Workout Recap - Week of March 4, 2018

March 11, 2018

Well, this was my final full week out here, and as before, things haven't been up to my pre-travel standards on the exercise front.  Even so, I feel like I've managed to maintain some decent standard, so I can't be completely disappointed.  This was the first major trip I'd gone on since I committed to working out regularly, and if nothing else, it's been a learning experience in improvising when I'm in a different environment than what I'm used to.

Monday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

One-Armed Push Ups, Feet Together - 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats, Both Hands Behind Me - 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Closing Bridges - 1 set of 6 (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

Just a quick workout squeezed in between finishing my work for the day and having dinner.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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 6 (pass)

 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups

 

The main take-away I'm seeing with this one was doing sets of 6 for the Superman push ups instead of just sets of 4.  I know there's a limit to how much the human body can exert maximal explosive force without needing to rest, so I don't see myself pushing for bigger sets any time soon, but I think this adds a nice little extra challenge to the bonus while still keeping it to the same number of total reps to avoid burning out.

 

Thursday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 10 (pass)

Pistol Squats, Both Hands Behind Me - 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Closing Bridges - 1 set of 6 (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

A repeat of the previous day, save for half the sets and without any bonus.  In other words, this was something quick that I squeezed in between other obligations.

 

Friday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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)

Bridges - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 hip clap push ups, 5 burpees, 5 pistol squats, some swimming

 

The return of the poolside workout!  Actually, this day was doubly exciting since I also figured out a way to improve a pull up station using some towels and a door.  It's too awkward of a thing to use as part of these more regimented workouts, but as something to just grab and do a few pull ups on while walking by, it works fine.

 

Saturday

 

 

I walked for a total of about 14 kilometers.  Just decided to split this out explicitly rather than burying it in the description of another day, even though I don't count it as a real workout.
