Workout Recap - Week of February 11, 2018

February 17, 2018


I said last week that I'd start ramping things up again soon, but apparently, this week was too soon for that.  Continuing to travel and getting settled into new places is time-consuming, particularly when there's also a language barrier to deal with, and that's also not even considering that I've been putting in a lot of work for my job along the way.  Now, could I have done more?  Yeah, certainly, and I think it's important to be aware that I made the choice to prioritize other things in the spare time that I had.

 

Speaking of which, one of those things was to do an absurd amount of trekking around the small town that I found myself in.  It wasn't quite as much as last week, but walking about 20 km in a single day is still nothing to scoff at.

Monday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

One-Armed Push Ups, Feet Together – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Pistol Squats – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Stand-to-Stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up – 2 sets of 6 (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

Similar to how I'd had an easy workout near the start of last week just to get my body moving again after riding an airplane, I did the same again this week.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 


21 reps/15 reps/9 reps of plyometric lunges

21 reps/15 reps/9 reps of diamond push ups

21 reps/15 reps/9 reps of straight leg raises

 

Time = 4:15

 

Bonus: 3 pistol squats (each side), 5 bridges

 

I'd been focusing on pass/fail-type workouts since last week to give myself a chance to get acclimatized to the local conditions, since I'm in a very different environment from where I live.  As I've become pretty comfortable, though, it's time to start incentivizing pushing the pace.

 

Thursday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

3 sets of:


10 Burpees
15 Push Ups

20 Tuck Jumps

 

Time = 6:15

 

Bonus: 5 handstand push ups

 


Nothing too insightful to say about this one.  It's really just a slightly easier version of a routine that I've done plenty of times before.  I'd wanted to use it as a gauge of how well I was adjusting to my current location and still maintaining my performance, and I think it gave a solid result on both accounts.  That having been said, I still skipped exercising for the rest of the week (Friday was just a bad day for me and an even worse day for a close friend, and Saturday featured the aforementioned 20 km of walking), so I should aimto continue proving myself to myself
