  1. I was debating purchasing a caliper because the BF% drop will be on my next list also. You'll like the kettlebell I hope, I certainly do. And you can use them for a good variety of things. I've been using my 20lb one for added weight on my squats/lunges lately.
  2. Well we made it! Congratulations everybody!
  3. I did most of my kettlebell training on my own with articles and videos. It seems to me that as long as you're familiar enough with your own body to be able to check your own form it's not so bad. I started really light, like with a 4lb bell, just because I was worried about form. But it was a good experience, I still enjoy it and haven't injured myself
  4. I love the kettlebells! It always seems to me a very good compliment to body weight work outs for that extra boost when needed. Also, I'm not sure if there is etiquette involved in posting links, but Mark's Daily Apple recently had this article about carb intake which might be a good read: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-primal-carbohydrate-continuum/ This has been great btw, and I've been glad to share this adventure with you and everyone else on here!
  5. Progress: 04/03/2014 (Modified Fitloop.co Beginner Routine) 5 minute warm up 6 minutes Body Line Drills 40 steam engines 1 Min Skill work (leg supported L-Sit) Negative push ups 5 x2 Dumbell Press 5 x1 & 4 x1 w/ 20lb kettlebell Dumbell Row 5 x3 w/ 20lb Kettlebell Goblet Squat 5 x1 w/ 20lb Kettlebell Bodyweight Squat 5 x2 Deadlifts 8 x2 w/ 20lb Kettlebell The prevailing theory here is that using the Kettlebells weight will get me to the point where I can do the complete body weight routine without the bruising of my knees when I can't hold the incline push up position I'm doing good
  6. I'm with you on the gym thing, plus at home I can blast my own music!
  7. In the interest of full disclosure, I only did about a quarter of my work out yesterday, the part I was comfortable doing in the office at work while continuing to babysit some computers And I missed my paleo meal, ended up eating two slices of pizza while still at work. I was so hungry, and it was already 8:30 at night. Going to get some extra water today though to balance it out a bit.
  8. Whether I keep the same goals or not will depend a bit on how far I get before the next one starts I'd love to jump in with the Assassins actually, since I will be sticking with body weight exercises of one form or another. Thanks for making me feel so welcome and encouraged!
  9. Just thought I'd stop by and say good job, and thanks for all the encouragement!
  10. So this weekends workout wasn't exactly standard either, but I did manage to get it in. Adding that 10lbs to the squats last Thursday really did in my legs. 03/29/14 5 Minute warm up Squats 10 x1 w/ 10lb Negative push ups 5 x2 Rows 10 x3 w/ 10lb Flys 4 x1 w/ 10lb Dumbell press 10 x1 w/ 10lb 15 second plank x3 Squats 10 x2 (no weight) Deadlift 10 x1 w/ 10 lb I really need to focus more on getting my water in on the weekends, when I'm not at work I seem to totally forget it Hopefully the two day break between the work out Saturday and my upcoming one on Tuesday will get my legs back on t
  11. Thanks. I'm going to go an extra week because I started late, but I can certainly see the finish line!
  12. Progress update from 03/27 Squats 10 x3 w/ 10lb weight Negative push ups 5 x3 Lunges 15 per side Deadlifts 10 w/ 10lb weight Rows 10 x3 w/ 10lb weight 15 second plank x3 Steam engines x60 Lunges 5 per side Did things a little differently this time around. I did the three sets of squats in a row with a 45 second break in between sets. Same with basically all the sets, I did them in a row, rather than as a circuit. I can certainly feel it today, but I'm not sure if that is because of the added weight or doing the sets together. Water intake is on track, and meals are on track as well. F
