  1. Hi, I started with regural fitness when I was building up, like bootcamps and bodyweight excersises. Then I did a couple of months of very simple lifting with dumbells (3 or 4 excersises) and that's when I started pull-ups/chin-ups. Then I went into StrongLifts 5x5 for about a year, and did MadCow afterwards. I would say the rule of thumb is to achieve 10 reps and then progress to the next level of the excersise. Right now I am doing a crazy Lyle McDonald's program, lol. Good luck with starting up. If you are consistent, eat well and train smart, you'd be amazed how quick the strength builds up.

    Hi Leida - I liked your post in the thread about pullups! I JUST started some primal workouts and I know I can't do a pullup... but don't have a bar... was gonna try the trees outside. grin. I'm pretty week... decided a year was probably when I could really count on being strong.

    Do you do the 2x a week essential movements or more?

    I've been doing the slow thing most every day and I do the sprint workouts once a week... new to the functional strength training with the essential movements.

    Thanks! Shannon
