    I needed workout music today, so I went over to Mixcloud and clicked the first mix to tickle my fancy. Struck gold.

    Since it has been a while, I thought I'd post some updated pictures. In the last year I have had surgery to repair an umbilical hernia and I also broke my ankle. Needless to say, the number of...

    Yes. Do all the pull-ups, then all the push-ups, then all the squats.

    The last time I lifted weights was 1996, but we're all built differently. I have always been somewhat stocky.

    I just eat primal.

    I am now 42 years old and weigh 195 lbs.

    I broke my ankle in the fall and have been less active as a result, but I have been back at SimpleFit since December.

    I'll throw a plug for SimpleFit in here. It incorporates some elements of HIIT with a simple but motivating system of levels. Beat one level, move on to the next MUCH HARDER level.

    When I got to Level 8, I started looking around for another workout. I decided I'd rather make up my own (based on the SimpleFit model) than do the Intermediate workouts. Some of the stuff...

    Start the clock.
    Do 1 round.
    Repeat.
    Stop exercising when 20 minutes have elapsed.

    If you have to catch your breath between rounds (and who doesn't?) the clock keeps running.

    I don't think it's lame to change the program to suit your situation. Your version of SF sounds very challenging! What's lame is not doing a program at all.

    Broken Ankle

    In case anyone is wondering, I have not been around for a while because I broke my ankle on Sept. 30. No SimpleFit for me!

    I am not going to create a fake account just to check, but I really doubt that's true. (If it is true, it's a stupid anti-spam measure.)
