    I started with level 1. I figured start at the top. In the first 2 days, you can already notice more definition in my arms than ever before and I used to be heavy into weightlifting.

    Even if you start at level 1 it only takes a week to level up and you can re-assess after day 3 of your first week. If you do it in a minute you are clearly pretty good and could probably skip up to level 3 or 4!

    Good luck and enjoy!

    I can't do a pull up so I'm doing Australian pullups at the moment, this is why I started at level 1. I just did my first negative ever today.

    Just wanted to thank cheapo for posting about SimpleFit way back when. I started today by jumping into Day 1 / Level 3 and got through 36 sets in the 20 minutes allotted. I'm excited to use a structured program like this and look forward to tracking my progress!

    Cheapo,

    When do you decide to move on to the next level?

    I believe it is when you can complete the 3rd workout in less than 5 minutes..

    I cannot yet do pull ups.
    The subs I have been doing are inverted pull ups. I jump up to the bar, hold for 2 seconds and then count to 4 for my let down. Is this sufficient enough for a substitute?
    Should I try something else.

    Cheapo,

    What level are you on and are you still on beginner, intermediate, or advanced?

    The Level 8 on Beginner Day 3 (50 pull ups, 100 push ups and 100 squats in 5 minutes or less) looks very tough.
    I don't know how you do it.

    This is a great simple workout that I want to try! My problem is, that I am a gym rat and love being at the gym. I love lifting weights and having short intense workouts at the gym. At this point, I'm just not willing to give that up.

    Is there a rational, productive way to incorporate the simple fit into a weight training program without all together abandoning the weights. I'm sure I could figure something out, but was curious if anyone has come up with something and had success.

    some how im just hearing about this. looks pretty interesting so i think ill give it a try. i like PBF but find myself slacking off on it and not doing as many reps as i should be, especially when pull ups are concerned. i think this will keep me more honest since it is a timed exercise
