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.

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.

Fun is being had for sure.

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.
