I tried level 1/day 1 and loved it! I've never been into lifting free weights and have always gravitated towards body weight exercises. I plan to add in my weight vest on day 2, to build some more strength. Overall, I love the simplicity and the challenge these workouts offer. Thanks for this post cheapo.
Thanks for posting this. I really need to start working out more and this is something I could see myself getting into pretty easily. I grab the pullup bar intermittently during the week, but having a program to follow will help a lot.
Congrats on the progress so far, too. Looking good man, keep it up!
Cheapo - how many day a week? I may have missed it in your thread. Sorry if redundant. I looked at the link you posted; the way it is worded there suggests that you do EACH group of exercises 3 times a week meaning that there are some days you complete two "days" in one day?
cheapo...great job! I'm starting this tomorrow.. been crossfit scaled training. But this looks like something
I want to add to my training... along with lifting heavy and sprints and cardio training.. thanks for sharing.
Hey Cheapo (love the name...suits my family as well)! I will begin this next Monday. It looks like something I could get into. NOW...all I need to do is locate a pull up bar that can accommodate my current weight (306 pounds) AND my height 6'4". Making one myself is looking like it might happen....*sigh* (digs around shed for inadequate tools)....
As to the abs...Do the pull ups and push ups also work abs? I haven't heard that before, but I hope that is the case because I hate sit-ups.
Just finished my first week of simpleFit. Day 1, I did for pure high intensity. Day 2 I added in a weight vest to build more strength. Day 3, I went hard, so I could advance. Immediately following day 3, I did my tabata sprints. Overall I'd say, if you like simple, challenging workouts, give simplefit a try.
32 rounds is a respectable—definitely not measly—result.
Usually, if I can manage 30+ rounds of Day 1, it means I will be able to beat Day 3 that week. So I would expect you'll be at Level 2 next week!
At one point, after falling off the workout wagon for a few months, I decided to re-start SimpleFit at the bottom of the ladder.
My L1D1 result was 58 rounds! But I have never managed a result like that during the normal progression through the program.
