Workout Recap - Week of March 11, 2018

March 19, 2018

So, another week of mixing travel with working out.  I've talked about that enough times for the implications to be understood by this point.



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 6, each side (pass)

3-Limb Bridge Cycle - 2 sets of 15 breaths, each combination (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 hip clap push ups


Another variation on the poolside workout, though I didn't do any bonus swimming on this day.  There's a high likelihood that I'll be making more of these business trips in the near future, and I think that the biggest thing I can do to improve my workouts while I'm there is to remember to bring along a jump rope.  I don't plan to do any actual jumping with it (well, maybe some suicide jumps, if I can find a way to take out the slack), but I think I can sling it over stuff for the purposes of doing pull ups.




Type: Pass/Fail


Towel Pull Ups - 1 set of 5 (pass)

Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 12 (pass)

Pistol Squats - 1 set of 5 (pass)


Bonus: none


I wasn't intending on doing a workout on this day since I was going to be traveling in the afternoon/evening, but I woke up freakishly early, so I squeezed this in before breakfast.  Nothing special in absolute terms, but I've been neglecting my arm flexors so much during this trip that I'm glad I managed to do a little bit of work on them before returning.




17 kilometers of walking.





Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups, 5 chin ups


Ah, finally back in my domicile, and that means that I was long past due to do some pull up work.  I've had some regression from where I was before the trip, so I thought it'd be best to take a little time to ease my way back into them instead of going full bore right away.  I'm definitely making them a point of emphasis for the next few workouts, though, as well as mixing in a lot of undocumented moments of just grabbing the bar for a few lifts when I'm not doing something else.
