Workout Recap - Week of February 18, 2018
Two steps forward, two steps back. Finally stopped moving around to new places, at least for the time being, but I had enough other things come up to take care of along the way that I wasn't able to do as much as I would've liked to on the exercise front. Having another weekend of significant walking (about 23 kilometers this time, between Friday and Saturday combined) alleviates some of that, but it's not quite the same.
One-Armed Push Ups, Feet Together – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Pistol Squats, both hands behind me – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
3-Limb Bridge Isometric Holds – 2 sets of 15 breaths, cycling through each limb (pass)
Straight Leg Raises – 2 sets of 20 (pass)
Bonus: 4 sets of 3 hip clap push ups
This was a nice bit of an expansion on the poolside workouts I did to close out last week. Circumstances conspired to keep me from doing any more of those in this week, but this seems like a decent benchmark to pick up from for the next one.
Australian Pull Ups – 2 sets of 10 (pass)
Handstand Push Ups – 2 sets of 5 (pass)
Pistol Squats – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
A hotel room quickie. I happened to wake up far earlier than I'd needed to on this day, and since I wasn't finding good opportunities to work out much during the week, I decided that doing a little something to fill in that extra time would be a good idea.
Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups – 2 sets of 10 (pass) Pistol Squats, both hands behind me – 2 sets of 5, each side (pass) Closing Bridges – 2 sets of 10 (pass)
Bonus: 4 sets of 3 Superman push ups
This was another opportunistic time filler, this time before going on the touristic weekend trip. Once again, it was nothing too remarkable in and of itself, but within the greater context of the limited time that I've had for the past few weeks, something is better than nothing.
