that a way to improve your push ups is to just get into the position and hold. I think you will see a big improvement when you start to practice the negative pull up.
