Workout Recap - Week of March 11, 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.
